This is a codec issue. I had the same problem and fixed it by reinstalling K-Lite Codec Pack, selecting ffdshow where possible.
Darucas: I've got the same crash with the K-Lite codec pack installed. As expected, Silver is in the exception lists (for video and audio) but it still crashes. Moving the videos elsewhere works though, thanks!
IIRC "Other video formats" was critical. "prefer LAV over ffdshow" crashed the game, while "prefer ffdshow over LAV" was OK.
