Hi all. I have xbmc (last stable version of Frodo) playing on iMac, and it's been a couple of weeks since it crashes whenever I try to play a movie file. I installed Gotham latest version and the problem continues. It only happens when playing movie files, but not always (like 90% of the time), and it is not related to a specific movie. It has happened that it may crash when opening a certain file, but when I try to play the same file some other time it works. Regarding the rest of the performance of xbmc (updating library, changing settings) it is completely fine.

These are the last lines of my debug file before it crashed:

I've tried everything I've seen on the forum, but nothing seems to work. Would you be so kind to help me? Thanks in advance.

There is an offending rar file in your temp folder where xbmc dies on (and it has a zip file inside haha).

.xbmc/temp/sArchiver.part2.rar/sArchiver.zip/

Might be vice versa (rar file in a zip). Get rid of it and it should work better for you.
