Wmp12 constantly updating media library
If you are thinking that re-installing the media player will solve the issue, then you are completely mistaken as the error is not associated with the media player.The only solution to this problem is to rebuild the DRM (digital rights management) cache.By Andy Rathbone You can load Windows Media Player in Windows 10 by double-clicking its icon in the Start menu or taskbar, that strip along the desktop’s bottom edge.When you run Windows Media Player, the program automatically sorts through your computer’s stash of digital music, pictures, and videos, automatically cataloging everything it finds.When you clear this cache, the cache is automatically created on next start up but the problem arises because you have to re-acquire the licenses.If you are lucky enough to have a backup of your licenses in the media player, you can easily retrieve them and build your DRM cache again.Several cases have been reported till date about the unwanted crashes of this highly popular music player.We are going to explore a very similar case here: As soon as you open your Windows Media Player to play your audio/video files, it crashes immediately with the error message “Windows Media Player has stopped working.” Initially we thought that the problem is temporary and the player will work fine if we open it from other source.
You will have to closely analyze the error in the Application log before progressing to find a solution for your crash.
6: Reboot your windows operating system and most probably your Windows Media Player will stop crashing.
There might be a case that your Windows Media Player is not able to play a specific kind of audio/video file. The Wondershare Video converter Ultimate is one such file converter that can solve the problem of Windows Media Player crashes by converting the type of file.
Feel free to repeat the steps in this section to search for files whenever you want.
Windows Media Player ignores the files it has already cataloged and adds any new ones.
