.mkv playback freezes

posted in General

I have a few large (8-9gb) .mkv files that freeze at a certain point during playback. No matter what player I use (tried MPC and VLC) the freeze occurs at the exact same time (for example, one movie freezes at the 00:55:48 mark). If I try to fast forward to a point beyond that, the video will never start to play. I thought it might originally be a problem with the file, but no one else with this file has the problem, and the problem is occurring on 4 different movies (they all freeze at different points between about 16 minutes in, to an hour in).

It shouldn’t be a hardware problem, I’m on a Q9550 quad core processor, have 8GB RAM, and a GeForce 9800GTX+ video card. I’m on Vista Premium 64-bit. reply

Yes, I’m pretty good with computers and video and can’t quite figure out what’s going on. The only thing I could think of was a bad file, but ruled this out because the number of files with similar symptoms, plus the fact that other people are having success with the file.

Anyone have any ideas? reply
