Are you on a laptop with multiple GPUs (e.g. Intel and Nvidia)?

I am on Windows 10 on my laptop (Intel CPU, single Nvidia 940M, Intel GPU should be disabled) and videos (including Shimmering Particles and local files from my SSD) are not working. Any ideas?

Okay, so: I went to the Nvidia Control Panel and set the GPU usage for wallpaper32.exe to INTEGRATED (Intel graphics card) instead of the dedicated Nvidia card and now they're playing. Try it, guys.

Hey,
Yeah that seems to have fixed it for some others, I was going to suggest it to Makinata (if they were on a system with Nvidia Optimus).

I'll add this to the FAQ later, since it seems to be a necessity.

Cheers

I'm not sure if I can help then, but which graphics card do you have? Do you also have an Intel + Nvidia graphics card combination?

And what exactly happens when you try to play a video? Can you post your log.txt from the application directory?

Cheers

And you have already tried forcing Wallpaper Engine to the integrated GPU? I guess you could also try to force it to the Nvidia one just to be sure.
