Div X player crashes pro tools?

Not sure about this 100%.. but after i installed it.. I started to get my computer turn itself off while i was using pro tools.

I then uninstalled it and I haven't had any more crashes so far...


Im no expert but im guessing that this codec is running in the back ground on the computer? and causing PT to crash?

DivX

Maybe someone else can test it out.....

Just use VLC... Easy on the cpu, it won't crash PT and plays just about any file format known to mankind. Divx player is exactly the kind of bloatware you don't want to infect your computer with.

Ok thank you...

but it was a case of as soon as i post this thread i had another crash...

I put my computer down to using 3 cores instead of 4 and it started to work alot better...

much smoother operation. I had a session with rewire and reason open and i was using about 30% cpu..

then it crashed.

It went about 30-40 min..


I can only assume that it must be my chip set.. Im using an AMD quad..

I suppose AMD must be a problem.


I almost had it working tho..... thats a shame...
