Hello Mellisa,

Are you sure that the flow diagram application that you are  using supports the .mp4 format that you are using, because I highly suspect that the error is due to an unsupported video format. You can try other format like .flv and .swf and see if they will work.

Regards,

Nicke

Hello Mellisa,

I think you are using a player which does not support mp4 video format. You may be trying windows media player. I would say that you should use VLC player, GOM player or Real Player. You can download them safely from following websites:

Your problem will be solved by using one of these players, If it does not, then you should create the video again. Hope so my information helped you.

If you have an MP4 video but you can’t play it, it means your media player does not support the MP4 format. If you are using Windows Media Player, you can install the correct codec to allow you to play MP4 videos or install a media player with MP4 support like VLC media player. Try installing a codec pack like K-Lite codec pack.

Here’s an explanation what a codec is and what it does. A video codec is software or it can also be an electronic circuit that compresses and decompresses digital video. A video codec converts uncompressed video to a compressed form or format and vice versa. In video compression, the term “codec” means “encoder” and “decoder.”

In digital video, every file format uses a particular codec or video codec like for instance, MP4 and AVI video. There is one codec for the MP4 format and there is one for the AVI format and you cannot interchange them. If you try to play a specific video format and its codec is missing from your computer, you won’t be able to play it or the media player won’t be able to play that video.

The codec designed for that video format must be installed first. One way to install different video codec is to install popular media players like the VLC media player. Another way is to install a codec pack like K-Lite codec pack. Try downloading K-Lite Codec Pack Mega. This mega variant of the K-Lite codec pack is the largest of the four variants: basic, standard, full, and mega.

This codec pack provides everything that you need to play all your audio and video files. This codec pack also includes ACM/VFW codec which can be used by video encoding/editing programs. This codec pack includes Media Player Classic so you can immediately play your files. The latest version at the moment is K-Lite Codec Pack Mega 15.4.0.

For Windows XP Service Pack 3, the latest and last compatible version is K-Lite Codec Pack Mega 13.8.5. You can also use MPlayer for Windows or download the latest VLC media player to play MP4 files.
