the portable 32-bit version 17.4.0.0 does refuse to playback

Postby lukand » Thu Apr 06, 2017 2:33 pm

Could anyone explain the reason of the following statement which appears when attempting to playback:
'MPlayer failed to start. Please check the Mplayer/mpv path in preferences'

I have tried on several computers already, but the output was always the same.

Surprisingly the corresponding portable 64-bit version works fine.

It works for me fine. Try to download the package again, maybe it got corrupted.

I tried to do it several times already and the output remained the same. Perhaps employing another server would be of help? I will try.

Another attempt from different server led me to the problem solution. Thank you!

Regrettably I need to make the amendment. In fact the pertinent version works fine on Windows 8 or Windows Vista, but not on Windows XP.

On Windows XP you need to select mplayer as multimedia engine (preferences -> general) since mpv doesn't support Windows XP anymore.
