MediaShout Crashing with AMD Video Drivers

If you are experiencing what seems to be a random crash with MediaShout, or possibly other odd display issues, check to see if you have an AMD Video card. If so, there could be a couple of third party applications called Raptr and/or Plays.TV that were automatically installed with an update to the AMD driver. We have found that there is not an option you can select to prevent these items from being installed, but if you go to Control Panel/Programs & Features, you can manually uninstall them as you would any other application.

The links below come directly from Plays.TV and AMD. They may provide more useful information concerning these applications and how they can impact system performance.
