Hum, removing and reinstalling Windows Media Player seems to have improved the sound quality for that device video playing and also some improvement in sounds elsewhere. Never could get the codecs to work properly.
There is still an equalizer in WMP and you can make good use of it.
Just seeing if anyone else has this issue. Trying to install 184.108.40.20601 and 220.127.116.1106 on several Windows 10 machines. The install occurs, but there is no speaker icon in the start up and there is no program in the control panel.
If I use 18.104.22.16896 those two things are there. Also I tried downloading the 64-bit from the Microsoft website and I keep getting an error. The 32-bit one however works.
Codec drivers most probably, do you have any sound ?
Thank you for the quick response CountMike. Yes, sound comes through. I was just wondering if anyone else has seen this as this is the first time for me and weird on different systems. But yes, sound is there and the driver information is correct.
Only reason I bring this up is that some of the systems are gaming systems which have 5.1 speakers. There are some older games that the only way to hear some of the talking in the game is by switching over to stereo and this was done by accessing the Realtek program by clicking the speaker icon in the startup.
Or maybe there is something I can do to resurrect that speaker icon? I have tried going in to the tray and setting it to "always", but it still does not show. 22.214.171.12496 works so no big deal, but just wondered.
Her are the two icons missing. The one in the control panel and the one in the startup. Usually the gamers double click the one in the tray and then change the speaker configuration from 5.1 to stereo and then launch their old games.
But the two pictures of the speaker and the program in the control panel if I install 126.96.36.19901 or 188.8.131.5206 they are not there to access.

New RealTek HD Audio Driver available in WU.
