I'm using MoviePlusX3 on a Core2 Quad (4 x 3GHz) with 4GB of RAM and a 1024MB ATI Radeon Diamond graphics card using Vista Home Premium 64-bit. I have also downloaded and installed all available MPX3 patches.
I said all that because you'd expect MPX3 to run like the proverbial "s*** off of a shovel". However, the reality is that it runs slower than it did on my old Core2 Duo with Windows XP Home and it now also constantly crashes. I have tried adding some huge HD files (1920 x 1080) in .m2ts format - crash! low resolution files (512 x 384) in .wmv format - crash! - etc, etc.
The next test on my new PC (as I have now created a dual boot system - Vista 64-bit and XP Home) was to run MPX3 under XP - it runs like an express train, yeeeehaaa!
My conclusion is that MPX3 does not like Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit.
Does anyone else have similar experiences with Vista? Would anyone from Serif like to comment on possible patches/fixes?
Just giving a hint from a different program that has a problem running under Vista 64. When this program is run as administrator it works fine. Maybe MPX3 will work the same, at least it won't cost you anything to try.
"operator error", "OPERATOR ERROR" - what can you mean?"
Seriously though, I'll have a scout round for any updated drivers for my ATI Radeon HD 4800 video card, even though I only bought it a week or two ago (I know the installation CDs can, like me, be quite old).
Once I've done that, I'll report back!
(PS - just looked at the "PNY NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600" - perhaps I'll get a couple of them! )
