Hello,

I’m currently using Elan 5.6-FX on a Windows 10 pc. I do not know if it’s the latest version or what, but the video playback does not work anymore. The sound is played perfectly fine and in a very rare occation the video might show, but 99.9% of the play attempts lead to only blue box (sometimes with a white box inside it) in place of where the video should show up. Below is a log of one video opening attempt. Can anyone help me to resolve this?

Hi, the strange thing is that you have an .mp4 file and that ELAN tries to create a JDSPlayer (and that that doesn’t result in a clear error).
Normally, ELAN on Windows tries to create a JMMFPlayer (Java – Microsoft Media Foundation based player) for .mp4. I don’t know how this can happen.
Not sure if this will solve it, but in the “app” folder in ELAN’s installation folder, there is a text file “elan.properties”.
Lines starting with a “#” are comment lines.
If you make sure there is an active (non-comment) line like this:

PreferredMediaFramework=JMMF

and then launch ELAN again; does the video show up correctly then?
