    Hi friend,

    Windows media player interacts with many system components, including hardware drivers, audio, video codecs, and Directshow filters.

    It is possible that the player is encountering problems because of a faulty or incompatible component from a software provider other that microsoft.

    Here are the steps that you need to follow in order to run your windows media player without any problems:-

    1. Use caution when installing codecs, some free codec packs available on the internet that claim to include codecs from a wide variety of companies or organizations.

    2. Incompatability may lead you to system corruption, and it would be difficult to diagnose and troubleshoot playback issues.

    3. Do install the codecs, filters, or plug-ins from trusted, authorized sources, such as website of the official supplier.

    Hope i have helped you in getting relevant information.

    All the best

    THanking you...

    Possibilities are many why your Media Player is getting stuck.

    It may happen because of virus infection.

    It may happen because of the internal corruption of the player.

    It may happen due to some add-on program which is incompatible to the Media Player.

    The music files may have generated problems within themselves.

    Take necessary action and it will be fine,
