Hi everyone;
Can anyone recommend a "basic" media player to download for a Win95 machine.
OK, I know its an old OS, but its the computer used by my kids.
I want it to be able to play video files. Would prefer WMP, but it's not available for Win95 OS
Cheers,
Baldy:-)

an earlier version of winamp (like 2.x range). (try oldversion.com. WMP is on there too)
if you want better playlist support there is a quite cool one called zinf (zinf.org)

Ive used Soritong to play mp3's on a 486 DX66 with 24MB Ram running Win98SE...

For Video's, you're best to get Windows Media Player 6.4 :-)


Chill.
