which codecs have you install ? "standalone" codecs or ffdshow ?
are you sure your graphic card driver is up to date ?
did you try to load a movie with "common" codec (indeo, rle..) or even a
short uncompressed movie ?
you should really update to the last version of pd/Gem even if right
now it doesn't help you.

I open the patches and when i play them, pd crashes. All my patches have video (DivX) that used to load fine in the old laptop but i can't get them to work in this new one. I installed the DivX codecs, of course, but it doesn't work.
