Why are you insisting so hard on using inferior formats in an inferior player? Foobar2000 can, unlike WMP, play almost any format in use - including, to mention only a fraction; wma, mp3, mpc, mp4 and ogg. In adddition, unlike WMP, it can be configured to do almost everything you can imagine. If you could show me one feature that WMP does better than Foobar2000 (with 3d party plugins) I'll eat my combatboots with Tabasco Sauce and lettuce while standing on my head. (This is in respect to audio only, I know Foobar2000 doesn't play video, neither will it - it's an audioplayer, not a mediaplayer.)

Also, as Seed pointed out, with RadLight MPC DirectShow filter you can play MPC files in WMP if you so desire...

Some players that will play MPC files are:

Winamp http://www.winamp.com/
Foobar2000 http://www.foobar2000.org/
Quintessential http://www.quinnware.com/
XMPlay http://www.un4seen.com/
Coolplayer http://coolplayer.sourceforge.net/

Media Jukebox http://www.musicex.com/mediajukebox/
DeliPlayer http://www.deliplayer.com/
Apollo http://koti.welho.com/hylinen/apollo/
XMMS http://www.xmms.org/
BMP http://www.sosdg.org/~larne/w/Main_Page
LAMIP http://fondriest.frederic.free.fr/realisations/lamip/
Betaplayer http://betaplayer.corecodec.org/

And probably many others not mentioned here...
For some of these players you must download and install a plug-in.

Besides, how do you think ol' Bob Marely would have felt about your enthusiastic support of big corporate american monopolistic capitalism? :wink:
