My system is Windows 10 x64. My media software environment simply consists of these few programs that were freshly installed last month:
- Nvidia Studio Drivers
- Lav Filters
- Media Player Classic BE x64
Generally speaking, I have no problems with video playback on my system. But within Directory Opus (with the 'Movies' plugin) selecting a video will result in the the viewer pane showing a black or blank screen.
Here's the funny thing...when the 'Movies' plugin has to generate thumbnails, I can see it calling up a combination of LAV Splitter+Audio+Video. There's no problem here & the thumbnails are generated properly.
But when the 'Movies' plugin has to play a video, it only calls up the LAV Splitter & Audio components. It's not able to call up the Video component. Hence the black screen result.
