Hello all, I have a small problem - Every time I use Windows Media Player, and play a specific song, the song will cut out.
I thought it may have been a broken mp3, so I open it in VLC or another media player, and the song runs fine, from start to finish.

Another thing I thought may have been the problem were my drivers;
I have a USB headset, tried the song on that, It still cut out.
I then tried to play it on my speakers from my sound card, It still cuts out.

I'm assuming this would rule out driver fault as it's not working on two drivers that work consistently on other media players.
I've asked my friends if they're having this problem, and they said no. They're fine.

For example, on 00:21 on "That's what you get" by Paramore, the sound will cut out, EVERY TIME. It doesn't cut out on VLC player.
on 00:20 on "Woodcat" by Tunng, it will cut out, EVERY TIME. It doesn't cut out on VLC player.

I've tried playing the song with all enhancements on, it doesn't work, and i've tried it with all enhancements off, it doesn't work, i've also tried playing the song with every combination possible, and it still doesn't work.

Does anyone know what the problem is?

use VLC and enjoy the music, there are a ton of drivers for different media, you can spend a lot of time trying to find the necessary drivers, I use VLC and WinAmp, I don't use WMP for anything
