Hi all

Anyone know why HS don't play .mp4 videos on 15hz Windows 7 setup?

I installed VLC player and tried them outside HS and they play fine, but when I start HS I think it's uses Media Player 9 and .mp4 is not supported as far as I am aware.

I thought it was the other way around??

It's started with .flv and then moved to .mp4

I google this issue and got the below returned. Pretty sure I had to do this back in the day myself.

You need to disable hardware acceleration for MP4s by watching any video at Youtube.com (it affects the MP4 settings globally). Since the option to disable hardware acceleration is only available on Firefox when you right click the video, you'll need Firefox installed. (It does not show this option for Internet Explorer or Chrome.)

No more green screen! Since it's an Mp4 codec issue, it doesn't affect the hardware acceleration for the games (that I know of)
