Does not require any licences. Goes well with the iPod.
AAC format. Loses music and isn't intelligent enough to retrieve it. The ripping speed is awful, even when I was using an Intel Pentium 4 processor.
When I first got iTunes, it seemed to me that it was going to work well. It's small enough to run on an Intel Pentium 2 MMX (and they are slow) in conjunction with MSN Messenger. I found with the Windows Media Player, that it would often stop my PC, and then I would have to re-load it up, or it would always mess up its plug-ins, and I would wonder why they didn't work.
The sound quality that I received from iTunes was also extremely good (and you can keep improving it by doing an alter in the options). It also took me less time to copy my music on to an iPod than it took with Windows to a Zen (if that makes sense). When my iPod went down, I loved the fact that you were able to convert any song you choose to MP3 format (this saved me a lot of time).
The poor point about this media player is that it rips at an awfully slow speed, even with a high speed processor (Intel P4 AMD Athlon). It also has a thing about the storage of files (now I know that I cannot store 1000+ songs on my desktop). If you move the file to a certain folder, then you get the little exclamation mark. At least with the Windows Media Player 9 it retrieves the data.
