    SFPlayConsumer::Execute TIMEOUT's? Remove OpenIO_VirtIO.acf.

    Hello Fellow Avid User,

    You might be sad because you're getting this error and you don't know why - SFPlayConsumer::Execute TIMEOUT.

    It may be one of two things:

    1. Your system isn't fast enough to handle your media.

    2. You haven't removed OpenIO_VirtIO.acf.


    Item 1 could be a number of things. Here's how to execute Item 2.


    How to Remove OpenIO_VirtIO.acf:

    1. Quit Media Composer.

    2. Locate the Avid Media Composer application in Finder.

    3. Right- or Control-click on it, and select "Show Package Contents".

    4. Go to "../Contents/SharedSupport/AVX_Plugins".

    5. Locate the OpenIO_VirtIO.acf file. Hold the Option (Alt) key and drag a copy of it to your Desktop. (Your mouse pointer will have a green plus arrow on top.)

    6. Delete OpenIO_VirtIO.acf from the Avid Media Composer app package.

    7. Relaunch Media Composer.


    If SFPlayConsumer::Execute TIMEOUT doesn't go away, then something else is causing the error. If Media Composer gets worse, put OpenIO_VirtIO.acf back in the app package. Quit Media Composer before re-inserting.

    Hope that helps!
