  1. Videos won't play-Movies & TV app Windows 10


    Windows 10-Videos

    Movies & TV is set as my default app in settings. When I double click on a video, the video image

    loads OK, but when I hit the play button, nothing happens. However, when the same clip isopened with

    Windows Media Player, it plays fine.

    Question: If movies & TV app is set as default, why will the video only load, but not play?

    :)

    Movies and TV UWP app will not play security cam AVI

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you want to play AVI files using Movies & TV app. The Movies & TV app supports most of the video file formats including AVI. For more information, see

    File formats supported by the Movies & TV app in Windows 10
    .



    However, it would be great if you can reply with the details requested below:



    • What happens when you try to play AVI videos in Movies & TV app?
    • Do you receive an error message/code? If yes, what is the error message/code?


    Meanwhile, I would suggest you to download the
    MPEG-2 Video Extension
    and see if that helps.



    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,

  3. "Movies & TV" app controls

    keyboard

    Support team suggests this article when asking for list of keyboard controls for Movies and TV app. Article reads:

    "Enjoying Videos in Windows 10: You will find the Movies & TV app in Windows 10 better than ever for playing all your personal videos, as well as all the movies and TV shows you love. Import your personal video collection, and play back your content in a fast
    and elegantly designed app that is optimized for both mouse/keyboard as well as touch. Drag and drop videos between your collections, use right clicks and hot keys for contextual menus, or go full-screen with easy to use playback controls. We’ve also added
    additional file format support like .MKV too."

    No information regarding controls is available. 90% of users give up and go back to VLC player, which not only has KB controls but allows mapping as well.
