Media Player has been around for several years, bringing musical joy to those who can’t function without songs playing in the background. I, for one, can’t work or produce articles like this unless YouTube Music is running my playlist. The new Windows 11 25262 update brings with it a new solution: you can now browse your video folders.
Why is this handy? Well, you wouldn’t understand the benefit of it unless you’ve personally tried to locate a specific video among your thousands of folders or multiple hard drives. Now, you can check any volders (my made-up name for video folders) that may exist on your PC. It makes it easier when you want to make a new playlist.
Another feature that’s been added is the ability to rip those beloved CDs of yours to save songs on your computer. It’s helpful in case you lose the compact discs and your beloved songs for all time. I think DJs and Karaoke hosts will enjoy this feature the most, especially if music brings in the money.
I want to bring up an interesting thought, though. Is Media Player fighting a losing battle? How many of us actually waste the precious storage we have on our devices for music? We have so many online platforms now where we can listen to music at will. Will we truely reach a situation where we won’t have internet access to hear our beloved songs, or what are we worried about?
Perhaps, it’s more for those people who don’t want platforms like YouTube and Spotify to steal their personal information or use it for advertising purposes. If, for some reason, you’re still listening to music offline to save internet data or when you don’t have access, then these updates to Media Player are for you.
