#1676 Movie/Video preview not working
Author: user leo_os
Date created:
Type: bug
Visibility: Everybody

Labels: Flash ViewerVideo
State: closed Help

> What steps will reproduce the problem? Clicking on a movie/video inside the movies folder, which makes the preview show up. > What is the expected output? What do you see instead? Expected output: a preview of the selected video What I see: I get the error message "Preview of this object is not avaliable on this platform (Windows only).", despite running on Windows. > What version of the product are you using? Is it "nightly build"? Which operating system do you have? Decompiler: v.14.3.1 stable OS: Windows 10 Home, running update 20H2 (although the error was already occuring back when I used updates 19XX). > Please provide any additional information below. If the problem is related to a SWF file, attach it here, otherwise we can't help you. Possibly caused by me missing a codec?
I modified the message in nightly 1917. The truth is that our flash viewer cannot display movie tags. These can only be displayed by actual Flash Player - ActiveX component or standalone flash projector. You can try enabling activeX compoment in "Advanced Settings / Other / (Deprecated) Use Adobe Flash player for preview of objects", but this probably won't work, since Adobe blocks ActiveX in Windows10. I thought about it and we could probably make a button which will open external flash projector with the preview, so stay tuned...

In nightly 1918, I added option to view video tags in external flash projector. You should see a button in there.

Yup, just tested it. Working nicely. Thanks!
You're welcome.

Good news! In nightly 2306, you can properly display frames with video and DefineVideoStream tag right in the FFDec. Only thing you need is VLC media player installed.
