VLC media player will play just about any audio or video file you throw at it. Version 3 supports hardware acceleration so that it SHOULD play even hi-res vids smoothly. But when you try to play a 4K (2160p) video, the playback stutters and is basically unwatchable. What gives??
It’s pretty handy!
But then when I want to watch that same file in VLC media player on my laptop, well… No subtitles!
What to do, what to do?
It turns out VLC has your subtitle needs covered, and you probably didn’t even know it…
Alternatively, you may get the same error when trying to load a particular program.
The short version is that WMVCore.dll is a key component of the Windows Media Library.
It’s a file that more or less allows playing media files.
Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to restore this missing file and get back on the road!
