Chapter 5. Playing Music and Other Media

In Windows 7, you play music and other media using the Windows Media Player program. Windows Media Player stores your music files and other media in a special library, and you can use that library to browse your music and display the files by album, artist, genre, and more.

You can also use Windows Media Player to listen to audio files stored on your computer, and to play CDs that you insert into your computer CD or DVD drive. Windows Media Player also enables you to watch video files, play DVD discs, and even create your own music CDs.
