managed directx sample csAVPlayer barely works

First of all, sorry for the cross-post. Seems like there should be a
managed directx newsgroup.

I'm trying to open the following sample application that comes with the
DirectX SDK.
C:\DXSDK\Sample s\C#\AudioVideo \Bin\csAVPlayer .exe

It will not play some of the samples shipped with the SDK. It either
completey hangs the application (and I have to use Windows Task Manager to
kill it) or sometimes it displays an error message. Below are the exact
results of my tests on three different computers with three different
versions of windows and different versions of the SD / redist runtime. I am
curious if anybody else can duplicate these problems (I know there was a
post about the audio problems before). And if there are any known issues
that I can check (do i need other plugins or software, like quicktime?)

Thank you in advance for any help.

just found the directx.managed ng.
It's not under: microsoft.publi c.directx
and not under microsoft.publi c.dotnet
NO - that would make too much sense.
Instead, it's located here:
microsoft.publi c.win32.program mer.directx.man aged

so i hope you all forgive me if I multi-post over to that ng in a week or
so, if I don't get any replies here...
