Would greatly appreciate any help on this problem below.
Just installed windows 10 and Dopus 12.9 x64 I am having trouble getting MP4 videos to playback in the viewer pane using my preferred "Movie" Plugin or the "ActiveX" Plugin.
I can get MP4s to play using the windows media player preview handler but not keen on this interface.
I WAS at one stage able to play them with the ActiveX 32 Bit preview handler but this now doesnt work perhaps due to the codecs being switched around a few times ?
Ideally i would like the MP4s and MKVs to play using the movie plugin.
MKVs and MP4s play audio but no video and LAV icons are in the system tray.
I have an older windows 7 system that will play MKV and MP4 with the Movie Plugin with the K-Lite Pack installed and have tried to replicate everything in the Windows 10 system including the codecs and LAV decoder and splitter settings but this hasn't worked.
I have read Leo's guide here and tried everything in here i think.
So just to summarise where i'm up to;
Movie Plugin with .MP4 added to config = MKV & MP4 gives blank screen with Audio
Active X 32 Bit = Plays MKV video and Audio but MP4 gives shell thumbnail and no audio
Active X 64 Bit = Plays MKV video and Audio but MP4 gives shell thumbnail and no audio
Active X Media Player Plays MKV and MP4 But poor interface within Dopus.
So im starting to think either my MP4 Codec is corrupted or there is a setting in the LAV decoder set incorrectly
I have tried setting the default Video player to all of the possible options but this doesnt appear to provide a fix.
Films and TV
VLC Media Player
Windows Media Player
MP4s DO play using these separate players
Windows 10 Windows Media Player
Windows Media Player Classic - 18.104.22.168 installed
Currently have the following codec packs installed
LAV Video Decoder 0.72.0
I have also tried and removed these alternatives

- Quicktime for Windows
