#347 Windows Explorer crashes, seemingly in generating previews


This has been a longterm issue. I just updated to the latest dev. build and it continues.

This is the Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Explorer message on crash (Intel CPU, AMD GPU):

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BEX64

It references the dev build version I installed, so I assume that the issue still exists.

It happens only if I have an explorer view setting that shows previews, and not until I've scrolled down a ways (presumably to a point where a problematic preview is attempted.)

Thank you, wonderful developers :)

    Add explorer.exe to the blacklist (Options > DirectShow control).

    This shell extension is much better than the standard one from Windows:

      My world is now perfect... better, even. :)

      However, I'm still guessing that ffdshow.ax terminated improperly or something, and the issue probably effects lots of Windows users.

      Now, why did I wait YEARS to ask this question?! :) have a great day. :)
