Playback & MP3 Player sync issues
For some users, the Napster PC client may also crash when they try to download a track.
This issue occurs because Microsoft removed the support for WMDRM tracks and offline playback due to which tracks downloaded from Napster will not be able to renew the license. Device sync would also fail due to this recent Change and we will no longer support this functionality.
Users who have Napster V6 PC Client installed will still be able to use the application and other features will still be available except download content for playback and for transfer tracks to devices. License for downloaded tracks will expire and the playback will switch to stream only.
