Thanks Mark.

Did you try the latest Nvidia driver (not in the ports yet :
270.41.06)? Looks a lot of better here (usualy the box freezes
after only one or two videos)

My graphic card is a GeForce GTX 460:

vgapci0: <VGA-compatible display> port 0xbc00-0xbc7f mem
0xf4000000-0xf5ffffff,0xe8000000-0xefffffff,0xe4000000-0xe7ffffff irq
16 at device 0.0 on pci1
nvidia0: <GeForce GTX 460> on vgapci0
vgapci0: child nvidia0 requested pci_enable_io
vgapci0: child nvidia0 requested pci_enable_io
nvidia0: [ITHREAD]

vgapci0 at pci0:1:0:0:	class=0x030000 card=0x086510de 
chip=0x0e2210de rev=0xa1 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'NVIDIA Corporation'
    class      = display
    subclass   = VGA

Well if I still have crash, I will try with a 32 bits version.
