    I am having this problem.

    I just downloaded this HD movie and I am having difficulty seeing it in Windows 2003 Enterprise.(1 Gb of RAM, Boot partition has 50 Gb and 32 Gb are still free) I try to see it twice with VLC player, which plays it with some minor hickups, but suddenly it crashes and the PC shutdown itself. I try to install PowerdDVD ultra deluxe 7.3, but it asks me to have DirectX 9.0b or better. I installed DirectX 9.0c but the error message continues to recur and stops the Cyberlink PowerDVD ultra installation. Here are my questions:
    1- How do I vercome this problem?
    2- How do I check if DirectX 9.0c is registered on my PC?
    3- Do you know another player that will play this HD movie without these hurdles?
    4- If not tell me some codecs that will help play this type of movie

    sounds like a special problem...let's see:

    First of all I need to know what kind of file it is. AVI, MPEG, MPG4...?
    PAL/NTSC? Try to install PowerDVD, just any version, nothing special, and Direct-X b.

    Or elseway, maybe it is just a codec problem. I recommend the use of a codec package. What OS do you use? I know two very good codec packages, but it depends on wether you use winXP or winVista.
