    Hi all MDL members, I was finding some video in the Internet and downloaded a file of .tp (Transport Stream) video format.
    When I opened it, my Windows 7 with SP1 64-bit turned nuts and suddenly went blue screen. I restarted my computer and opened the .tp file again, it had the same result.

    I opened the file using Media Player Classic with K-Lite Mega Codec Pack installed. Nothing strange happened with the other .tp files.

    I would believe an executable could cause a blue screen. But it was rather unexpected to have a blue screen when I was opening a video. How come a video could cause blue screen?

    Any thoughts? Thank you.

    I agree it's very weird that a data file could cause a bluescreen.

    Similar to what I encountered the other day. I've got an ISO file, I can mount it with Virtual CloneDrive and everything seems ok, but as soon as I try doing anything with it the system bluescreens. A corrupt ISO or physical disk filesystem should not be able to do that either.

    Fortunately the .tp video file was running well in Windows 7 32-bit.
    Anyway, thanks for you two's helps.
    I think the GOM Player's quite good. It can play .flac audios and most videos. Thanks for sebus your recommendation.

    I discovered that the GOM Player can jump to one part of a video just immediately which is faster than Windows Media Player and MPC.
    It is really smooth and there's no dots on the screen. Nice choice, sebus, thanks again.
