What is nsplayer exactly? I'm pretty sure it's windows media player ... probally a mod or something but I haven't been able to specifically tag it to anything.

Check it out on Google -- it appears to be a game.

I usually research before I post. I did not see anything that led me to believe that the game site has anything to do with the nsplayer.

Digging further, I learned that there are both embedded versions of WMP and stand alone versions. From various forum discussions I've read, the standalone versions use the UA of nsplayer. But on other forums I also read that WMP opens four connections to play a video -- one as wmp and three as nsplayer.

It's all forum talk, and I can't find an authoritative source so far.

I add specific versions of both nsplayer and wmplayer and most of them I get only a single hit from. I've seen nothing in my logs to suggest any sort of relationship between them. This applies roughly between versions 7-10.

Each of these has a single hit and no same version of the parallel ua.

ns 7.0.0.1956
wmp 9.00.00.3075
wmp 9.00.00.2980

NSPlayer = Net Show Player

I'm not familiar with that app however and I'm not sure if it's the same thing as wmp...if so why have it released alongside wmp...or is it an echanced version?

I've always assumed that NSPlayer was WMP. In my UA strings with NSPlayer, I often see "WMFSDK/9.0" or "WMFSDK/10.0" which I assumed was a Windows SDK marker.

I am not familiar with those programs myself but I have seen those strings as well.
