WMP9 uses more CPU power and overall system resources.

I can only suggest you look into WinTasks 4 (If you're keen I have a download Link of a fully working version) which will let you specify the priority for WMP9

Otherwise, Upgrade your PC perhaps (What are your system Spec's?)

could also try changing the option for media player to use video accleration.

you can still use the old mediaplayer, its called mplayer2.exe, just search your harddrive for it. Don't recommend Media Player 9, its painfully slow on my athlon 1800+, takes about 30s before it opens a file once you click on it

Something odd here!!!!!

My old 225mmx only takes 9 secs from desktop to fully open and 3 seconds between stopping a track and having a new one start.

Have I missed something, mhz’s now faster than ghz’s? :^o

I also have recently up-graded from MP7.1 to 9, and find it a piece of the proverbial. Any song over 192 bitrate it won't play clearly, is sluggishly slow and sometimes the visualisations won't even show, much less play. I am also running Win 98se, 500 mghz and 183 mg ram. Media Player 7.1 used to run fine, even if it was slow, so I am interested in comments on this thread as well. Any comments welcome.
