For some reason I can not play music on any app. I will open up a player AND it will play maybe one song before cutting off and running through the track with zero sound. It's making me upset because music is like safety net for me. When I'm falling, I know my music seletion is there to catch me.
So far I've tried:
Uninstalling/reinstalling the drivers
Updating the damn drivers
Changing the wavelength
Installing/uninstalling various codec packs
I'll freely admit that I'm addicted to music. I'm not going to apologize for that addiction. It helps me think. It also calms me down so that my subroutines can makes sense of events and process.
Edit: Okay so as of 6:26 pm 5/23/2017, my music is working again. I don't know if it's because I grabbed LAME or if it's because I installed K-lite codec pack. I'm partially content, but I am worried about the future of WMP... it's been acting so slow. It's almost as if Microsoft is deliberately breaking their own products.
