Many Windows 10 & 11 users who got updated to the latest version in windows 10 and windows 11 are facing a common bug. When they right click on any music album and click on find album info option, it goes to a new url musicmatch-ssl.xboxlive.com showing most of time wrong album info. Now, all of them want the older link fai.music.metaservices.microsoft.com which displayed correct info. If you also happen to face this error, try the steps given below to fix this error.
Step 1 – Search regedit in windows search
Step 2 – Browse to the following location in the registry editor.
Step 3 – locate PREFERREDMETADATAPROVIDER key in the right side
Step 4 – Right click on PREFERREDMETADATAPROVIDER and choose modify.
Step 5 – Clear the value data field, delete pmpMusicMatch value and click OK.
Step 6 – Close the registry editor and reboot your computer.
Now, again choose find album info and check again. It will show the old fai.music.metaservices.microsoft.com , providing correct album info.

This info is a waste of time, Microsoft pulled the plug on “fai.music.metaservices.microsoft.com” before this article was written. There is now no reliable musin album metadata service.
I tried it too – didn’t work.
I did that and still no joy…
Hi I have Windows 7 . I can’t find anything remotely similar in my registry. And i’ve tried the HOSTS file change to no avail. Can you possibly help me with this same problem? Thank you
I followed this procedure but still am directed to musicmatch-ssl.xboxlive.com. I checked the PREFERREDMETADATAPROVIDER field after reboot and the field is still blank (pmpMusicMatch is gone). How can I get directed to fai.music.metaservices.microsoft.com? Should I put fai.music.metaservices.microsoft.com in the PREFERREDMETADATAPROVIDER field?
