I am having exactly the same problem. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling , still no cigar.
my bug is back also with the original message, very frustrating
I'm having the same problems. On my Macbook air and on my Imac.
I reinstalled LR Classic CC.
I've updated my IOS to 10.13.2.
And now my ideas have dried. Who has the answer ?
I need help for this topic, I need to build a slide for my client from my images
Please let me know, Thanks
I have the same problem. LR Classic CC, MacOS 10.12.6. I have reinstalled LR several times and rebooted the computer. I have found that LR logs a security error at the time it tries to open the DLS.

Sorry about the columns.
still the same bug and you Guys ?
I also have still the same bug ...
I have a similar problem when I play a slideshow on Lightroom Classic CC using my MacBook Pro; if I close the program, re-launch, the slideshow plays; but then it may stop, and when I try to play it again I get the "Dynamic Link Media Server failed to launch" message; I have re-installed the program several times, and used the cleaning tool, but it still happens; it is quite an annoyance because I use this feature almost daily.
I have a solution after a chat with Adobe. I made another account as Administrator en LR works perfect on that account. Not the most brilliant solution but it works.
The solution below worked for me.
I am running Lightroom Classic CC (latest version) on my Macbook Air
I had the same behaviour. A slideshow would either stall on preparing the preview or I would get the Dynamic Link Media Server not working message. I had earlier installed the new Lightroom CC as a test. I uninstalled Lightroom CC, restarted Lightroom Classic CC and the slideshow built and ran perfectly.
Update: I thought I had solved the problem but the next run, I got the DLMS error message again.
Update2: I restarted Lightroom holding down OPTION-SHIFT and reset the LR preferences.
I have run several slideshows with no issues if I keep Zoom to Fit Frame unchecked.
If I check Zoom to Fit Frame Lightroom stalls building the Previews.
However at least for the last half-hour I haven't had any Dynamic Link Media Server messages.
Same problem here. Slideshow in LR Classic and export as Video fail. I started calling Adobe Support on Jan 4th 2021 and have made no progress after about 12 calls. Each call ended with a sincere promise that I will be contacted and a solution would be implemented. I am sitting at my desk waiting for a call right now that was scheduled and confirmed and so far has not happened....again.
Has anyone any idea, even on a high level, about what could have happened to Lightroom Classic regarding: 1- create a slideshow and 2-export a slideshow as a video? I used the slideshow module and video option for years and now it will not work on either my desktop or my laptop.
One comment I heard was that this problem typically happens when two apps are supposed to be linked but one or the other is not a matching version and therefore not compatible. Is it some lind of media player app that is not compatible? I did a De-Install and Re-install of LR Classic on my laptop to get a fresh version but it didn't solve the problem.
Two mysteries 1-what is broken and 2-why in the world can't Adobe fix it?
