    Xbox Music Problem


    I just can't play any songs. Can download them and sync with other devices. Can't play them though. It's killing me.

    BUMP, problem still persists. Even installed the latest Music update but that didn't fix anything.

    what exactly are you trying to play?, are these mp3's?, do you have .mp3's associated with the correct programs so they will play? Can you play these files with any program?

    please give some more info

    I should have given more information.
    I am only trying to stream the songs. I have no songs on my laptop at the moment, the app works fine except for the streaming songs thing. Firstly, a drivers related message popped up, fixed it and now this.

    still not sure what you are doing, streaming songs from xbox to pc via smartglass app?

    make sure your anti-virus and firewall settings are blocking the stream I guess.

    I am using the Music App on my Windows 8 as you can see in the screenshot. When I'm on my xbox, I can use the app normally. However, when I try to use it on my laptop I get this error. It's the same process, I just can't play anything with this app on my laptop. I don't use an antivirus and I'm pretty sure the app is not blocked.

    Of course, I can sign into the app normally and even download information with it, for example, I made a playlist on my xbox, the windows app will sync with it.

    Hmm, from your screenshot it looks like you're trying to stream music, unless if you have the Halo 4 OST (the soundtrack is nice but not the best) in your Music library.

    I'm going to assume you've already tried looking up the error code?

    Neil Davidge has done an amazing job with the OST, the results speak for themselves. First video game soundtrack to ever enter in the top 50 chart. My laptop is quite clean, it has no music, videos or pictures. So yea, I am trying to stream music.

    I already looked up the error but the closest result I could get was about making a registry key which would help the system recognize my sound card. Problem is I don't have a sound card so naturally, nothing changed.

    I liked it, but I'm more inclined to the classic soundtracks. I really liked ODST's OST as that really had more of an emotional feel to it as the game itself really showed a straight up struggle. Halo 4, I'd need to play it to understand it as the soundtrack wasn't too stellar. They went with a totally different sound and timber to it that probably needs in-game experiencing.

    But anyways, your sound works find on your laptop? This is weird. Can you try plugging in headphones and trying it again?
