MIcrosoft Removed A Key Feature From Windows Media Player
Recently Microsoft ended support for the Windows 7 by the end of the year, but till then Microsoft is trying to update it to windows 10. Now in the series, Microsoft has also removed one of the important features on the windows media player.
last week Microsoft made an announcement that they will no longer be supporting downloading metadata from the windows server for the Windows 7 Users. So user won't be able to download any metadata from Windows Media Center and the media player.
“Going forward, you may be unable to view information (metadata) such as the title, genre, and artist for songs, and the director, actors, cover art, and TV guide for movies in Windows Media Center and Windows Media Player. After looking at customer feedback and usage data, Microsoft decided to discontinue this service,” said the company on its website.
“This means that new metadata won’t be updated on media players that are installed on your Windows device. However, any information that’s already been downloaded will still be available. This change doesn’t affect any major media player functions such as playback, navigating collections, media streaming, and so forth. Only secondary features that require downloading of new metadata are potentially affected,” it added.
This Update from Microsoft won't be affecting users from Windows 10, but those who are using Windows 8 and 8.1 can be affected a little. so we can say that now the user can move towards third-party media players to play media.
