Please get dynamiclinkmediaserver under control. It hogs huge amounts of processor even when no Adobe apps are running. All I can do is to keep removing the dynamiclinkmediaserver folder from Application Support. But then it gets regenerated when I run Lightroom Classic CC

Kevan, 

What is your Operating System Version?

Can you give me figures on how much processor it is using - or even better a screen capture?

Mac OS 10.13.4
c.93% CPU — see attached screen grab

I have been using Lightroom Classic CC for several hours, and dynamiclinkmediaserver was not running. As soon as I quit Lightroom it starts to run! How can you explain that?

I have just received the most absurd email from Adobe:

"You contacted us on 5/17/2018 1:26 PM. We have resolved your Performance issue and are closing case number ADB-2175542-K6W5."

a) Nobody has resolved my issue
b) It is SO DIFFICULT to actually find the case in question
c) When I did finally discover how to find it, there was no way of commenting or reopening it.

Needless to say, I would still like feedback about my issue.

Thanks
