    This update addresses the "Game Stops Responding or Quits Unexpectedly When Introductory Video Clip Is Played" issue in Windows XP

    you may receive an error message that is similar to one of the following messages:

    Video not available - cannot find 'VIDS:IV50' decompressor
    Failed (hr=0x80004002) in pVW-> put_Owner((OAHWND)HWnd)

    This behavior occurs if the following conditions are true: The game that you want to play contains video that is compressed with the Indeo video codec (like Mafia) and the Indeo codec is not installed on the computer. The Indeo codec is not included in Windows XP ( with SP1 slipstreamed)

    download it from here
