I was having the same issue. After trying permissions, uninstalling and re-intsalling, and everything else nothing worked.

I checked the processes on my Mac and opened the dynamiclinkmediaserver process and clicked on the "Open Files and Ports" section, and I saw that it was indicating that it's origin is "Applications/Adobe Photoshop CC 2018/Adobe Photoshop CC 2018.app/Contents/Required/DynamicLinkMediaServer/dynamiclinkmediaserver.app/Contents/MacOS/dynamiclinkmediaserver".

I opened a finder folder and explored all the way to the "MacOS" folder on the previous path and clicked the dynamiclinkmediaserver exec. It opened a window that stated there was an error reading a file in the following path: User(usually your name)/Library/Preferences/Adobe/dynamiclinkmediaserver/10.0.0/Trace Database.txt

When I opened such file with the text edit app I noticed it was blank, empty. Under the folder "dynamiclinkmediaserver" I saw another folder named 7.0.0 and it has a similar file named Trace Database.txt and it contains the following text:

IFDR      1       5

dynamiclinkmediaserver    1      5

processcoordination          1      5

I copied the same text to the .txt file in the 10.0.0 folder and....THE PROBLEM IS SOLVED.

I don't know if the same text would work, I would suggest to follow the same paths to see if the problem is the same, and see if you also have another folder like 7.0.0 whit a similar .txt file that you can copy, but this worked for me. Good luck

Unfortunately this did not solve the problem here.

I select File > Import > Video Frames to Layers

  • a dialog statig "Initializing Video Import" stops its progress bar in the middle for several minutes
  • a dialog appears, saying "Could not complete the Video Frames to Layers command because the DynamicLink Media Server is not available."

This problem occurred a few OS/PSD updates ago. for now Im running PSD 19.1.3 on Mac High Sierra 10.13.4

Perfeito!!! Seguindo a dica, executei o arquivo dynamiclinkmediaserver.exe que encontrei no diretório C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2022\Required\DynamicLinkMediaServer\dynamiclinkmediaserver.exe  ele apontou a falta do arquivo MSVCR110.dll que resolvi instalando o Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 que instalou o arquivo que faltava. Logo após o dynamic link funcionou normalmente. Espero que esta dica ajude também

Thanks for the help!!
