New Windows Media Player 9 Update

Microsoft has issued a new knowledge base advisory in which the software company announces the availability of a fix for a "Slight Delay When Windows Media Player 9 Series Switches Files Streamed from a Windows Media Services 9 Series Server". The symptoms you may experience are: When you stream files from a Windows Media Services 9 Series server, you may notice a delay of five or six seconds when you switch between files.

This problem occurs because of the way the Windows Media Player 9 Series server submits the client rendering log to the Windows Media Services 9 Series server. When the server is set up to accept client rendering logs, an internal error may be incorrectly reported on the client when the client waits for a response from the server. If this behavior occurs, the client times out after a default period and then opens the next file. In this case, the server receives the correct log from the client.

This patch updates file Wmnetmgr.dll to version 9.0.0.3070.
