    Unable to play High resolution videos in Photos app.


    I've noticed a weird trait with the Photos App in Windows 10 - whenever I try to play videos recorded from my phone (Samsung GS9) that have 1920x1080 or higher resolution, the video won't play. Sometimes the sound will work (kind of), but the video never displays at all. For some reason, 1280x720 videos I have recorded on my phone will play with no issues. All videos are MP4s.


    I am currently using VLC media player to view videos, but I need to use the Photos app to edit videos now that Movie Maker is gone.


    I have not seen any information that states "higher res" videos will not work with Photos. The only troubleshooting I can find is the generic updates/reset/registry stuff, which I don't think is appropriate (though I did already do the updates and resets with no success).


    Help?


    I'm using a Dell 7530 with a NVIDIA Quadro P3200.

  2. Photos app not playing videos

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply, however the problem still remains after looking at all the steps and running the troubleshooter. For some reason the photos app just doesn't seem to be able to play video now.

    Thanks
