Hi Sean,

thank you for your links. I had already tested those links. The microsoft
media feature packs are only for the stripped "N" and "KN" versions of
windows to add those components, which are included in the standard windows
systems. Those installers can't be installed on a normal windows.
The intel link is a developer kit, if you plan to develop your own video
player, unfortunately there is no installer for the filter only.

Meanwhile I tested the LAV filter and the ffdShow filter, both are for
playback h.264 videos on the directShow API. But the video can't be played
and LiveCode still tells me " Could not create movie reference" Probably
it's not the filter, but any deeper system component or incompatibility.

Thanks for jumping in
Tiemo
