Default Re: Xv not working anymore after viewing many videos

Thanks to all who have answered.

My thoughts also go to some bug in the driver like some ressource leaking, and when this ressource lacks the video doesn't play anymore.
I rebooted my box a week ago and the problem is not showing for the moment, having played about 30 videos.

About win32 codecs : i don't use them, all my videos are played by the ffmpeg codec (mostly xvid). And i wonder how a codec problem could hurt the system so bad to ned reloading the nvidia module.

Are there any nVidia staff member watching/answering in these forums ?
If it's a driver bug, maybe i could help digging it the next time it shows.
I did not try reproducing it manually, but i think it's possible since it always happens after a number of use.
