  • If you used the HTML5 setting, then you ended up with an encoded MP4 file with H.264 video codec and AAC audio codec in it.  Windows Media Player may not be able to play that back on your machine due to a missing codec.  Are you able to play back other MP4 files with H264 and AAC in them?

    Have you tried to play this same file back in another player, like the VLC player or Quicktime for Windows?
