    I've been having severe movie problems on my machine since the beginning (even with v1.09) - stuttering and even crashes. But it was not consistent, every once in a while the movies would play smoothly...Recently I noticed that if I loaded Internet Explorer prior to playing, then my movie problems were almost gone - if I reboot the machine and try to play again without loading IE first, then the problems come back.

    So if you are having movie problems, it might be worth it to try running IE before playing, and see if it makes a difference. Not sure why it does (different .dll being loaded into memory?), but it seems to help on my machine.

    Machine specs: 1.8 ghz Pentium IV, 512 MB RDRAM, 128 MB Geforce 5900XT. Windows XP, IE 6
