xnview turns my monitor off

Post by uzernaam »

If I open xnview with video thumbnails on, it loads the folder with thumbnails very slowly. Then, if I click on any video file just once, my monitor turns off. I have to hit escape, wait 10 seconds, hit the power button on my monitor and wait another 10 seconds, then hit the power button on my monitor AGAIN to turn it back on.

No previews or open windows of video files are possible with xnview for me. I've been using it over 10 years on many different PCs and have never had video playback work with this program. I don't know how anyone else has ever got it to work...

i can't reproduce, if you want video playing in XnView Classic, please install codecs (like Klite codec pack)
