    Windows Media Player crashes when closed


    Hello,

    Since the half of august I noticed there are APPCRASH events in the Reliability History every time I close Windows Media Player. I don't notice the crash of the program itself, but I can see the cursor showing a loading icon when closing the program. It even happens if WMP doesn't contain a music library.

    Here's the log (Dutch):
    Naam van probleemgebeurtenis: APPCRASH
    Naam van de toepassing: wmplayer.exe
    Versie van toepassing: 12.0.17134.1
    Tijdstempel van toepassing: 854a1b2d
    Naam van foutmodule: combase.dll
    Versie van foutmodule: 10.0.17134.112
    Tijdstempel van foutmodule: cdc43ef4
    Uitzonderingscode: c0000005
    Uitzonderingsmarge: 000f19ef
    Versie van besturingssysteem: 10.0.17134.2.0.0.256.48
    Landinstelling-id: 1043
    Aanvullende informatie 1: f07b
    Aanvullende informatie 2: f07ba5a3b1acaf0f571ec0abb76b0d76
    Aanvullende informatie 3: 2fc0
    Aanvullende informatie 4: 2fc08081dc2041665a1ee531e6562af0
    Extra informatie over het probleem
    Bucket-id: 50f73f2ab19318a86442962490a4081b (1459894313011120155)
    I have tried the following but none of them fixed the issue:
    - Run the Troubleshooter of Windows Media Player Settings and Windows Media Player library
    - Delete the Media Player cache folder in %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft- Delete cache and history files in the WMP settings- Run sfc /scannow and DISM commands; they didn't show any integrity violations or corruption
    - Disabling and enabling WMP (a reboot in between) in the Windows Features settings
    - Clean installed Windows 10 Pro 64x

    Since the crash happens at closing WMP, it might have something to do with cleaning temp or cache files but I'm not sure.
    I have attached a crashdump file.

    What might possibly be the cause here?


    :)

  2. New Windows Media Player Plugin for Firefox

    Anyone who uses Windows Vista and Mozilla Firefox may be pleased to hear that the Windows Media Player team has now released a plugin for Firefox that should allow the browser to play WMP content on websites. Here are the steps to get it working:
    • Installation of the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin may require administrative access to your PC. It is recommended that you close all other open browser windows before continuing with the installation.
    • Click the Install button to automatically download and install the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin.
    • Depending on your security settings, you may see a Security Warning dialog box. Click Install to install the plugin.
    There is a known issue if you are using Firefox version 2.0.0.3 on Windows Vista with the installer failing with error code -203. To work around this simply restart Firefox (you will get a notification that Windows Vista will be changing the Firefox compatibility settings) and then install again - the second time should succeed.

    The download is available here, and the new plugin works on all versions of Windows XP and Windows Vista (although it is mostly intended for Vista, as that currently has no WMP support in Firefox).
