    Spent Months preparing Videos and building my Autoplay Package

    Built on Win7 Ultimate x 64 AMS 8.5

    8 pages Running 18 videos in MPEG-4 .mp4 Format

    Opening page is set to Auto start the 1st Video

    Working fine on my 3 Win7 machines

    Tried to run on a laptop and another desktop running Win 8.1
    Autoplay launches but the video fails to play,
    Just a black window of the Page where the video should appear.

    Although on the same machines the videos can be played from the Autorun Video folder by VLC media player etc..

    Solution Install WMedia Player Codec pack or KLite Codec pack on 8.1 machine and everything works perfectly.


    My question is:
    How to install or determine weather the WIN7 or 8.1 Machine has the correct Codec and What is that codec? Since the Codec must be there for the videos to play standalone from the Autoplay Folder.

    Any suggestion greatly appreciated

    Maybe found the answer that the DirectShow filters are required
    However it is reported that mp4 files have played on WMP 8.1 prior to launching Autoplay
    Is there some code for AMS to trigger directshow

    Cheers

      It could be also a codec problem with windows 8.1 I never had a problem with AMS this way.

        I bet it is a codec problem.
        Convert to WMV. They are (almost) always working.

        programming is very easy, just put the characters in the right order....

          Thanks for the info

          Recoded videos to WMV and appears to work now on the problematic 8.1 platforms

          Best regards
