    In my studies on learning about the SDK...
    I am attempting to run the MoviePlayer demo (downloaded today from Apple).

    Everything appears normal, until you click play....
    Then the icon in the simulator just spins... and the video never plays.

    No error messages, nothing shows up in the debugger... no feedback on why it isn't working.

    The video file isn't corrupt, it can be played in iTunes.

    I just went through and updated to the final version of the SDK...
    And verified I had all other items up to date.

    Any ideas?

    After playing with multiple things...
    I followed the load pattern in the debugger.

    Found that it was loading DiVX items.
    So I figured... easy enough to re-install.

    Uninstalled DiVX (This was the full DiVX package from

    Rebooted just to make sure there was nothing residual in the system.

    Started up the demo app...
    Worked as expected...

    Guess the Simulator doesn't like having the Divx items installed.
