Video playback is a mess under Linux. We are eagerly awaiting the new
I don't have helpful advice, but my experience in openSUSE is that
LiveCode attempts to play videoclips using mplayer by default. Audio
plays but video does not display. This is true regardless of whether or
not desktop effects are enabled. It seems unlikely that this would be
codec dependent since mplayer is clearly playing the file and is capable
of rendering the video along with the audio. On my system disabling
desktop effects prior to launching LiveCode allows video to display in
the player (not as a videoclip, though) but now, in LC 6.5.0, hue is
completely off. As I said, eagerly awaiting the new player...
