Usually the error message contains a very good hint about what is going wrong. Could you please post the exact text of the error message?

Uploading/Playing Videos

Hi Sebastian,
Here is the error message I always receive whenever I tried Playing a Video stream:
"Pins cannot connect due to NOT supporting the same transport
($80040266). (&80040266)
"

Please make your explanations/Guidelines as to a "little child" because I am NOT a Computer Expert.
Thanks.

I think you need some DirectShow codecs for this video type. This is the piece of software that decompresses a video so that it can be watched on the screen.
When you click on that video in the schedule with your right mouse button, and select properties from the popup menu, SongBeamer will open the properties dialog. That dialog should have a section with the name "Codec". What does that say? What is the file extension of the video? This is the last letters of the filename like .avi, .mpg, ....

Hi Sebastian,

There was no "Codec" section as I opened the Dialogue box of the "Properties" of the Video.

The file name has the Extension ".MTS"

Hope to hear from you soon.
Stay blessed.

*.MTS is a bit tricky because it is a relatively new format. If you have Windows 7 then you should be able to play those videos after doing the following steps:

Please download and install the file MatroskaSplitter from the following page:
http://haali.su/mkv/
The download link is in the upper right.

The *.mts file we have also have ac3 encoded audio. Please download and install the AC3 Filter from here (Lite edition should be enough):

Operating systems older than Windows 7 do not support this video type. But you could still try those steps.
