Need of plugins
Plugins are small utilities or add-ons which have the ability to add to, or can extend the built-in functions of Windows Media Player. The plugins will be mainly in three categories. They are plugins, skins and visualizations. You will be able to improve the functions of Windows Media Player by using these plugins. Each plugin has got its own function. Some will add audio and video quality and some will have ability to display lyrics.
This plugin is old and can be used with WMP 11 which is on Windows XP. You can download this plugin from the website. The main task of this plugin is to put your system to sleep after your playlist finishes playing. If it is not displayed automatically, you need to go to full mode first. Then select 'View', 'Plugins' and click 'Armen Hakobyan’s Sleep Timer'. From the onscreen menu you need to select 'Standby', which can also be used to shut down the system and select 'Mute'. Before you click 'Start Timer', you need to start one playlist or select any one song. After that the plugin will start working.
It is seen that most videos, whether they are downloaded or streamed, will tend to be blurry. This might be due to the reduction in the resolution and the file size. This might be more obvious when you see the video in full screen view on a very high resolution screen. The PixelFusion plugin will solve this issue. After installation, the settings of this plugin can be found under 'Options', 'Plugins', 'Video DSP Pixelfusion' plugin and then the 'Properties' button.
