    I have a problem with opening recordings made with the game bar.


    The app I used to use to play these recordings was the Movies and TV app, which worked fine... until recently. Now it shows an error message saying it does support the format of the recording which is MP4. From what I've seen, MP4 is the normal format for recordings like these, so why cant I play it?

    Movies and TV app - MP4 file problem


    Hello all,
    Running Ver 1607;
    As a result of a seperate issue, I recently changed to 'Movies & TV' app as my default in lieu of Windows Media Player.

    When I play MP4 movies on my PC, the video is jerky and the audio is out of synch? Basically they are not watchable. AVI files play ok.

    If I play any MP4 from my media player (windows share), it plays normally.

    If I play any MP4 using WMP it plays normally.

    I have run Defender and Malwarebytes (free) just to be sure and they both come up clear of any nasties.

    Have I somehow got a corrupt MP4 codec in 'Movies & TV'? Is this possible?

    How would I rectify this? Prefer to stay with 'Movies & TV'.

    Thanks to Ivan & Jimbo45 for some suggestions to use another media player.

    Anybody else care to offer a suggestion on why Movies and TV app is not working for MP4?
    Should I try to uninstall and then re install?

    When I try an play any Mp4 movie in the Movies & Tv app it attempts to play, gives the movie details like running time but will not play and closes the app. It was working fine. Restarted the computer several times.
