View Full Version : WMP11 "out of memory" error

04-12-2006, 03:04 PM
Im trying to play dvds in WMP11, running on Win Vista RC1, everytime i put a dvd in i get an error saying "Your computer is running low on memory. Quit other programs, and then try again" i have 1GB ram, system info says i have 548mb left. surely a dvd doesnt need that much ram to play. using Windows Media Centre in vista results in "decoder error, the video decoder has either malfunctioned or is not installed please restart Windows Media Centre or the computer"

i am perplexed at this. any suggestions?

How much free HDD space?

Have you checked your how much HDD space have you allocated for virtual memory? Also, try playing the DVD under safe mode and see if that works or not.

Cheers :)

i have 120GB free space, virtual mem is set as 2048mb.
dvd plays fine on XP, doesnt play in safe mode in vista.

Hmmm... maybe upgrading to Vista RC2 might help? I have no more other possible resolutions in my head, aidanmaz.
