Announcing the new Datavyu v1.4.0 with enhanced features, bug fixes, and a new video player for Windows!

We are in the process of migrating away from this forum—feel free to browse existing help topics. For new support inquiries, please reach out to us via email at [email protected]


I am using datavyu on a Windows pc and have been facing this error since late December 2014.

I have tried -to use other video extensions such as .mov, .mp4 -to use other versions of datavyu -to set steps per second but none of these have worked.

All the video files are in the same folder as datavyu and were working fine before.

No matter what I do, the video player screen is a blank grey though the controller shows that the video is playing.

Please help.!

I am including a screenshot with this post.screenshot

Do your videos play in QuickTime?

Do you think you could send me a sample video that is not working on your computer? I would like to do some testing to see if I can find different results.

My email is [email protected] Can you email me so we can discuss a way to send the videos?

None of the videos play irrespective of the type, I even tried general videos downloaded from the internet.

Videos do play separately when I run Quicktime or VLC standalone.
