MP4 files not playing in Windows 10


Established Member
When I try to play mp4 files in Windows 10, I get an error "Element not Found". This applies to all mp4 players I have on my PC except one. I have a Roadhawk Dash Cam and the mp4 files play OK in that.

Searching the web for this error give a bit of a confusing set of answers.

I wonder if anyone on this forum with Windows 10 is also not able to play mp4 files.

Not sure when this first happened, but there have been a lot of updates to windows and MS Office in the last week.

Any help is appreciated.
