RE: mfpmp.exe stopped working
That is the Media Foundation Protected Pipeline EXE, basically it's a
suplment to Directshow and DirectX with DRM, it seems more than one person
have issues, especially when using WMP.
Microsoft Media Foundation is a new COM-based multimedia framework pipeline
and infrastructure platform for digital media in Microsoft Windows. It is the
intended replacement for Microsoft DirectShow, Windows Media SDK, DirectX
Media Objects (DMOs) and all other legacy multimedia APIs such as Audio
Compression Manager (ACM) and Video for Windows (VfW). The existing
DirectShow technology is intended to be replaced by Media Foundation
step-by-step, starting with a few features. For some time there will be a
co-existence of Media Foundation and DirectShow. Media Foundation will not be
available for previous Windows versions, including Windows XP.
The first release, present in Windows Vista, focusses on audio and video
playback quality, high-definition content (i.e. HDTV), content protection and
a more unified approach for digital data access control for digital rights
management (DRM) and its interoperability.
I wish I had a solution, but can't find one except to delete or rename the
file, that seems a bit rash to me.
