Directshow player problem loading videos

Post by BIGGIE FRIES » Thu Aug 11, 2016 2:49 am

I'm on Windows 8.1 Livecode version 8.1 dp3.
When I try to load a video with a mp4 file extension with the new Directshow player, livecode completely shuts down. However, when I change the video's mp4 file extension to .mov the video plays fine. Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks

Klaus
