Dopisp: sync your iPod to Windows Media Player 11

Why anyone would want to swap iTunes for WMP11 is beyond me, but if you must:

The plug-in enables WMP 11 to interact with your iPod as though it were any portable player. Once it’s connected, you can sync your MP3 library, complete with tags and playlists. Alas, Dopisp doesn’t support any kind of DRM-protected tracks (wouldn’t that be sweet).”

Get it here.

  1. Thanks for the link, I’ve come up with one good reason to swap after buying an Internet radio recently – iTunes doesn’t have any built-in UPNP server which Media Player 11 does. Unless some one can point me towards a freeware tool, it’s far cheaper to buy the plugin than to buy a UPNP server that can use the iTunes. I was pretty shocked that I cannot natively stream iTunes to the radio via UPNP…..but there you go, bye bye iTunes.

  3. Another reason: iTunes syncs with my iPod but can’t stream to my Xbox 360. Windows Media Player streams to my Xbox 360 but can’t sync to my iPod. This means I have two copies of my music library on my computer, one for iTunes and one for WMP, taking up double the space it should be. Now that dopisp allows WMP to sync with my iPod I no longer need iTunes or it’s copy of my library – freeing up 40GB of hard drive space and eliminating the hassle of maintaining two libraries.
