managed directx sample csAVPlayer barely works

P: n/a
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\Samples\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.

DirectX 9.0B SDK

Run csAvPlayer with each of the following included Media (installed with
SDK:)
butterfly.mpg - runs fine
chicken.wmv - locks up (kill with X button on app, get End Now dialog, then
Send Report dialog)
clocktxt.avi - runs fine
DRMShow.avi - doesn't run, displays the dialog "Invalid File: This file
could not be opened".
highway.avi - locks up (kill with X button, but still have to kill the
process csAVPlayer with task manager)
lake.mpg - runs fine
ruby.avi - doesn't run (kill with X button, but still have to kill the
process csAVPlayer with task manager)
skiing.avi - doesn't run (kill with X button, but still have to kill the
process csAVPlayer with task manager)

just found the directx.managed ng.
It's not under: microsoft.public.directx
and not under microsoft.public.dotnet
NO - that would make too much sense.
Instead, it's located here:
microsoft.public.win32.programmer.directx.managed

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...
