aziz posted a topic in Windows Media CenterHi, I have not been on the community for a while, which generally means I am happy with my system, and busy watching movies (as was designed)... However, I have always had this problem with playing Dolby Digital audio movies.. it just crashes my entire WMC... it does a complete restart (so, maybe you can call it graceful crash). Was not a big problem in the past as majority of movies are 2 track AAC... but recently, all my movies are in Dolby Digital, which is a Problem... Initially, (1 year ago), i though it must be codec problem, and i played with that, and asked everyone to help, including Shark007, whom codec package i am using, with no success... I was experimenting yesterday, and i decided to try to "switch off" the new look player on Emby, i.e. use the default WMC player interface, and guess what... the crashes stopped... So, it appears that the Emby interface player has a bug when playing Dolby Digital Audio... here is how to recreate this problem. play a Dolby digital 5.1 movie, and it will work fine initially, but if you try to skip forward using chapter or even just skip button, initially, it will slow the video down, and sometime (1 out 5 times) it will crash the entire WMC, and it will restart WMC again. I understand that Emby for WMC is not a focus right now, as WMC is not developed further, but it sure would be nice if this can be fixed... many thanks
