    I just reinstalled my HTPC with win 7 and MP 1.15 and now I can't play DVD's.

    When starting to play a DVD I get to see the DVD for between 5 seconds to 2 minutes then it stops and MP go back to the home screen.

    I have tried with many different DVD's with the same result.
    If I exit MP and play the DVD's with Microsoft mediaplayer there are no problems at all, so I don't think it is at hardware problem

    I have attached a logfile and hope that someone can help me

    MP stops playing because audio devices are connected/disconnected:
    If you don't want this to happen, find out why your audio devices are connecting and reconnecting all the time.
    For example, maybe the ancient Realtek drivers (7/30/2013 14:16:46) you're currently using are not stable.
    ...or maybe you have a Bluetooth audio headset/device going in and out of range.

    Alternatively you could disable (untick) MP's "stop playback on removal of an audio renderer" option:

    That would be a workaround.
