Windows Media Player 12: Bug or Feature?

Something interesting found in Windows Media Player 12:

1. Play a music file in WMP 12. It may be single file or group of files and you can play any format.

2. Now either move the Seek slider (progress bar) or click on "Next" button.

3. As soon as you move the slider or click on Next button, immediately click anywhere inside WMP window and hold it. Now you'll start enjoying the bug.

The songs starts playing in Fast-forward mode.


Now let us know your opinion about it. Is it a bug or is it supposed to be a feature?

IMO its a bug. Actually when you click and hold the "Next" button, its supposed to fast-forward the music track but in the above mentioned steps, we are not holding the Next button.

  • Works only in the bar containing the play/pause and other buttons.. You click anywhere above the seek slider and nothing will happen. It seems like a bug to me.
    I could re-produce it.. only as VG said click n hold anywhere in the bottom bar and you'll be able to reproduce it.. Don't go above the seek slider.
