Let's talk about microsoft and their stupid mfpmp.exe that is blocking my external subtitles, stopping me from watching TV online with windows media player and so on. If I want to watch a movie, every time I have to rename mfpmp.exe. Is there any solution to this problem? Lots of people complain about Media Foundation Protected Pipeline (mfpmp) but microsoft don't care at all. If they think that this is the way to stop piracy, they are mistaken. Sometimes it's sucking too much resources.
