Since its launch, Windows 11 has been regarded by many people as Windows 10 with a new skin. This is mainly because Microsoft still retains many old traces in the entire new generation of the Windows system. However, in fact, Microsoft is constantly improving this situation, and Microsoft has also been able to take this opportunity to upgrade some of the old system’s own apps, such as new notepad and drawing tools, and now the Windows 11 Build 25158 has also made a big upgrade to Media Player.
Windows Media Player is believed to be very missed by those who started using Windows in the early 2000s. Especially in the XP era, it was a fairly common music player, and Microsoft has kept it until now. However, since Windows 10, there has been a Groove music player, so that everyone has almost forgotten about it.
Microsoft has already upgraded the interface of Media Player not long ago and added playing CD, and now Windows
11 Media Player had added support for CD playback. Users can convert the music on their CDs to AAC, WMA, FLAC, or ALAC files for easy transfer to a mobile phone or tablet for listening. This is very useful for some users who are still buying CD music discs. Although there are many such tools, it can save a lot of trouble if Windows can do it with its own app.
By default, Media Player will convert CDs to 96 or 256kbps AAC format, but not to the more commonly used MP3 format.
