I was trying to get frames from a video using Xuggle 5.4. The IDE which I use is Eclipse Juno.The last time (which was roughly one months back) when I tried, I got the frames with a gap of 5 seconds, but today when I tried to run the code I got the below error

# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:

# See problematic frame for where to report the bug.

When I googled this, I found similar similar problems, but i failed to get any solution or cause for this problem.

What may be the reason for this? I am not able to find the native code which is the cause for the crash. I used to update Java whenever available.

My need is to get the frames from a video file, what other ways are there to get this done? Feel free to ask for detail.

The problem was due to the recent update on Java. When I switched back to the older version, it worked fine without any crashing.

Hope it will be fixed during next update.
