woke up and server was down, restarted it and these shenanigans happened (again I should say).
I experienced this problem when I installed Win10N and couldn’t get Roon to work, a few years ago I tried to get support about it but no cigar. after hours trying I went with the regular Win10 and no problems till today.
why is this happening out of the blue? at least RopieeeXL working with airplay as it is supposed to shout out to @spockfish
We have some information about codec issues here in our KB. These types of errors can occur if the codecs that Roon requires are not found on the Core machine. Generally, for Windows, these codecs should already be installed.
If you haven’t already, try giving the Core machine a reboot and check to see if there are any updates. If you’re still having issues, follow the instructions in the link above to make sure that the media packs are properly installed.
Roon Server was working like it should less than 5 hours ago, how is it possible those codecs can’t be found and when I try to reinstall It won’t work anymore.
without these codecs Roon doesn’t work or open.
have done this already. no cigar
from my experience only solution is reinstall windows… kinda fed up with this! this is a problem for many years and known for at least as many! would have expected that there would be a better solution after this time.
thanks Mike, latest version 1903 was released in may 2019 if im correct.
can’t find out if any small updates have been installed, i always update manually, my server can’t restart on its own and there have been no power outages.
im disappointed by Roon support, this has been a long problem and still no solution to the codec issue. next to that if I would like to troubleshoot and tinker about these problems and more I would use a free program like plex or Volumio.
right now I have to invest a lot more of my precious time into something that just has to work
Hi Dylan, this is a strange situation. as you can see Win10N pro has been installed, but I never installed Win10N pro because it doesn’t/ I couldn’t get it to work with those bloody codecs.
in the end I gave up and installed regular non N win10.
