Whether the user is advanced or beginner, he needs no introduction to the term or software Windows Media Player. Today’s kids who don’t even know how to put on their pants know well to play their favorite cartoon items and tune up to the media playlist. Whether its birthday, get-together at a marriage anniversary, professional bash, or search of eternal piece nothing conclude in absence of songs, tracks and videos. The application takes up multiple tasks; it plays favorites, organizes music, rips and burns CDs and helps to sync music and albums with smartphones and tablets to let generation-next go buzzing across-the-world.

However, issues can dash into the system anytime, therefore, knowing basics of PC repair job is must for one and all. There can be various types of issues related to Windows Media Player application. It can be with sound, video, or regarding ripping, burning, syncing or sharing feature. Streaming problem can happen with online content. The video files can crash or freeze. Sometimes, the system-screen may flash error related to “missing codecs” while trying to play, burn or sync particular files, which means that the files in question can’t be played as the WMP doesn’t bear the required codecs to decode those. It may also go unresponsive while a user tries to play a video file in Windows Vista, though it happens on temporary basis. What is more frustrating than to see newly purchased USB audio device unable to work with Windows Media Player. To fix computer problems especially sound and audio related, first and foremost thing to check is the cable connectivity, and audio settings through the volume control settings. Next, a user should navigate to the Device Manager section to see the status of the specific device drivers. One should have the administrator password to access this portal. Individual can see the status of the installed sound card under the “Sound, video and game controllers”. If a sound card is listed, that was installed then its “OK”. However, if no sound card is listed, then either the installed one is corrupted or system wants it. Replacement of sound card is out of the scope of this article, and one should follow the user-manual offered from the manufacturer end. Yellow marks against the sound driver, reflects the driver incompatibility, and to sort out that one can reinstall or update the driver. The update should be genuine, person getting it from Windows Update or Device driver manufacture sites are considered wise. Codecs related issues should be handled carefully, as a wrong or incompatible installation of codec pack can worsen the situation.

However, one should go for computer technical support offered by Microsoft or its certified partner, for resolving issues that are stubborn or critical in nature. Experts can remotely diagnose the system, WMP, Device Manager and other related areas to solve the problem. They can also check problems with the attached syncing devices, if required. At times, when there is a problem with online albums or videos then troubleshooting will incorporate browser and security firewall as well. Updating, upgrading or customizing browser and firewall settings can be the substantial steps to resolve it.
