    No answer except suggesting VLC player.
    VLC will play both audio and video files without worry of codecs issue.

    Adding..................... In Win 10, Windows Media Player can no longer play DVDs. VLC is the best alternative, in my opinion.

    Hi, PowerDVD works for me.. I browsed to an mp3 file and played it.

    Can you play music in general with anything?
    Or is your concern setting PowerDVD as your default player?

    Which version of PowerDVD are you using- is it the same on all- and if, for example, you're playing mp3's is there any difference in their association?

    PowerDVD15 isn't behaving properly on mine in various ways. PowerDVD 8 works. I really dislike PowerDVD as a huge bloated piece of clumsy software and couldn't find a use for it, but from the way the GUI behaves - and doesn't in some ways, to not being able to close it, to the way to access media, to it playing videos but not music, I've little patience with it.

So, I use a few music apps (Tunein, Audials, Third Party Pandora App). I notice that, when you minimize all of them in Windows 10, the music stops like a second later. How do you fix this? It didn't do this in Windows 8.1. I had no problem...
