See the JavaFX 2.2.4 System Requirements:
For Windows XP and Windows Vista, JavaFX Media 2.2.4 requires that one of the following external modules be installed (by order of preference) to play AAC audio and H.264/AVC video:
MainConcept H.264/AVC Pro Decoder Pack
DivX Plus Codec Pack
MainConcept Showcase (includes demo version codecs)
Here is a link the DivX site so that you may download the appropriate codec for Windows Vista:
And another for MainConcept:
Looks like you already tried at least DivX Plus, in which case you can file a bug against the Runtime project Media component at:
Other media files, including flv files, played OKYeah, the reason for this is: "VP6 video support does not require any third party modules."
Thank you for your prompt response.
I was aware of the JavaFX 2.2.4 System Requirements, hence my reason for installing DivX Plus codec. I did not try MainConcept H.264/AVC Pro Decoder Pack because of the cost involved. After your response, I installed MainConcept Showcase (which includes demo version codecs). That did not work either - I get the same error, namely "GStreamer encountered a general stream error". (The media player included with MainConcept Showcase plays the same media files just fine.) For good measure, I tried both the 32- and 64-bit versions of the install. (My application too has 32- and 64-bit versions.)
So for now I am unable to play mp4 files on Windows Vista. Any other suggestions would be most welcome.
Thanks again for your help.
