Do I need to upload any dumps or anything? I have tried all the different sound output plugins, crashes as soon as I play a file.

If you've posted this a few minutes after experiencing the crashes then a quick workaround should be to disable the library history play tracking (preferences -> media library -> history -> top option).

Oddly enough I spent a large part of the previous week re-working the history tracking to resolve odd issues it's been having though I was hoping to wait another week or 2 before I push out an update (I've not yet updated to the newer Win10 revision to be able to self test it yet).

Stellar service Dr.O!
I imagine all the crashes I was having today were sending you reports huh?

Hi PimpUigi,

Check the selected output device for the output plug-in you're using. I updated to Windows 10 2004 on May 31 and had the same issue until I checked the output device and saw it had been changed to Primary Sound Driver instead of the device I need to use on my system. Major Windows 10 updates like 2004 always changes the selected output device on my system for some unknown reason.

Tbh I think it's mostly unfortunate timing as the history crash has been cropping up for a number of others but some setups have shown a spike in it across a number of output plug-ins being used. Though is a reasonable thing to check after a Windows update as some drivers seem to be re-installed as part of the process whilst others don't (never seen it happen directly on my setups but have seen it occur on others).
