Thread: Explorer Crash Whith .ogm Files

  1. #1
    I installed the KL Codec Pack 2.20 full version (tought it was time for an update, my mistake...)
    And I noticed a rather annoying problem.
    When opening a folder with several .ogm files in thumbnail view it will only load the thumbnail of the first movie and then Explorer.exe will crash:

    Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close.
    Error Signature:
    AppName: explorer.exe AppVer: 6.0.2800.1221 ModName: ole32.dll
    ModVer: 5.1.2600.1263 Offset: 0001213e

    My Google results only pointed to a problem with DivX 5.11 beta and Overlay Extended Mode being enabled, which is off by default.

    Hope somebody can help...

    Try the 2.24 test version.

    I'm only aware of the 2.21 test version.
    Or am I missing something completely?

    Well, I tried the 2.21 RC19 version. Same thing happens.

    I know the simple workaround is not using thumbnails (and indeed I normally don't), but it's still a rather annoying problem.

    2.24RC5 is the latest, see codec development.


    Possible fix:
    Found a horrible bug in Windows XP. Explorer has a feature where it scans any AVI files found in the current directory for metadata, such as height, width and length. The problem is that if there's a corrupt AVI - such as a partially downloaded file - Windows will attempt to scan the entire file by loading it into memory. You'll know this happens when you browse to a local directory and suddenly your machine grinds to a halt and starts swapping to disk like crazy (even with gobs of RAM). Luckily it's an easy fix. In the registry, navigate to the key:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.avi\shellex\PropertyHandler
    And delete the default value (which is one of those ungodly CLSID hex numbers).
    I don't have XP, so I can't test it.

    I already edited the property handler. And it's avi only.

    I must be blind or something cause I only found the 2.21 version on the testbuilds site.

    I'll have another look.

    edit: ok found it, but the links aren't working.

    Ok, I tried the 2.24 rc5 version and the same thing happens.

    I'll have a look at different Ogg Vorbis codecs and see what happens.
