Just FYI,
Ian from LC clarified the phenomenon that the mp4 videos could be played with the standard video player but not with the LC video player.

LiveCodes new video player object is based on the DirectShow API and the standard MS video players are based on the newer MS media foundation since Win 7. DirectShow doesn't supports mp4 videos without additional codecs (like from the LAV filters), but the media foundation does support mp4 without any extra codecs.
