Description

Movian crashes when reading some video files, probably related to high ReFrames encoding. It happens when accessing the folder with the new video file and Movian tries to read it to get some info. The interface stalls and you have to turn the PS3 off by holding the power button.

I has a 50 Mb sample, no need to download it all -> rarbg.to/torrent/arxfsck

This has happened to me with other video files. If movian has problems reading some files or if can't play them, it should never crash that way. Implementing a feature to mark in the interface incompatible files (like video format profile too high) could be a good option.

It's hard to make a program 100% crash safe in particular on systems like PS3 which offers no type of sandboxing capabilites.

I need a sample of the file to fix it otherwise i will close the issue.

Please fix this, I'm pretty sure it's about high "ReFrames" encoded videos. There are lots of movies I can`'t play and I have to hard reset the PS3 just for listing them!

Is this still reproducible on 5.0.500?
