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!
This is a codec issue. I had the same problem and fixed it by reinstalling K-Lite Codec Pack, selecting ffdshow where possible.

IIRC "Other video formats" was critical. "prefer LAV over ffdshow" crashed the game, while "prefer ffdshow over LAV" was OK.

If the intro plays (first the Infogrames logo, then another video), then codecs are OK, and this is a next issue. I guess your crash happens when the game tries to render the main menu. What video card and driver version do you have?

It might be a problem with notebook integrated video card.
What video card do you have?
