Question Windows Media Player 8

how do you get Windows Media Player 8? It was such a good program when it was out for sp1, but how would i get rid of 10 series, and have windows media player 8 instead?

Any help is appreciated.

Don't think you'll be able to get it anywhere. If someones got an installer for it then maybe there'll send it to you. Mircosoft are all WMP10, once they hit 11 (or whatevers next) then they'll ignore WMP10, as most people will want the newer one.

EDIT: check here my find something here
