Since I got sound to work on this computer I have had a problem with WMP. In a nutshell it sounds as though a CD is skipping, and occasionally 1-2 seconds of silence before the track resumes, and this happens with mp3 and flac files, including stuff I have ripped from my own CDs. Initially I thought it was a sound card problem and the shop replaced the sound card with a more recent version of the same card. The problem continued. Exasperated I tried using VLC and since using VLC have not had a problem with the skipping sound. Is there a known issue with WMP in Win 7? How can I get a new copy of the player? Alternatively how can I make VLC the default player?
