Video files crash the system
Posted on 1999-01-29
Anytime I try to open a video file on my computer (.mpg, .avi, etc.) the system crashes completely. Not like it gives a GPF, or Blue Screen of Death, it acts like loading the video file pressed the reset button. The system is a P200, 32 meg Ram, Windows 98 with all the patches installed. I have tried using Windows Media Player, Active Movie Player, Xing Mpeg Player, Apple's Quicktime Player, etc. - Nothing. The first three load, but when I try to open a file, the system resets. Quicktime resets before it even finishes loading.
