Full screen AIR application that plays 8 videos (mp4) in a loop for local community center.

This application runs flawlessly on an 9 year old dell inspiron zino hd (windows vista), and a 10 year old macbook pro for days on end without ever turning off the machine and screen.

The local community center recently bought a ASUS EB1036 that has windows 8 on it.

This machine will run for a couple hours but then the AIR app goes black.

I have added some display fields in a test version of the AIR app to see time played, total memory used, file being played, etc...

When ran on the ASUS, the screen eventually will go black and freezes to an extent however the timer keeps ticking showing time played.  However, it stops playing video and triggering events.

Any ideas?

I recently had a problem on a target machine. No way to debug it. But I found this solution which will record errors and trace statements to a text file. Turns out it was the target machine loading files asynchronously in a different order than the test machine. Then I simply refactored it to ensure the loaded reference was in fact loaded.
