I am trying to run an experiment where a 5-minute video is played in 30-second segments (i.e. segment 1 = 0:00-0:30; segment 2 = 0:30-1:00; segment 3 = 1:00-1:30; etc.). I have 10 MovieDisplay objects set up to play these 10 segments, with the corresponding start/stop times programmed in the settings.
Unfortunately, I am repeatedly getting the following error message that "the operation to load the sound timed out":
This is occurring at the MovieDisplay.load command in the script, and it is happening for multiple different MovieDisplay objects. (In other words, the error is not always occurring at segment #4, sometimes it's at #6, or #2, or sometimes it doesn't occur at all...) I've tried all of the "quick-fix" things, such as deleting the MovieDisplay objects and recreating them, re-organizing the experiment procedure, trying multiple different videos, and trying different computers, but nothing works consistently.
I am currently running Eprime 22.214.171.1246, Service Pack 2.
Can anyone offer some guidance?
