WMP 6.4 does have that option under "view-options" player tab right bottom
of window,
and it does indeed give out what seems to be a random number every time.
For once that MS has done something well and is not creating some form of a
problem ....
I have tested this under 98 and 2K now and both behave the exact same even
with different versions of IE (5.0 and 5.50).
