Error: Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device
The Internet was not helpful in regards to this; this post did not work for me.
But after further digging myself I was able to determine that the issue is due to a 'Allow audio and video playback redirection' default policy being disabled on a server environment, the fix is to enable it.
Open start menu and search for 'Edit group policy' and navigate to 'Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Session Host > Device and Resources' and enable 'Allow audio and video playback redirection'.
