    I tried with vlc, k-light, windows media player and i cant play video. Can someone tell me what I can use to watch the video? I couldnt even upload it here bc it kept failing. I'm guessing we cant upload videos here. This is what I get below:

    Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.

    Have you tried setting one of them as default for mp4's? You might also try converting it to a different format.

    Try a standalone player such as VLC or MPC-HC.

    Also, open the file using MediaInfo and post the file specs.
