Re: Problem with webm

It works perfectly, the interface is clear, it doesn't eat processor time... That's more that you can say for many other programs now! I try and uninstall more than I keep. I'm a programmer myself and I'm still using programmes I wrote over 20 years ago! When you've got something good, keep it! Best...

Re: Problem with webm

Well, I like Media Preview. I did find an alternative but it requires .NET framewok 4 - and I refuse to install this (what we call in French) "usine à gaz" - (enormous gas factory). So I found a workaraound. Any webm I download which uses VP9 I rename to webmv (which is not activated in Media Previe...

Re: Problem with webm

Well thanks for many years use. It WAS really good. I got round the VP problem by excluding WEBM (not too many) - but now almost all YouTube videos downloaded use VP9 (plus files named .mp4...). I had the same disappointments as you trying to sell software - everybody thinks it's great - FREE! Cheers.

Re: Problem with webm (VP9)

Hi !
Things have changed! - especially YouTube!
Almost ALL the new music videos I download now are .webm (or .mp4) with VP9...

Any possibility of fixing this problem?

(I'm going to have to stop using Medai Preiew, with great regrets, because 90% of my video icons are now blank.)

Best regards

Re: Problem with webm

Thanks, Cyril
I understand the problem: also have a lot of programmes/sites to update and not enough time.
If you ever get around to it maybe you'll let us know? Thanks
All the best

Re: Problem with webm

Sorry I didn't reply before - end-of -year fêtes etc. The videos which caused the hang-ups were: .webm Video format (according to "mediaInfo": VP9 (VP_VP9 in hex in the file) Produced by: Lavf56.30.100 It doesn't matter much for me: if necessary I convert them anyway to .mp4, .ogg (.ogv) and .webm (...

Re: Problem with webm

OK! - thanks for your reply.
Actually I reconverted those files so it doesn't happen any more! (tired of the hang-ups) and then deleted them.
But I'll download them again tomorrow and check the codec used.
Best regards

Problem with webm

Hello Super programme, use it all the time. Never had any problems until the other day: some '.webm' videos dowloaded from YouTube (only some , other '.webm' created locally work fine). When I try to open a window for a folder with these videos (displayed as miniatures) Windows Explorer takes 96% of...
