Playing Music, Video, and CDs

Like listening to music and watching videos? Windows XP includes Windows Media Player, so it's a cinch to:

  • Tune in Internet radio.
  • Download music or movies from the Web.
  • Watch streaming video broadcasts.
  • Play your own CDs.

Windows Media Player makes it easy to create your own customizable jukebox. Just:

  1. Copy your personal CDs onto your computer or download music from the Internet.
  2. Arrange selections in any order you want.
  3. Store the playlist.

The computer will play your selections back—one after another, in any order you choose, any time you like. You can even make your own CDs! Next
