So it did.

Here's a response CSO Beeblebrox gave another player a short while ago.

"In some installations of CC, when you launch the game it crashes with a "...Format on Stream..." error.

This is because there is a missing or corrupt Media Player CODEC which causes the game to abort when it tries to play the vids.

The other solution to this is to switch off the Vids in Options [F8]

If you launch the game while pressing the [Ctrl] key, CC will load bypassing the Vids."
