Trouble playing videos with MS DirectShow LC 8

I’m certainly no expert on video encoding but since you used the Intel QSV H.264 encoder I’m wondering if the Livecode implementation of DirectShow does not support that hardware based encoder. You might have better luck and broader compatibilty using something like the default encoder in Handbrake.

Making some further tests, I discovered that there must be a relation to mp4
video files.
I tested the same standalone with an old avi file and that worked, but not
with some different mp4 files
But it can't be something in general, because the mp4 file can be played
fine with the same standalone on my W10 machine.
So I am still searching for an idea, what could be different on my machine
to "all" others.
