Can’t play Mavic Pro Platinum 4K video with WMP 12
“Got my Mavic Pro Platinum several years ago. Can fly it just fine, can record lower-resolution MP4 video just fine and play it back on my Windows 7 computer with Windows Media Player 12. However, when I change the setting on the Mavic Pro Platinum to 4K video, my computer won’t play it. When I copy the MP4 file across and try to open the video, I get an error saying that WMP couldn’t open the file. Does anyone have any suggestions? Does the Mavic Pro Platinum use a different codec or something when it’s recording at 4K? What do I have to do to be able to look at this video? Is there some other codec I need to install? If so, what?”
