VLC Won’t Play MP4 Files, Sovled! http://i-freepedia.com/vlc-not-play-mp4-files/ http://i-freepedia.com/vlc-not-play-mp4-files/#respond Thu, 17 Aug 2017 08:40:07 +0000 http://i-freepedia.com/?p=2445 VLC users who try to play the common MP4 file format often encounter the following problems:

“VLC stop playing MP4 files just the other day now its not the file because i’m using another mp4 player and it works great but again Vlc won’t play it and i tried to fix in Preferences but to no avail can somebody help me on this.”

“When trying to play an mp4 file the video stops and stutters at certain points but the audio remains. It stops for around 5 secs then resumes at where the video should have been, so i miss that 5 secs of the video. But it does this alot during the video making it unwatchable. Can anyone please help me?”

From above question, we can conclude that people may fail to play certain MP4 files with VLC, suffer VLC MP4 playback stutter issues. The following article will why you encounter those issues and solutions to fix those issues.

Issue 1: VLC won’t play certain MP4 files

Although VLC has included native playback for MP4 file format, however, it is well known that MP4 is a container file format, which can can use to store various different video and audio codec. VLC only includes playback support for MP4 file encoded wit MPEG-1, MPEG-2, H.263, H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, H.265/HEVC, VC-1/WMV, Theora, VP8, VP9, Real Video, etc. If the MP4 video are encoded with other incompatible codec, you will fail to open them with VLC.

Solution 1: Down VLC codec pack.

Try update your VLC to the latest version, and download VLC codec pack for this matter. There is not much to illustrate about this solution, since it is like “key-to-door” problem. Once you get the keys and you can open the certain door.

Solution 2: Convert MP4 to VLC supported codec

Directly convert MP4 to VLC best compatible H.264 codec can be the most convenient way to fix VLC not play certain MP4 files issues. Here, you can get the job easily done with our professional MP4 to VLC Converter – Pavtube Video Converter (get Mac version), which can batch convert multiple MP4 files with the resolution of 4K/2K/HD/SD to VLC best compatible H.264 codec with fast conversion speed and perfect output file quality.

Tips: The windows version of Pavtube Video Converter supports H.264 codec encoding acceleration with up to 6x faster speed on a computer with Nvidia Graphic cards that supports Nvidia CUDA(H.264 encoding).

Issue 2: VLC MP4 playback stutter

Solution: People often have VLC stutter issues when they try to play some high definition media over a network. If you are playing H.264 MP4 with VLC, you can fix this problem easily by enabling the GPU accelerated decoding feature in VLC by following the steps below:

Open VLC Media Player and click on Tools > Preferences or press Ctrl-P to open the settings window of the program. If you are using the simple settings interface, click on Input & Codecs on the left sidebar and check the Use GPU accelerated decoding box there.

http://digisns.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/check-use-gpu-accelerated-decoding-box.jpg
Check use gpu accelerated decoding box

If you are using the all interface select Input/Codecs > Video Codecs > FFmpeg > Hardware decoding instead to enable acceleration this way.

http://digisns.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/enable-hardware-decoding.jpg
Enable hardware decoding

Click on the save button afterwards and restart the media player to work with the new setting. Try playing several video files to see if hardware acceleration makes a difference in terms of playback. If it does, keep the setting enabled. If it does not, just go back to the settings to uncheck the option again.

As this solution works with MP4 video encoded with H.264 compression codec, in addition, VLC hardware acceleration for H.264 is only available for selected operating systems. While Windows Vista and newer versions of the Microsoft operating system are supported, Windows XP is not at this point in time.

Therefore, if you are using Windows 10/8/8.1/7 or Mac OS or the MP4 file you are try to play on VLC is not encoded with H.264, this solution would be useless. The good news is that you can still fix this video stuttering issue easily with Pavtube Video Converter, which has perfect for 4K/2K/HD/SD MP4 files with various compression codec like H.264, H.265, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, WMV/VC-1, Real Video, etc. You can easily use the program to compress 4K to 1080p or 1080p to 720p or even smaller file resolution for smooth playback effect with VLC media player.

Solve VLC MKV File Playback Issues http://i-freepedia.com/play-mkv-with-vlc-media-player/ Mon, 14 Aug 2017 07:59:08 +0000 http://i-freepedia.com/?p=2439 By far the easiest way to play MKV files is using VLC Media Player, however, a lot of people may have trouble when playing certain MKV files with VLC Media Player such as no sound in MKV file when played in VLC or MKV files stutter, lag or choppy when viewed with VLC media player.

