While trying to use the MSU de-interlacer or either of the two pre-loaded deinterlacer plugins I get an error message: "COM Surrogate has stopped working." Here's the technical info:

Application Version: 6.1.7600.16385
Application Timestamp: 4a5bc6b7
Fault Module Name: huffyuv.dll

Exception Code: c0000005
Exception Offset: 00008819
OS Version: 6.1.7601.
Locale ID: 1033
Additional Information 1: 0a9e
Additional Information 2: 0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e789

Yes, I know I have the beta version of the codec installed, but I was trying it out to see if it would resolve this problem and it does not. Does anyone have a clue what's wrong or is this simply an incompatibility between the codec and the plugin?

I don't know if this is related or not, but the program also crashes when I try to open a huffyuv AVI file in virtualdub that I recorded with virtualdub.

Hmm, it seems it's from the dllhost.exe. If you use the process explorer, could you find what's making it crash?


Been a long time I've had that error, sounds unstable.
