Anyone got the same problem like me ?
YES! It hangs on several occasions, and it's buggy when doing chapter jumping etc. I had WinDVD 4 Plus, and everything was extremely stable and fast. Now I'm struggling with multiple hangups to watch a movie. That sucks.. Might have to go back to WinDVD 4.. Sigh..
BTW is the same one I had before the upgrade of my Terratec drivers.
Bad news even if u want to roll back to old windvd 4.
I did, but uninstall of Windvd platinum seems to damage something and windvd 4 didn't work anymore either.
So I take advantage of XP restore utility and I came back to the previous situation.
I made a fresh new installation of windvd 4.0 and seems a go.
I made a new restore point..and I tried "for fun" to reinstall Platinum again.
Even if Intervideo claims that the two version can lay together on the same pc when u install platinum windvd 4 doesn't start anymore. I found out that disabling Hardware acceleration on platinum solved my problems of jerky video and blocking when change chapter( I think..change type of audio out from ds to dd or dts..) and since IMHO the PQ of platinum without HA is slighty better than windvd 4 with HA on, I stopped my tests here.
Well, after getting confirmation here that it wasn't only me that was having these problems I went ahead and reinstalled WinDVD 4, now thinks are back to it's normal stable (fairly) self..
I still get the problem with WinDVD not being able to autoswitch between 16:9 and 4:3 sources (e.g. when jumping from a 4:3 menu, to a 16:9 movie). It kindof stays in 4:3 mode.. Anyone else experience this?
