    Everyone, and I mean everyone has issues with this app and for whatever reason this issue is not being addressed. No, you're drivers are up to date and fine. You do not need to make a new administrator account or mess around with Powershell trying to uninstall it then reinstall it. All these options are useless, Microsoft clearly messed something up in the coding and for some reason is refusing to fix it. Easy solution is... just use an alternative. My recommendation is VLC Player. Easy to use, versatile, one of the best apps out there period. Hope this helped For anyone struggling with the Windows Movies & TV App, particularly the black screen... :)
