Hey

Its an interesting player, a Windows Media Player hosted ActiveX Control :P

But the screenfade when it starts up is annoying. The first time i thought my TFT had gone up in smoke so i turned my computer and screen off at the wall. LOL.

However, I prefer it to WindowsMP because it has better controls. Where WindowsMP uses Ctrl+P to play/pause the video, SteamMP used the space bar. This function is great when you're watching subtitled shows that are sometimes too quick to read. In addition you can pause and then go frame-by-frame by using the right arrow key (frame-by-frame doesn't seem to be available in WindowsMP). The up and down arrow keys also allow you to skip ahead and back in small jumps. The added functionality combined with it's simplicity make it my prefered video player. I copied it onto my desktop and now I simply drag-and-drop videos onto it when I want to watch something.
