On Windows, the direct show media player hooked into by LiveCode does not have all the codecs "wrapped up" by default. If you install the K-Lite codec pack from www.codecguide.com that will probably solve the issue. If not, we need more info about the specific environment and code you are using.

Well, there could be a number of reasons for this, such as what SparkOut mentioned with codecs. Among other things you might check -
  • Did you actually copy the video over to the other computer as well?
  • Does it have the same name and location your code expects to find it at?
  • Can you play the video on that other computer using the default player? (Will tell you if it is codec or not).
Just what hits me off the top of my head.
