Hi Francis,

I am using LiveCode 5.5 (Mac, Sierra 10.12.6) mainly. But it cannot play some mp4 files. The video files do not show video frames. QuickTime 7 player cannot play the problem files, but QuickTime 10 player can. I think some new video files (mp4) are not a same old format of video. I have to convert the problem mp4 file to a new mp4 file. I use a screen recording & editing application “ScreenFlow (Mac)” for the video conversion. I like ScreenFlow, but you may find other conversion applications. 

Best,
