Windows Media Player encountered an error when connecting to the server
Windows media player requires necessary audio and video codecs to play different types of media files. There may be two possible reasons of the error.
Reason one: Somehow the required media codecs in your system have been removed or damaged. If this is the case, then media player tries to connect to the internet to download codecs. So you have to reinstall them. You can install “K-lite mega codec pack” to restore the codecs.
Reason two: May be the media files that you have downloaded, they are Digital Rights Management (DRM) files. These types of files require authorization certificate to be played in media player. In this situation you need the authorization of the website from which you have downloaded the files.
