  1. Bluetooth Play/Pause not working


    I've had this issue for a while, and it's really annoying me. I use BlueTooth earbuds a lot on my computer, and would like to use the full remote on them. All the controls work fine, except the play/pause button. It doesn't work in any software other than WMP (Windows 7) and other software downloaded from the Windows Store seeming all designed for Windows 10. Hell, even FL Studio works with the pause play, but none of my music player. I mess around with my registry a lot, so it might be that I disabled something in there that ties in with media controls. Even the pause/play on my keyboard tends to stop working after maybe five minutes of music playback. Could someone give me advice on how to fix this so my play/pause works in, for example... MusicBee, or VLC media player classic​ (non windows store)?

    (side-note)
    I often have a lot of issues with the connection to my computer dropping randomly with internet and Bluetooth. Thought I would mention that in here too.

    :)

  3. windows 10 bluetooth issues

    I've been having problems with Bluetooth as well. I have two different headphones: a set of AUSDOM M04 headphones (my preferred headphones) and a set of LG HBS700 headphones. I've been able to pair both with Windows 10 (the AUSDOM headphones were previously paired
    with 8.1, the LG headphones were not) but the AUSDOM headphones have been behaving strangely. Sometimes the Play/Pause button will start music playing but will not pause the music. Other times the Play/Pause button will not start the music playing but will
    pause it. I just tried the LG headphones and they seem to work like they should but I prefer my AUSDOM headphones. What's the deal? Bluetooth worked near perfectly under Windows 8.1 but now it appears to be broken with Windows 10. Please fix this.
