Could be doing a whole number of things m8.

Getting media info is one, manipulating u`r library and it`s stats (particularly if u got a large one), badly written visual effect (especially downloaded ones), or maybe a codec that not standard to windows (from a pack or summit).

I tend to find it starts up, messes around a whole lot, then settles down. During seeking it can repeat this, which could be down to drive access or similar.

Right, run one of your media players and then use this program at the same time.

It may show some more detail into what is actually taking up your CPU.

This is the line that stands out for me:

mfpmp.exe 6032 2.59 Media Foundation Protected Pipeline EXE Microsoft Corporation

Quote:

I can also confirm that even for videos of much lower resolution, “Media Foundation Protected Pipeline EXE” gets starten when I open them and uses 100% CPU at the beginning and around 10-20% CPU during playback. In addition, it takes almost 45 seconds before Media Player actually starts playing the video after opening it.

Video and audio playback seems to use much more resources in Vista, and you even get freezes and gaps in the audio.

On that very same PC, in XP, everything worked much faster.
Source

One of the sources that came up when I queried what the heck it was. They keep reverting back to the same factors as u`r outlining in u`r op.

I`m not remembering what the footprint of mp is under XP. But if u feel this may have something to do with the large cpu charge u keep getting, u should have the same experience as this poster.

EDIT: Well there we are, on meh work pc running something that looks like XPSP2, MediaPlayer is fluctuating between 0 and 1 %.
