I think you might be looking at codecs or such.

WMP is intigrated with Windows 7. How did you manage to uninstall it? It's not in Programs and Features.

I'm not too sure if it is avalable as a stand alone download from Microsoft. It might be from third party sights but I can't vouch for that.

I do know that if you reinstall Windows 7 it will include WMP 12.

New playback modes

The new Now Playing mode is a study in minimalism: It shows only the controls you need, so nothing comes between you and your music or video. A new taskbar thumbnail with playback controls makes previewing easier and fun.

Easier, more fun

Enjoy smarter DVD playback, 15-second song previews, Jump Lists for fast access to favorite media. And that's just for starters.
