  1. MP4 files won't play


    So I download a lot of meme videos and for some reason after I watch a few downloaded they just stop playing and is stuck on the black screen of Movies and tv which is where I watch them the only fix I know of is by restarting my computer but I don't want to have to do that so I wonder if there is a way to fix it.

    :)

    Playing MP4 files

    MP4 is a container file, a lot depends on the codecs within that.
    MP4 can be played with Windows 10 with Films & TV, Photos, Windows Media Player, and VLC.
    If those can't then there must be something odd/unusual in the file.

    Right click the File > Properties > Details Tab.
    see if that gives you more info, should be some info on the video/audio but not codecs.

    Try the suggestions from post #3.

    You have to be careful as viruses are propogated by people simply changing the filename extension and auto-forwarding via an infected PC and a compromised address list.
    So a targeted scan with AV is necessary for every file attachement even if apparently from someone you know.
