Hi, dear all !

Coming back here after all, because i really think this needs being 
fixed if "Gem" wants to be usable in the windoze world:

Just tried PD 0.51 / Gem 0.94 / K-lite mega codec pack on a new and 
truly dedicated Win10 machine.

Bottom line is:

Only "homer.avi" works for video-playback, all other formats (mjpeg, ut, 
x264, mpeg etc.) will produce 1 frame and then freeze (= crash) PD.

the example clip "homer.avi" was encoded very long ago with the "indeo" 
codec, which has been discontinued officially since 2009 (so, the k-lite 
codec pack doesn't even come to play here). not even ffmpeg could encode 
a "indeo" video these days, let alone at any decent size.
