    Windows 8.1

    As a further test, I turned on my Windows 7 computer and with Wifi, I brought up the video folder from the Windows 8.1 laptop. Running the MPUI on the Windows 7 computer, I played the videos from the video folder on the Windows 8.1 laptop. They played fine as I expected, so the problem is not in the stored video files, but the system on the Windows 8.1 laptop.

    Opened Control Panel, then Sound.
    This warning came up:
    Click image for larger version
    Clicked on 'Yes', and now media players work, including MPUI.

    Windows 8.1

    I read on another thread that Lenovo had advised people not to install Windows 8.1 until the drivers were available. Maybe this problem with the drivers for media players is what they were referring to.
    I don't think this problem can be described as 'resolved' until the latest drivers are available.
