unrecoverable playback error: Unknown error code (0x8888001)

Has anyone else ever seen this message?  I have a new installation of V1.4.8 on a HP laptop, 64 bit, Windows 10 Pro, and have not been able to play anything.

Thanks.

Hi there,

Firstly try a Windows restart and see if that fixes it.

Otherwise you could try the advice in this thread. That is, check that the sound card output is set correctly in Windows sound device properties. (Start > Settings cog > System > Sound > Output device properties > Additional device properties > Advanced tab > set Default Format to the minimum)

Set foobar to the same Output device, or 'DS: Primary Sound Driver'. (Preferences > Playback > Output > Device)

Cheers

Thank you very much.   Your suggestions have worked for me.   Now, I can finally use the program.
