Does the Glasswire Service control Classic Media Player?


If i watch a video with Classic Media Player without internet, “Glasswire Service Controll” uses CPU usage at constant 1,9 %. (I dont want to consume more energy in my battery life)
Is it normal?

Classic media player does not run, then “Glasswire Service Controll” runs less than 0,1 %.

Can you try to run Classic Media Player and have same issue?

Sry for my bad English.

OS: Windows 10 64 bit
Antivirus: Windows Defender
CPU: Intel i7 6700 HQ 2,60 GHz
My windows system is healthy



I am unfamiliar with that software. Does it use Bittorrent or something like that to play videos? GlassWire has to keep up with your hosts, so if it’s Bittorrent then it will use more CPU.


I have no bittorrent .
I watched offline video, my wifi was disabled.

Media player started and no video, Glasswire Control Service is less than 0,3 %.

If a video is running:


Interesting. Does the app use some kind of local connection on your PC, or something on the LAN by chance?

If you disable GlassWire’s webcam/mic monitoring does it help?


I dont believe the app uses local connection. My Laptop has no LAN.

I didn’t change setting, that is default !?


Same problem with Movie&TV (Media player is default in windows 10)


FYI, the GlassWire Control Service uses CPU when I start any program even if that program is not network aware/enabled.

The CPU usage is probably initiated from the Windows Firewall API. Your developer could confirm this by seeing what is happening.


Thanks for your reports. We’ll try to improve this with GlassWire 2.0.
