Here’s how to play Windows Media Player in the new Windows 10 media player

Windows 10 is the latest major release of Microsoft’s operating system, but it doesn’t have a media player yet.

Luckily, the new Media Player for Windows 10 brings that to the fore.

You can start playing media files on your PC, but you’ll need to set up a media server to make sure that files are played correctly.

And the Media Server will need to be running on the computer that hosts the Windows 10 PC. 

In the previous article, we covered how to set your media server up for Windows Media, and now we’ll show you how to make use of the Windows Media Server feature.

In this article, I’ll show how to install a Windows Media player on your Windows 10 machine.

We’ll be using the media server version of Windows 10, and it’ll run the Windows media player in a virtual machine running on Windows 10. 

The first step to installing the Windows player is to open up the Windows registry. 

This is the place where Windows 10 allows you to make changes to your registry.

If you’ve never done this before, be sure to go to the Start menu and type regedit. 

You’ll find this registry key called hsuser.

In our case, we’ll be creating a new user account called jhjmedia. 

After you’re done with that, go ahead and create a new DWORD value called hsauser.

You’ll need this DWORD to make a change to the registry.

After you do this, press Enter. 

Once the new DWOREntity has been created, you can navigate to it by clicking on the Start button. 

Then, click on Start. 

When the registry is opened, you’ll see a new tab called Media. 

Now, you should see the following: If you’ve been following along, you probably already know that you can make changes in the registry by clicking the Edit button in the top right of the window. 

But there’s one important thing that you need to do in this window.

If you click Edit, you won’t see the new Registry key that we created.

Instead, the registry will display the following dialog: Now that we have a new registry key, you will need it to edit the values that you created.

To do that, click the Edit tab at the bottom of the Registry Editor window, and then type hsa. 

Press Enter, and you’ll be taken to the next page: Press the + sign in the upper right corner of the dialog box. 

If this is your first time entering the Registry, you’re going to be prompted for a name for your registry key. 

Click the name that you have chosen and then click OK. 

We now have a Registry key called jahjmedia, which will be added to our registry.

Now, we’re going as a new administrator, and we’re all set to move forward.

Next, let’s create a virtual hard drive to store all our media files. 

To create a Virtual Hard Drive, go to File Explorer and then choose New > New Virtual Hard Disk. 

Next, select the Hard Disk drive that you just created, and click Next.

You should see a window with the name of your new Virtual Hard Drives. 

Go ahead and click Create. 

Make sure that the Create Virtual Hard drive option is selected and that you choose the appropriate type of hard drive. 

Select the hard drive that will be formatted as a NTFS volume, and press Next. 

Choose a drive letter for the hard disk, and confirm by clicking OK.

 You can now go ahead, click Next, and the next window will appear. 

Enter the following information: You can choose to format the hard drives as an SSD or a SATA drive. 

 Choose whether or not to use a RAID-5 or RAID-0 configuration. 

For more information, see this article on how to format a hard drive in Windows. 

At this point, the hard disks are formatted and you’re ready to install Windows Media.

To install the Windows Player, click OK to complete the installation process. 

That’s it! 

When you reboot your PC after installing Windows Media on the new Virtual hard drive, you shouldn’t see a message asking you to reboot your system.

Instead you’ll get a message saying that you’ve successfully installed the media player on the Windows PC.

Hopefully, you’ve now installed a Windows media client on your machine. 

Note: You can’t play media files from Windows 10’s Media Server if you’re using a USB flash drive, because it doesn´t have a hard disk drive.

You need to install the Media Player on a hard-drive.
