The free AOL Media Player runs on windows and lets you listen to audio or play video.

AOL is an old name on the Internet. There are few people who don't remember the old "America Online" discs that used to circulate in snail mail. The amazing thing is that AOL still exists in some form, though it is no longer the dominant ISP or search engine in the world. The AOL media player still works for Windows and you can use it to watch videos or listen to music that plays on the AOL network.

This version of the media player is only going to work with Windows XP and former versions of Windows, so don't expect to play it on anything newer than that. This is unfortunate but most people who still use AOL will probably also appreciate the older operating systems and still be able to use it.

There have been over 100,000 downloads of the media player, making it popular with enough people to keep it relevant. Many countries newer to the Internet appreciate its simplicity but feature richness, too.

Pros

  • AOL is a very trusted brand among households, so the media player will definitely be a trustworthy addition to any software library
  • Available with many older models of Windows
  • Plays a large variety of audio and video formats

Cons

  • A bit dated in terms of today's audio capabilities
  • Can't be used with newer versions of Windows

Despite the fact that the program is a bit dated, it does have its charms. If you were a fan of AOL in the old days, and you have an older operating system, it might be worth it to give this media player a try.
