I haven’t really used the sequencer before and am attempting to learn. I can import an avi file, switch to preview and play the file. I notice however that the file opens too large for the display window. I can zoom out, using my laptop mouse pad, up to a point, but at a certain stage in the zoom Blender stops working.
I think that it happens once the view matches the window size so that, if I continue the zoom a second too long, the crash occurs.
I’ve upgraded my version to Blender 2.49a today but the problem has continued.
