|Version:||VirtualBox 4.1.12||Keywords:||silverlight, video playback, cpu|
Host is Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit. Guest is Windows 7 64-bit. Ubuntu package virtualbox-qt-4.1.12-dsfg-2
Silverlight video playback (e.g. Netflix) works correctly for 1-10 minutes before stopping, leaving only a black screen in the silverlight window.
Workaround: Run with only 1 CPU allocated to the guest OS.
Hardware- Core i7, Nvidia gt430 based gpu. Virtualbox config: 5000MB RAM allocated to guest, dynamically allocated disk (VDI). VT-x/AMD-V enabled, nesting paging enabled. Tried with 3D/2D acceleration disabled and enabled. All other settings are installation default.
