Hi Tiemo,

just made a little test on my "stock" Win10 installation (Parallels on my Mac).

WindowsMediaPlayer plays any MP4 fine, but nothing appears in the player of Livecode!?
So this is definitively a LC issue!

Then I downloaded and installed the latest LAVFilter codec package:
Et voila, I can play these MP4, which did not play before, in LC!? 
Does not make any sense actually!?
