Media Player Crash Playing mov File

Description

Whike trying to play mov type video file by double clicking on it, I got this crash as Media Player opened. I can play the same file with no problem using VLC. I can even play another mov file by double clicking without Media player crashing. The other file is pure video with no audio. I will have to do some more testing with other mov files, some without audio to see if this is related to Media Player crashing. So the way to maybe reproduce the crash is: 1) Double click on a mov type video file that also includes audio. The expected result is that both the Video and audio track should play with no crash. I was testing using hrev23925 At the moment I am limited in my testing because I will have to download some mov files from the internet and my bandwidth is limited to dialup speeds until the 19th this month.

I managed to find a few more mov files and two of them had no audio tracks. All the new files that had audio crashed it and all the files with no audio did not cause a crash. One of them would not play but did not cause a crash. So I would say that it is mov files that have video and audio that crash Media Player and those with only video do not crash it

Any chance you can put links to the files you are trying to play?

I did the mov and mp4 reader code and the crash is occuring in the mov reader or it is doing something wrong.

I did the mov and mp4 reader code and the crash is occuring in the mov reader or it is doing something wrong.

I tried to upload links as atachments from a shared folder I created on my computer but the links were uploading the whole files. That is tens of Mbs. How can I put these links? If I try and link from the original website that I downloaded from, they are gone. I suppose I could find newer mov files to link from. If I link files directly from my systen (Ubuntu 8.04), is it possible?

You are welcome to e-mail 1 file to me at dlmcpaul AT gmail.com if you have the upload capacity

Applied a fix in hrev25444

metadata size was not being set, causing random data to be passed.
