Why does the XBMC media player freeze up?

JS April 29, 2011

Have been using XBMC for a few months now. I have found that it freezes up occasionally.

    could you please be a more specific and provide a little more information?
    On what operating system did you install XBMC?
    What triggers a freeze? Is it completely random or does it happen when you play certain file types or cross a certain number of files - anything?

      I have a 8GB of RAM, a Gigabyte Motherboard and an i7 chip. Dual
      monitors set up and I run XBMC in full screen on one and work on the
      other. I find that as I switch between folders or buttons XBMC seems to
      lag or freeze up temporarily. Plays fine when it starts but sometimes
      switching between Movies screen and TV screen it freezes for a short
