Error: Windows Media Player Cannot play the file.
« on: October 20, 2023, 10:39:24 PM »
Intermittently, I have the following problem with my Chronos 1.4.  It saves out
files that my computer cannot read.  When I try to open them on my PC, I
get the below error message.  If I try re-saving on the Chronos, it continues
to give the same error message; in other words it is not fixable by simply
going into the Play menu of Chronos and re-saving it as another file.
   I am scared to death this is going to happen when I am running a very expensive
experiment.   
   FWIW, I have it set on H.264 format, 99.99 bits per pixel, and 1 as "saved file framerate".
   Please let me know how to prevent this from ever happening again.

Maybe could you try VLC player then you could establish if its a player or camera issue
