Windows 10 integrates various elements and applications through its various editions and one of these is the Windows Media player, this has been present since the initial versions of Windows, but has received updates over the years, with this player we have functions like:

 

Windows Media Player Features

  • Built-in basic library and playback functions
  • Supports formats like WAV, MP3, WMA, etc.
  • Windows Media Player has native support for H.264 and MPEG-4 Part 2 video formats, ALAC, AAC [15] and 3GP audio,, ​​MP4 and MOV
  • Various display options
  • Recording, ripping and playing discs
  • Synchronization with portable media and more
