Hi Guys and girls! I am going on tour with a band tomorrow and just got the videos from the designer. Turns out none of them will play with Modul8. The files are mpeg 4 Files and size varies from 20-60 mb Pr video. There is no problem importing the files into Modul8 or put effects etc on them, but they will not start playing. In other words they are stuck in the first frame.
Hope someone can come with some pointers on how to solve it. Picture added is a screenshot of one of the videos and its information.

First things first - never use MP4/h.264 files. They use a lot of CPU to decode each frame. Best learn how to setup a quick batch conversion to either PhotoJPEG or ProRes quicktime files. Its a good thing to know and will solve problems when it happens again. I'd recommend just buying Compressor from the App Store but there are free alternatives.
Converting the MPEG files to a supported format is the most simple solution.
Add a tutorial here: http://www.videoconverterfactory.com/ti ... -mpeg.html
With the same steps, you can convert MPEG to popular video formats.
I also use convert.co to convert my files. But it's too expensive for me.
