So it's ok to install ontop even if I wasn't using the last officially released beta? I was using that pre version. Build 11.0.5358.4826, and I think the officially released one was 4827. I doubt it makes a difference but just checking.

WMP11 beta 1 (left) & beta 2 (right):

beta 2:

New icon look: iconuw5.gif

Thank God they got rid of the black line in the tabs! The lighter color fits in much better and doesn't scream "We screwed up coding the tabs!". From the original screenshots, before beta 1, I thought the line was a glitch, but then I tried it...

When I enable the WMP little toolbar thing, how do I disable the box that pops up displaying song information. Everytime I mouse over it the info. pops.up.

alot of people say to uninstall the other one before installing this one to get alot better reports out of it... But i only went ahead and install overtop... So yeah it's pretty much ok to do so...

ok your'll see two arrows one going upwards and the other one going downwards in the upper right hand cornor... Just hit the down arrow and that'll close the song info window.

Does anyone know if XPlay 2 will work with this beta? I love that program since I can sync my ipod through windows media player so Im not going to install this if it messes that up at all.

Did anyone notice if they go to a site that plays videos (esportsea.com premium anyway) the video window is now WMP11. Even when I had WMP11, it was still the old Version 10 look, now it finally changed.

You can install right over Beta 1.

I really like the new icons :) Though a bit 'iTuneseque'. But really nice either way.
