View Full Version : Windows Media Player

Just curious....
Are there two versions of the Windows Media Player?

When you right click an mp3 file and select 'open with' there are two WMPlayers listed there...one with an (R) beside it - I presume this means registered? This pc is not quite a year old and came with the media players already installed.
What's the difference between the standard windows player and this (R) version?

Hi Lynne,
One version is probably that which came with the original OS, the other an update.
On mine I have Media Player 7.1 as the current player, listed as wmplayer; mplayer, which is the original player with the OS; and mplayer2 which is version 6.4.
