I just upgraded from WMP 8 to WMP9 (yes, I know there is a 10 available now). When installing I just accepted all the default options.
Now, when starting the stream to listen to B.com it opens in a WMP window where the "Now Playing" information is displayed as well. I used to open up 2 separate windows...1 for the stream and one for the Now Playing. A couple of years ago I suggested that this could probably be combined and the day has finally come! Hooray folks!
