I’m a beginner but I’m pretty sure I installed all the software correctly, however PS doesn’t detect MP4 video files!
VLC works fine and I am able to open MP4 files stored in the same folder with all pictures detected by PS…
LOG does not detect any type of problem…
What can I do?
Many thanks in advance,
Welcome to PhotoStructure @Cristiano_Magnani ! I’m the author.
What antivirus are you using? Unfortunately, I can only support Microsoft Windows Defender: see this for more details.
A big update is coming which includes two things that should make debugging this issue much easier: “health checks,” one of which verifies that
ffmpeg is behaving as expected and is a supported version, as well as “sync reports”, which will tell us exactly why a given file is not being imported.
many, many thanks for your reply!
You’re right, my request was lacking in information…
I installed PS on a standalone PC with Win10.
I applied your instructions, then removed VLC and installed ffmpeg+heic via Cygwin.
Unfortunately I still have the same problem: NO videos discovered!
I also checked the log files, but it seems like video files don’t exist for PS (but believe me, they do!)
The source folder is a network share (QNAP NAS) with all necessary permissions (RO/RW)
What can I do now?
Many thanks in advance and…GREAT WORK!!
what version and edition of photostructure are you running. Look on the “about” screen, it should look something like this:
|Edition||PhotoStructure for Servers|
Edition PhotoStructure for Desktops (latest channel)
OS Windows 10 (10.0.19045) on x64
OK I updated PS to the version you told me.
Now I’ll try to see if everything works well…
