For some reason, some movies refuses to be launched with mc360 but works with the original skin.
I even tried to reset all xbmc parameters but I still have the same failure.

It's maybe a problem with xbmc, because when I change to 'List view', I have the same prob. with the original skin.

Thanx for your extraordinary work.

I've been looking around this bug and, it's seems that :

- with PM3, there's between 17-21 MB free before to lauch this movie
- with MC360, there's between 12-15 MB free ...

Maybe mplayer.dll is unable to play some kind of movies if there's not enough memory ....

more than likely the reason I suggest you turn off the background animation if you havn't allready and lower XBMC playback cache in settings

Thanx for your replay Jezz_X.

I've been doing a lot of testing.

First of all, i'm on 720p, that is consuming a lot of memory (abount 6-7 mb)
I've disabled all the unused "services" like animation, upnp, etc ... (execpt ftp)
I'm also using a less consuming memory that is 'List2' view.
Displaying movies thumbs seems to be the real problem.

Sometimes it's working, Sometimes not.

It's could be usefull to implement a memory reclaim before to launch the movies, but I supposes that it's a job for XBMC Team.

Chris.
