    Media - WMP and Groove


    I drag 250Gb of music into the playlist and they bork. LOL. I realise that was probably a big ask but in these days of massive storage for cheap a media player should handle it. And don't get me started on why I have 22 albums listed with 1 song in each for a 22 track album.....
    Anyway I am lazy and do not want to do anything, I just want a media player that works OOB. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    :)

    WMP Problem


    It should be there. Let's try again, step by step.

    First, find out what version of Windows you have. Use the Winkey + R to bring up the 'Run' box, type Winver then click OK. You should see a version number, 1511, 1607 or 1703.

    If you have 1703, open Settings > Apps. For any other version open Settings > System.

    Click on Default in the list to the left (in 1703 it's called Default apps).

    Scroll down the list to find 'Video player'. This will probably say the default is 'Films & TV'. Whatever it says, click on it to bring up a list of possible apps to set as the default. You should see something like this with Windows Media Player in the 'Choose an application' list. Click on Windows Media Player and it will become the default for all types of video.

    Groove and WMP Issues

    I have some music files with .wmp extension. These music files were used to play in Windows media player. Now I am using Windows 10 OS which has Groove music player. When I try to play those music file in Groove they just skip displaying "This application
    doesn't have content usage rights" If I try playing those same music files in Media Player I am getting " WMP has encountered some problem playing this file" Can someone reolve and fix the problem please?
