WMP unable to play standalone AAC files on Win10
I've got a bunch of songs I've downloaded from YouTube. To save on processing power without loosing any audio fidelity I've demuxed the videos and saved them as standalone audio files. They used to play flawlessly on Windows 7 but since upgrading to Windows 10 I can't get them to play in Windows Media Player. For some reason instead of giving the standard error of the file being unsupported WMP acts like it's playing the file except that the seek bar sits at the left and never moves. The play button turns into a pause button and everything as if the file is playing.

MediaInfo on the files:

are you using a recent release of the codecs?
If so, press [Reset All] in both the 32bit and 64bit Settings Applications.
