Here are the major changes in this version:-
- Fixes have been made for issues that occurred in the first beta release of Windows Media Player 11 for Windows XP.
- More online stores are available in this beta release of Windows Media Player 11 for Windows XP.
- The functionality of Windows Media Connect is now integrated into Windows Media Player 11 Beta 2 for Windows XP as the new Media Sharing feature, which lets you enjoy the contents of your Windows Media Player library from anywhere in your home. If you have a home network (wired or wireless), you can use Windows Media Player 11 to stream the contents of your library to networked devices such as Xbox 360 or other digital media receivers.
Windows Media Player 11 is definitely better than all of the previous versions and it is quite good to see that Microsoft is working hard to compete with better media players like iTunes.
