Hi Klaus,

My experience with this issue was trying to view "youtube live" using the
browser widget, which uses h264...its how I found out that CEF needs to be
built with "-proprietary codec" flag in order to be able to play h264
videos from youtube or vimeo.

It would make sense that its the same reason why LC player does not play
anything with h264.

Yes that is what I was implying, building LC and CEF (Chrome Browser in a
widget) with the codecs.