No sound in mkv file

“Every time I play a mkv file I get no sound, only video. I have to right click on the screen and go to audio > audio channels > select something other than stereo then the sound works. This is does not happen for all mkv files, I have noticed that it only happens to mkv files with the a52 audio codec. ”

MKV files stutter/lag/choppy

“I have several 1080p .mkv files. All are avc1 encoded. With VLC they all open, and audio is crystal clear, but the video is very choppy.  So, is there anyway to force VLC to use a different codec, or are there recommended tweaks for vlc to increase avc1 performance”

Part 1: Fix no sound in MKV file when playing in VLC
Part 2: Solve VLC MKV playback stutter, lag or choppy problems

People often encounter VLC no sound issues not only when playing MKV files but also other file formats. When in that condition, the first thing that you can do is to check whether the player is set mute. If you’re too careless to mute your VLC player at the last playing, then definitely you’ll get no sound. What you need to do is set your VLC player to unmute state with the steps with the steps below:
Step 1. Click the speaker icon bottom right of your computer.
Step 2. Click “Mixer.”
Step 3. Unmute your VLC player, and check whether the VLC plays sound or not.

If above solution doesn’t work, then you can try to adjust VLC audio settings:

Step 1. Run VLC

Launch VLC player on PC, and click “Tools” “Preferences” to get to “Simple Preferences” interface.

VLC tools preference

Step 2. Adjust audio settings

On “Simple Preferences” interface, click “Audio” tab on the left side bar to navigate to “Audio Settings.” Make sure the “Enable audio” box is checked and then choose “Automatic” at “Output” dropdown list.

 Adjust audio settings

Convert audio in MKV to another format

If above listed 2 ways still can’t fix this issue, then the problems can be caused due to the incompatible audio codec such as like DTS-HD, Dolby TrueHD, PCM or LPCM that are not recognized by VLC. The good news is that you can easily fix this issue with our powerful MKV to VLC Converter – Pavtube Video Converter to batch convert MKV files encoded with all the incompatible audio codec listed above to VLC Media Player playable AAC, MP3, AC3, WMA or other audio codec.

Part 2: Solve VLC MKV playback stutter, lag or choppy problems

If you are experiencing choppy or jumpy video playback, it could be down to a couple of factors. The first is that the video could be H.265 / HEVC, which is a relatively new standard still under development and VLC’s support of it is experimental (as of May 2015).

The more likely cause of the problem however is down to hardware. Most content that is online in MKV is high-definition in H.264 / AVC, and if you CPU / GPU is inadequate to decode it, you will get jumpy or shaky playback. There are some solutions to this, the most obvious of which is to try other decoders.

Solution:

1. Play MKV files with VLC alternative player such as Windows Media Player, KMPlayer, 5KPlayer, Divx Plus Player, SMPlayer, etc

2. Enable GPU hardware acceleration in VLC when playing MKV files encoded with MPEG-4 AVC/H.264.

3. Transcode and compress MKV to VLC 1080p or 720p

When playing 4K H.265 MKV files on VLC, you may be disappointed to find that neither above 2 solutions can fix your problem. Then it would be much ideal for you to compress 4K H.265 MKV to VLC smoothly playback H.264 HD MP4, H.264 HD MOV or other compatible HD file formats. Here, you can still use Pavtube Video Converter, which also enables you to flexibly adjust output profile parameters such as video codec, resolution, bit rate, frame rate, audio codec, bit rate, sample rate, channels, etc as you like.

Fix VLC 4K Video Playback Choppy Issue http://i-freepedia.com/fix-vlc-4k-playback-choppy-issue/ Thu, 10 Aug 2017 08:06:47 +0000 http://i-freepedia.com/?p=2430 For users who take VLC as the main media player app, you may try to playback some 4K video shot with your 4K camera, camcorder, smartphone or downloaded from YouTube on VLC, however, one of most common issues when people encounter is the VLC 4K video playback choppy issues.

“I’m trying to playback 4K video from my GoPro in VLC and it’s super choppy, more actually freezes and that’s it. It’s not a CPU issue as the CPU isn’t pegged at 100. I tried it in the Movied and TV player in Windows 10 and it works perfectly. Any idea? I have GPU decoding enabled and I’m running a 980TI so I don’t think it’s related to that.”

“New to VLC & love its many options, however I am unable to play 4k video, doesn’t start then very choppy. No problem with other players so nothing wrong with my system or CPU. Would welcome any advice.Thanks.”

Although VLC can handle a lot of media playback perfectly, however, a lot of people even encounters video playback choppy issues when they try to play high definition movie such as 720p or 1080p movie, not to mention the large 4K video files. The good news is that there are solutions for you to fix VLC choppy playback issue with 4K or HD video.

Solution 1: Enable GPU hardware acceleration in VLC

If you are noticing choppy playback in VLC Media Player when playing high resolution video files, you may under certain circumstances benefit from gpu accelerated decoding in the media player to smooth things out. The feature in theory uses the processing power of the graphic card to lighten the load on the processor of the system.

Here are the detailed steps to enable hardware acceleration in VLC

Open VLC Media Player and click on Tools > Preferences or press Ctrl-P to open the settings window of the program. If you are using the simple settings interface, click on Input & Codecs on the left sidebar and check the Use GPU accelerated decoding box there.

Check Use GPU accelerated decoding box

If you are using the “all” interface select Input/Codecs > Video Codecs > FFmpeg > Hardware decoding instead to enable acceleration this way.

Check hardware decoding box

There are a couple misconceptions about this though that need to be addressed first before you can make an educated decision about it.

