Puzzle Solved! Perfect Feeling!

I'm in exam weeks now, so I'm gonna to make this very succinct.

All this while, I never knew what mandarin songs I was listening as WMP and itune can't display mandarin word though I'd run Microsoft AppLocale. Until I saw Shane's MSN Messenger can display the mandarin songs' title nicely, this surely arouse my strong intuition to find out the reason behind. I attempted quite a number of ways but to no avail. And last night (at the time of 4am), I consulted a friend of mine, a computer geek, Ken, he suggested me to change my laptop's non-unicode language to Chinese. And so I changed it to Chinese PRC, amazingly WMP could then display the song's title. But when I tried a few more mandarin songs, I found that WMP could only display simplified Chinese but not Traditional Chinese. And thus, WMP still showed alien title when I play songs with Traditional Chinese wordings.

Ken then suggested me to edit the title one by one manually, which of course as a lazy person, I definitely won't consider that. I then went googling about that, until I bumped into lowyat forum. To my amaze, many people discussed about this issue too. One of the post suggested to install TTplayer, as it could display all songs be it English, Mandarin, Japanese or Korean. And so without wasting any time, I quickly downloaded, installed and played it.

This is the first time, China product satisfied me! TTplayer is so comprehensive. It shows not only title, singer, etc (these are basic equipment in any player), but also lyrics! This is definitely a good news for karaoke kaki (but not me)! Anyway it benefits me in the way I do not need to look into internet to search lyrics anymore. Another selling point of TTplayer is that it takes a very small capacity (only 3MB) instead of 50MB(itune). Not only that, it also updates us with latest songs, and we can download it free from the qianqian website (bear in mind downloading songs is illegal, but who cares =P).

TTplayer is really a onestop

I'm really delightful now to have this gnawing problem solved. How I wish I have this strong determination too to solve academic problems @@

Downloading songs isn't always illegal...but downloading songs from illegal source(s) or without paying the author for the song is illegal :P
