I recently installed a fresh copy of Mint 15 64-bit verison. I started to test it out and I stumbled on one problem. I'm trying to open video files from a network computer which runs Win XP. The file manager mounts the drive and displays everything well. However, when I try to open the video file (either with VLC or totem), it crashes. When I open it with VLC, it doesn't load the file and the GUI hangs; after i close it, the VLC notification icon remains until I unmount the drive (when i do, it shows a GUI "Volume is busy" with 'gvfsd-fuse' being the problem). When i try it with totem, it shows me a gray GUI that I must close by force; when i unmount the drive, the "Volume is busy" GUI says 'totem' is the problem. I must note that totem works correctly most of the time, but from time to time crashes; VLC seldomly works.
Can anyone help as to why I'm having these crashes? Is it a network problem? VLC? or Is it something with Olivia?
Any help is appreciated! Thanks in advance
