Hope the following message help.
Crashes when opening an MPEG file are usually caused by a conflict
between your PC's video display system and the XingMPEG Players video
acceleration methods. The most common conflicts are:
- Your video board has insufficient memory to handle video acceleration
at certain display settings; try reducing your display drivers color
depth and resolution.
- Your video display system does not support Direct Draw overlay surfaces;
make sure you have the latest display drivers for your video display
system (contact the vendor of your display system).
Disabling the XingMPEG Drivers "Use Video Acceleration" feature should
elliminate the problem until you can determine the ultimate cause. To
disable this feature without opening an MPEG file: edit the xmvideo.ini
file located in your XingMPEG Player directory; find the line that
indicates "HWAccell=1" and change this line to "HWAccell=0".
IMPORTANT NOTE: We are preparing to release an update to the
XingMPEG Player 2.x that elliminates the crash on systems that
do not support Direct Draw Overlay surfaces. This update should
be available by week's end through the regular channels:
