Fmod.dll 3.74 crashes when playing wma files (actually, the typically ‘This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down…’, ‘… caused a divide error in module FMOD.DLL at 017f:1002b3c5; Screenshot at http://www.ctuser.net/wma374e1.png / 40kb)
(The application/playback continue without any further problem until you click ‘close’)
3.73 works without this error.
I have ca 180 wma files from the game ‘Soldiers – Heroes of WW2″ (provided with the game), and 2 wma files from Splintercell (2?) (downloaded from an official homepage).
(All have ‘WMFSDKVersion 8.00.00.4487’ / ‘ Windows Media Audio V8’ string)
They all cause this problem with fmod 3.74, but work fine with 3.73.
Tried also with the official fmod player, same problem
Don’t know if it’s ‘the player that is crashing’; Maybe it’s just some Windows media ‘engine’ problem, however as the problem occurs with 3.74 there’s something changed in fmod.dll and now I got this problem…
It’s ok if this problem only occurs on my PC. I don’t really like wma and typically reconvert them to ogg or mp3.
I’ll try to find a few more wma files and test them, and try on other computers.
- Well, how do I know if wma’s are of the same ‘type’?
- I heard wma supports some strange things to prevent copying or allowing limited playback…
Wouldn’t bother if fmod wouldn’t play, my problem is it ‘crashes’ (divide error). More suspicious, it plays them until song ends or you click OK on the crash dialog.
- It works with fmod.dll 3.73
- Just converted a wav to a wma (using Dennis Rebentrost’s Audio Converter 2.05; which uses microsoft dlls; doesn’t have any protection settings for wma’s). Same problem with the converted file
- The error occurs when FSOUND_Stream_PlayEx (_FSOUND_Stream_PlayEx@16)
(VB6 caused a divide error in module FMOD.DLL)
