Many of you weren’t happy to lose Windows Media Center as an included feature in Windows 8 and are even sadder to see that it’s going away completely in Windows 10. A reader asked. “Can we download Windows Media Player 12 for Windows 10? If not, what’s a good alternative. I have tried Winamp, Media Monkey & Clementine. None of them have as nice and user-friendly interface as the WMP. Is there something. else out there that compares?”


While Windows Media Center is going away for good, Windows Media Player is alive and well in Windows 10 and included in the operating system.  Windows Media Center allowed you to record and watch TVs, play DVDs, make slideshows and watch DVDs.  Windows Media player has simpler functions but still allows you play music and video and organize your digital media collection.

Although if you’re looking for a good alternative to it, I suggest VLC Media Player.
