I need to rephrase my query just to be clear. It's slow on the start-up, it takes several seconds to get the first frame out. VLC starts almost instantly with the same test files. It appears ok once the first frame is loaded. Why would there be a hold up for the first frame?
As far as the video itself - any video, any length, any format. Doesn't matter which frame I start off at either.
The other thing, I'm getting an out of memory error with one video, which plays fine elsewhere. It's 1920x1080 and around 27 seconds long. It doesn't load any frames. Why would something like this raise an out of memory flag?
Please add more infos about your OS, the movie format you're using and if you're using Quicktime. VLC uses its own codecs instead of relying on the system's codecs.
Regarding the "out of memory" error: Without detailed information about the movie my only guess is, that opening the movie fails (e.g. because there 's no movie codec for it), which leads to returning a nullptr (as some objects/structures aren't allocated), returning an (false) "out of memory" message at another stage.
