Download Windows Media Player 12



If you're missing this classic Windows utility, we're here to show you how to get it back quickly and for free. We'll also offer up some alternative media players because Windows Media Player hasn't seen a major update in years.


Windows Media Player is software that plays and manages music and video files. If you're new to Windows, you may never have heard of it, let alone used it. Nonetheless, Windows Media Player was the de-facto media player for many, especially Windows 8 and prior versions.


One of the best media players you can download is VLC media player. This open-source, cross-platform software will run pretty much any audio or video file that you throw at it, thanks to its huge amount of video codec support.


Rather than using a 10+ year old media player, there are better, more modern alternatives to Windows Media Player available for Windows users. Plenty of free media players for Windows exist, but the best option for most users is likely to be VLC.


As third-party media players go, VLC is the ultimate option for most Windows and Mac users. It plays pretty much every type of media file, and you can even use VLC to manage music playlists or use VLC with Chromecast to play media content on a TV remotely.

Windows Media Player is one of the most popular multimedia players in the world. As the default choice for Windows PCs, this software lets you play music and videos without any issues. WMP comes as a built-in media player with every version of the Windows operating system. Over the years, regular updates have introduced new features, making the tool more powerful than iTunes for Windows, VLC, and other similar apps.

A good number of multimedia players have launched in the market. So, to keep up with changing times, Microsoft brought some major changes to Windows Media Player.

You can choose from a Blue UI, a professional Black Fascia theme, and other options according to your preference.


We've prepared a list of common WMP problems with tips about how to fix them, as well as lists of WMP plug-ins to extend its functionality or alternative media-player programs if you're no longer thrilled with WMP.


did everything as described, but when i minimize the player still not got mini-toolbar.. I now have the option on taskbar for the media player toolbar which is checked, but no toolbar! any sugestions?


Okay this advice may be all well and fine for computer geeks but for the average person there is no way that we can implement this plan. Its too complex. I got as far as downloading the dll. Why on earth did Micorosoft come up with such a inferior plan for windows media player 12? The ability to use a mini player version should be put back into the player.


works on windows 10 tech preview. You have to open a movie with WMP 12 then minimize it, then right click on tool bar and under toolbars select windows media player. Close the minimized WMP 12 and press play on the toolbar player. BAM!
