Microsoft releases Media Player 11 Beta 2

More interesting Windows news, Microsoft has just released Beta 2 of its updated MediaPlayer 11, which will be coupled with Vista. On top of a host of new features such as integration with the Xbox 360, wifi-transfer capabilities, integration with the Zune (Microsoft's future media player), CD ripping, DVD management and more, the player is designed to be an overall "media hub" of a PC. Of course, it's incompatible with music purchased via iTunes, but supports anything that uses Microsoft's proprietary DRM. If you have a machine running XP SP2 or higher, you will be able to use the media player now and after it's official release.
