Windows Media Player Now Features CD Ripping
Windows Media Player Now Features CD Ripping
A new update is now available for download
Jul 15, 2022 07:44 GMT  ·  By Bogdan Popa       

Microsoft has announced a new update for the modern Media Player experience on Windows 11, as the company has completed the development of CD ripping support.

While for many people out there CD ripping feels like a super-outdated feature, Microsoft wants to make the new Media Player a feature-complete application, so even such old functionality makes sense in the long term.

The new feature is part of the latest update, though worth knowing is that only a handful of formats are currently supported.

“Back in March, we introduced CD playback support to Media Player. With the latest update, we are adding support for CD ripping as well. Supported formats in this release include AAC, WMA, FLAC, and ALAC,” Microsoft announced.

The new CD ripping functionality is available as part of version 11.2206.30.0.
The new Media Player

Microsoft officially started the rollout of the new Media Player back in November, with the company explaining that its purpose was to offer a modern multimedia experience in Windows 11. The legacy version of Windows Media Player continues to be available, but of course, it’s not getting any new updates.

“We designed the new Media Player to make listening to and watching your multimedia content more enjoyable on Windows 11, and we’re really excited to introduce it to all of you! Media Player beautifully showcases your local music and video collections and compliments the new look and feel of Windows 11,” Microsoft explained.

“At the heart of Media Player is a full-featured music library that allows you to quickly browse and play music, as well as create and manage playlists. If your music collection is in Groove Music today, your library and playlists will automatically migrate to this new experience. The update to the new Media Player will replace the Groove Music app. The dedicated playback view features album art and rich artist imagery; these will appear in the full screen and mini player experiences as well.”
