Wierd Problem on Windows 2000:
When I play a Video using VLC (Maybe others too ?) on this Computer, sound stops playing in the middle of the Video at an apperantly random point.
Sound works fine over a long period of time when playing music (winamp) BUT when the sound stopping problem has accoured once,
sound only works again after the computer is restarted (All sound, including music playback).
I wasn't sure about the category, but it's not a problem with the speakers (Why would they work again when the computer restarts ? + multiple ones were tried) so it's probably a software problem, thats why I posted the Question here. It could also be a problem with the soundcard (on board), but that sounds unlikely to me, since it doesn't accour when music is playing with winamp. Going to be trying a bootable linux distribution (MoviX) probably tommorow, but I haven't had the time yet.
Hope someone knows the problem and can help ! :)