First, according to VLC’s GPU Decoding page, it is only available for H.264 streams. Second, the data is decoded in the GPU at the decoding stage and then transferred back to the player so that the other stages, filtering and streaming for instance, can be processed. This means that it can under circumstances be slower than without gpu acceleration enabled.

Last but not least, GPU decoding is only available for select operating systems. While Windows Vista and newer versions of the Microsoft operating system are supported, Windows XP is not at this point in time. The majority of graphic cards should support hardware acceleration just fine. Make sure you have installed the latest drivers though.

Solution 2: Play 4K Video with VLC best alternative 4K Video Player

Besides VLC, you can also play 4K video with the following powerful but free 4K video player.

5K Player

5KPlayer is a new and a pretty powerful video player in terms of playing the HD videos. Apart from playing 4K videos, 1080p HD videos smoothly, it also lets you play 5K videos, which is the biggest advantage of this player over other players.

Media Player Classic and K-Lite Codec Pack

Media Player Classic, also known as MPC, is an open source free media player, mimicking the look and feel of Windows Media Player 6.4. As a matter of fact, MPC on its own cannot play 4K UHD videos. It needs the help from K-Lite Codec Pack. To make things easier, you are suggested to download K-Lite Codec Pack full package which covers Media Player Classic. Despite that it can work on even the oldest computers, you still need a more powerful system to perform 4K playback.

KMPlayer

The KMPlayer at first only serves for Windows users. But in April, 2016, a Mac alpha version was released for Mac users with OS X 10.6 or later operating system. It supports for a wide range of file formats and can play videos in superb quality, including 4K UHD. According to the description in its official site, the PC edition only works on Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7(32bit). If you need a 4K video player for Windows 10, 8.1 or 7, you’d better choose another program, such as 5KPlayer.

Divx Player

This very popular and well known video player now supports playback of files up to 4K in resolution. It supports DivX HEVC video with the HEVC plugin, as well as regular DivX and DivX Plus. DivX Player is promoted as a very high quality media player and is one of the most popular choices. Some of the unique features that are well worth mentioning with this software including the ability to quickly switch between subtitles in various languages. You can also easily flick through different soundtracks in order to hear features like the director’s commentary, or the motion picture in another language when available.

Solution 3: Compress 4K to 1080p or 720p for VLC smooth playback

Can Plex Play M4V Files? http://i-freepedia.com/can-plex-play-m4v-file/ http://i-freepedia.com/can-plex-play-m4v-file/#respond Wed, 26 Jul 2017 08:17:30 +0000 http://i-freepedia.com/?p=2404 When adding movies, TV series or video files with .m4v file extension to a Plex library folder, Plex Media Server may not recognize the .m4v files and does not add them to the library. In fact, if the library contains solely of files ended with .m4v extension, the Plex may show you “No playable files” or “There are no items in this library” instead of showing you the video collection.

Why Plex not play M4V files?

Officially Plex does support .m4v files, however, it only supportto playback unprotected M4V video files. The fact is that most M4V video containers support DRM copy protection. For example, Apple encodes video files, such as TV episodes, movies and music videos which are in M4V file format from its iTunes Store with FairPlay DRM copy protection.

Solution to fix Plex not show the M4V video

Solution 1: Try to change the M4V file extension to .mp4 file extension. To do in Windows, you need to disable the “Hide extensions for known file types” in “Folder Options”.

Solution 2: Try to change the Plex library type. For example, if the currently library type is “TV Shows” (which is the library type which most likely gives the problem), try to create another new library with library type of “Movies” or “Other Videos” or “Home Videos” or etc.

Solution 3: If above listed 2 solutions can fix the problem for you, you can then switch to a more effective solution – remove DRM protection from M4V for Plex Media Server.

Here, you can easily get the job done with our best DRM Removal tool – Pavtube ChewTune, which not only assist you to effectively strip off the DRM protection from M4V TV episodes, movies and music videos purchased or rented from iTunes store, but also helps to convert the M4V files to various other popular video and audio file formats for streaming to non Apple devices such as Samsung, Microsoft, Sony, HTC, Amazon, etc or Samsung/Sony/Panasonic TV, game consoles, etc via Plex Media Server.

The recording or converting requires assistance from iTunes, so you can not turn off iTunes until the task is completed. Also, don’t let your computer stand by, sleep or lock screen during conversion, otherwise a failure may occur.

iTunes conversion

When recording iTunes files, the playing window of iTunes stays on top at the upper left corner of your computer screen as the above image shows.

2. It’s highly recommended to use iTunes v10.5.0/10.5.1/10.4.1. The program may not support latest iTunes adequately. Click to download iTunes 10 from Apple official site.
3. This product cannot convert unplayable iTunes files (damaged, unauthorized, etc.)
4. The DRM removing process may mislead your anti-virus software to falsely report virus/worm. Please ignore the report to keep on ripping.

Notice

If you don’t want the notice information to appear next time you run the program, tick off the checkbox before Don’t show this message again. Then Click OK.

The Conversion window displays task list and progress information including Time elapsed, Time left, and Generated size.

Conversion window
