Every once in a while I'll randomly get a pop up telling me that "DCMProvider has stopped working." Anyone know what this app is/does and should I be concerned that it keeps crashing? It doesn't seem to have any negative effects so far. Google has not yielded any results.

I receive the same message quite regularly since upgrading to the S5: "Unfortunately DCMprovider has stopped". I've tried everything suggested on this thread so far but I still get the message.
I used Smart Switch Mobile to transfer apps/files from my S3. Could it be that something needs to be uninstalled and reinstalled? Any help would be greatly appreciated...

I just tried this today and it works so far.
Settings - Apps - All - DCMprovider - Force Close then Clear Data
I found a video on youtube, but apparently i'm not able to post links on here yet. Hope it works for you all. Took me 4 months to get it off my screen lol.

I had this problem on my Samsung Galaxy S5 running Android 6.0.1
Samsung's response, through your service chat was as follows:
"Especially when multiple applications are downloaded mismatches may occur in the internal memory of the device.
I recommend restarting your device in "Safe Mode".
In Safe Mode will be available only applications that are preinstalled at the factory. In this way it is possible to check the correct operation of the device. "
It is a test mode - error until check which application causes the problem. It is too slow.
Finally we discovered that my particular problem was due to a duplication icon gallery at the main desk of my mobile.
Force stop did not solve my problem.
The conclusion is that the error is caused by either an external application, or misuse of the default applications.
Make backup and restore factory settings should always work if you do not you detect your particular problem.

It's hard to find anything about it, but from what I can gather, it has to do with wi-fi. I found this little nugget in a firmware FAQ from Actiontec, which makes Screenbeam, a wireless display:
(Q) What is DCM?(A) DCM stands for Different Channel Mode. DCM is a function of the wireless network adapter and its driver. It enables the system's wireless adapter to simultaneously operate multiple connections on different wireless channels, and supports applications such as Wi-Fi infrastructure and Wi-Fi Direct.
However, this doesn't mean that I know for sure why DCM Provider is stopping. I'd suggest a cache partition wipe to start with, which won't erase any personal data: https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-28492
