    Windows 10 removal of windows media player

    It appears that MS has elected to remove the Windows Media Player. This is concerning due to creating many playlists (WPL files). Is there a relatively painless way to find a comparable player which will be compatible wtih the wpl format so that I can easily migrate my playlists? If not, any recommendations for a media player (music mostly) where I can re-create my playlists?

    Windows Media Player is in Windows 10.

    Windows Media Center is not.

    They haven't removed Media Player.

    They have removed Media Centre

    Your playlists should still be able to be opened with Media Player for music at least and if you want video I can recommend VLC.
