    Why would you be playing YouTube video in a media player? They run perfectly in your browser. Do you mean downloaded ones?

    Windows 10 and windows 8.1

    I keep getting an error message from WMP 12 in Win 10 saying that the program has stropped responding, needs to close. Very frustrating. This is first time I have seen this --- after a clean install of Windows 10 RTM.
