It's amazing that I prefer to use my 12 year old AMD 32 bit 2 gig ram XP laptop (clean install with no updates). Why... because it never locks up, blue screens, freezes, shuts downs, lags, etc. Everything I own plays flawlessly. I also never connect it to the internet, and have 50% or more of the services disabled.

Where am I going with this..... it doesn't take much to run dj and kj programs. Try disabling some cpu and memory services (ctrl shift esc).

If every other program can play those files except Karma, then it would seem Karma is the common denominator, at least on my end. The cpu's never get out of 1st gear.

If other machines can play it (other than mine), I'm baffled.

I just installed Karma 2018.0.7 on a 10 year old Asus G1S-n-X1 lappie. Core II Duo 1.83gHz with 4gB mem, Samsung EVO840 SSD. No other software other than VLC Lan.

Does the exact same thing on this machine as it does my high powered ones.

Files work fine in VLC.

Perhaps, incompatibility with nVidia GPU's?

on a test machine having this problem, try this codec pack.
it has solved problems with Karma before, and if not, no harm done.

@ djdon, fyi, I have 2 HP Envy’s at home with the latest Karma version. Win7, 8mem and 2nd mobile rig, HP Envy, Win8.1, 16 mem.

Both laptops play all hd files including SBI with no problem. No lagging issues, graphics in-sync with the music. Straight up karma install, no 3rd party codec, no vlc lan.

Here's a video of my oldest machine using Karma, playing an SBI HD video. 30fps. It also won't play Party Tyme HD videos which are only 25fps but it will play KV videos which are 25 fps. No rhyme or reason.

There is no other software installed on this machine.

Even my most powerful machines won't play these files normally in Karma.

I just tried it and it makes it worse.
