[SOLVED] How to play mp4 videos on Windows 10N ?
So I know this has been discussed a number of times but I could not find a solution to my problem anywhere. How do I get Vivaldi to play mp4 videos? This one:
for example does not work.
I know Vivaldi uses system codecs to play videos and Windows N Edition does not have those. Can I install them somehow? I usually just use cccp (http://www.cccp-project.net) and it has been working fine for everything except Vivaldi.
Edit: I forgot to mention I use 1.9.818.44 (Stable channel) (32-Bit) if this is important.

Your problem comes from elsewhere.
For me, on Vivaldi snapshot 1.9.818.40, your video works :
Did you try to install Microsoft's media pack (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48231), which is specifically designed to enable media playback on the "N" windows editions ?
It is possible that Vivaldi (or the video) expects a codec that your "cccp" pack does not provide.
(Video works for me in non-N Win10 x64)
I did just now but after a reboot it still does not play. Is there any guide out there what to check for step by step?
Sorry, I don't know any such guide.
What is the output when you access vivaldi://gpu ?
If hardware acceleration is on, you could try disabling it in case there is a problem with your drivers or such : go to vivaldi://chrome/settings/search#hardware and uncheck the parameter to use hardware acceleration when available, probably reboot Vivaldi for it to take effect (Note : search in the Chromium settings is literal, if you use Vivaldi in another language, you may try with a translation in your local language of "hardware").
If things are better when it is off, maybe you can try updating your GPU drivers and re-enable it again, or just leave it off.
Looks exactly like yours.
However there are some Workarrounds active:
Disabling Hardware Acceleration does not change anything sadly.
Yes, the workarounds are here too, I just didn't include them in my screenshot.
I've run out of ideas, maybe someone else on the forum will be able to help you further.
Hi @Ero_Sennin , not sure if this can help but you can try it
I did try that already. Does not do anything.
@Ero_Sennin uh yes, my apologies... I didn,'t see the previous IcePanther post doh!
Well turns out it DOES work if you install the correct media feature pack. There are a ton of different versions floating arround and you need to choose exactly the one matching your windows version. In my case
was the correct one.
You need to install Windows Media Player and Feature Pack!
Me, I use Windows 7 pro x64 and I uninstalled Windows Media.
Yet the link on the video works.
However, I use to play videos: VLC. https://www.videolan.org/vlc/
Do you have a firewall, an antivirus?
Do you have an extension?
