Thread: Computer Crashes When Watching Movies

  1. #1
    HI,

    The last 2 times I have tried to watch a movie on my computer the file will start out ok, then show signs of lag on voice and video and then crash my computer. I have Divx5.0 and WMP 6.4. I have installed the nemo codecs and was wondering what i may be missing? Also some movies play upside down in Divx?

    My Codecs: Divx 5.0 - I263_32.drv - iccvid.dll - indeo video 5.10 - ir32_32.dll - ir41_32.ax - msh 261.drv - msh 263.drv - M-MPEG-4 video codec - Msrle 32.dll - Msvidc 32.dll - Xvid MPEG 4 video codec.

    any help would be greatly appreciated...thanks

    Nemo has been very buggy for me. I suggest removing all of your current codecs and use K-Lite Codec Pack or Divx_Total_Pack exclusively. Either one will have just about all the codecs you'll ever need.

    So your preatty sure its the codec that causes it? Is there another player I might try?

    Zoomplayer, Media Player Classic, or BS player will suffice. If that fails, then try the codec change. BTW, BS Player is included with K-Lite codec.

    I have 256 MB myself and no problems here. But a slow PC can be a problem. You might also want to try VideoLan player. Many people report good playback on slower systems.

    there could be a lot of reasons for the crashing. it could be the fault of a codec or a player program... or your computer may have stability problems due to video card or sound card drivers, bad RAM or hard drive, a motherboard problem, etc.

    if there is an error message that occurs during the crash, it would be a good idea to write it down and look for advice specific to that error.
