I'm playing video in a MediaElement in WPF.
It's working 1000's of times, over and over again.
Once in a blue moon (like once a week), I get a windows exception (you know the dialog Dr. Watson Crash??) that happens. The MediaElment doesn't expose an error, it just crashes and sits there with an ugly Crash report on the screen.
If you "view this report" you can see it is in fact MediaPlayer that has crashed. I know I can disable the crash reports from popping up – but I'm more interested in finding out what's going wrong.
I'm not sure how to capture the results of the Dr. Watson capture, but I have the dialog open now if someone has advice on a better way to capture. Here is the opening line of data, that points to my application, then to wmvdecod.dll
And from the Win Event Log. (same information)
