Have you tried disabling audio enhancements in Control Panel? See the instructions at windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/…

comment Every 10 mins: YouTube sound goes down and Windows Media Player stops
Weird that Google Chrome is causing this. Simply disabling the startup item might be enough to fix the issue. If not, uninstall or update Chrome.

comment Every 10 mins: YouTube sound goes down and Windows Media Player stops
Clean Boot definitely isn't a solution, it's just a troubleshooting aid. See How to determine what is causing the problem by performing a clean boot in the linked article to selectively disable services and startup items and narrow it down to a single culprit. Then please report back the culprit service or startup item here.

If you boot Windows in Clean Boot mode, does that help?

comment RPC server unavailable while playing videos in Windows media player
What's the file type of the video clips that you're trying to play? Do you have any codec packs installed?

comment Scripting and Windows Media Player window
Yes, the WMPlayer.OCX object is for scripting WMP. What's the output of your script and where exactly is it failing?

comment Music album art not showing up: How to reset?
What did you use to add the album art? What's the file type of your music files? Which version of Windows are you running?

comment WMP 12.0 adds duplicate entries for same file mapped network drive
Rebuilding the library should start as soon as WMP is started again. To make DLNA work again, you should restart the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service.

comment Fade in/out Windows Media Player when pressing play/pause button
Winamp does this (it's even enabled by default IIRC). But there's no way to have the same in WMP, unfortunately.

comment How to keep album art same in Windows Media Player
Are the music files for each album located in a separate folder on the file system?

comment Update Microsoft DTV-DVD Video Decoder
Yes, that's definitely possible, if some other application installed their own version of msmpeg2vdec.dll, perhaps a codec pack or even malware.

comment Update Microsoft DTV-DVD Video Decoder
I don't think that 12.0.9200.16426 is a valid version number for msmpeg2vdec.dll, as that's a WMP version number and this file isn't part of WMP but of the Windows installation (the 6.1 version correctly stands for Windows 7). I also can't find any results for the 12.0.* version on support.microsoft.com, which should have a listing of all system file versions.

comment How to disable WMP media switching on CD insert?
Apologies, I wasn't aware that the registry change didn't have any effect (it probably did though for earlier versions of WMP). Thanks for reporting back.

comment Windows Media Center/Windows Media Player CPU usage high for some users, others are fine
That doesn't necessarily mean that the library can't be corrupted and requires a reset. So please try resetting it anyway (and also answer my comment above).
