Default Edius with Windows XP or Windows 7 with


Can anyone tell me if there is any great advantage running Windows 7 over XP.

What is the go with 64 bit?

The reason I ask is I have been having an on going problem with Edius 6.02 and haven't been able to find the issue. Here is a video explaining the problem.

I am running XP and the only thing I can think of is to install Windows 7 and go from there.

I am running Microsoft Security Essentials but this has never been an issue with Edius in the past so I think that counts that out.

Thanks to anyone thats takes the time to view the video and help diagnose the problem.

Its a bit of a mystery

I can tell you that Edius 6.x is rock solid
on Windows XP SP3. Being that you have to do a
full install to go to Win 7 64bit, might be
the thing to do. This will wipe out any
lingering issues you have in XP.
Either that or do a full re-install
of XP. Try the update first and
see if that helps before doing anything
that you might not want to do.

I watched your you tube video. What are your
computer specs? If you are still running
a core 2 with Edius 6 you are underpowered.
You say you have 4 gb of ram, is the
PAE switch engaged so that the system sees
more than 2gb? When was the last time
you defragged your video drive? How full is it?
Playing a file in WMP is not the same as
trying to play it in a full blown NLE.
What is running in the background?
Just a few things to ponder.
