This problem may occur following an incorrect device shutdown or restart or an application crash while we are playing a media file.|
From now on, every time we want to play a video we will get the error giving equal to the player we use, Windows Media, VLC, Quiktime ....
If we open Youtube, we will see the video, but without audio, so the problem is in the audio.
To solve this, we will simply right-click on the speaker that appears below in the taskbar and there we will go to playback devices. There we will double click on loudspeakers, select the advanced options and in the drop down we choose any other option from the list, for example CD quality; We give you to try and listen to the sample sound. This will already indicate to us that it has been unblocked, that is to say, that we return to have audio.
Now we only have to re-select the previous choice of audio quality we had. Once done press the apply button and we will have solved the problem.
