Fix skipping in WMP 11 on Vista

Posted by onlydarksets on April 4, 2008

In the last 10 seconds of every track, WMP would freeze and then skip.  It didn’t happen in any other player, but I prefer WMP (I listen to a lot of DRM music via Zune Marketplace).  Well, turns out it’s a problem with the SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC.  If you disable the “enhancements”, the problem goes away.

  1. Right click on the volume icon in the system tray and select Playback Devices.image
  2. Select the SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC and click Properties.image
  3. Check the Disable all enhancements box.  It doesn’t matter if you don’t have any enhancements enabled – you still need to check the box.image

That should do it!
