    Glad I could help (my first contrib to the project ). I'm curious though what you mean by 'small amounts of memory' as I'm getting this error on a NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT with 512MB. I know that isn't a rock'n gamer card...but I wouldn't call it small either.

    Thats very strange...I wouldn't expect that kind of problem on that card.
    Give this a try and see if it works:

    It's better - only 50% CPU now

    Not sure if this helps or is just smoke, but it is only 25% CPU on my home computer which is a quad core but integrated graphics. I know there are a lot of variables, but thought I'd throw it out there.

    That was just to fix that random crash you were seeing (still working on CPU usage)... it could just be that nvidia was a little conservative with the driver design for that card (maybe even just used drivers from an older model with less memory)...in either case the new version detects maximum image size and resizes everything to meet the cards requirements.

    None of the buttons seem to do anything, except for exit and media and when you get to media nothing seems to happen.
    That is because the only plugins supplied with these tests are the OMPlayer, and OMMediaDB plugins.

    Totally agree. Added to our to-do list. CPU optimization in on the to-do list as well.

    Realised that when I looked at the website and saw the plugin section and compared that to what was in my plugin folder.

    My bad, I was blending issues - I do that at work too. Sounds like you have it all under control.

    By the way, I'll be happy to test anything you want to throw out there. I saw you made mention of a thread for testing volunteers, but I have never found it. I would be happy to do that and have access to at least 4 different PCs (all Win right now) and have VS 2005/2010 installed on most. I'll probably start digging into the code too, would love to provide a hand there too.

    New version rolled out...first post updated:
    Fixes a major issue that XP would fallback to software rendering and cause high CPU usage.

    We just rolled out a new framework that tests each revision on an x86, x64, windows 7,windows xp and ubunutu installation. So i think we are ok on testing now. We always would welcome help on the code side though...anything from pointing out bugs to helping with code to creating plugins.
