To All Users with the Video Error 5 Problem:

Although we had not seen this error here at DATOM, it reared its ugly head
in the final stages of testing for version 10.28.  This was puzzling since
nothing changed in this area of code.  Indeed, the video handler is a third

testing positively confirmed the fix.

Everyone should download 10.28 off the web site which should fix the
