video sync alternatives (Windows)

Post by Hunterwolf » Fri Apr 24, 2020 7:38 pm

Hello there,
I haven't been able to import videos into Ableton Live 10 Suite for two months now. I have tried all the options suggested by the guide but none of them seem to work anymore.
Today it seemed that Matroska (Haali) + FFDshow had started working again but after restarting the PC (Windows 10) they didn't work anymore.

Do you know alternatives, even external and third party ones, to synchronize a video in Ableton Live 10? Any Max 4 Live device? Anything?
This is driving me crazy, and I'm starting to get worried because I have deadlines and I'm currently stuck :|

Did you ever find a solution? If so, what are you using? Thanks in advance!

Check out vidplay a vst video player. It's the only sane solution I could find. HOWEVER it does not handle tempo changes as apparently the way Ableton transmits that information is non-standard. Anyway I've been using it to do video game design sound mockups and it's generally great.

This is driving me up the wall. I used to be able to work with video no problem in Ableton and now I get a black screen with "Could not decode video file", with both mov and mp4 files.
One step forward and 5 back with Ableton.

Another post on the forum mentioned specifying Integrated Video as preferred GPU for Live 10 (if you have an Nvidia card and nvidia control panel).

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=224675&start=30

I tried this and suddenly I could import video into L10. Took a bit longer to appear on the timeline after dragging from the browser and while fisrt selecting the video, I still got the "corrupt file warning", but it did work.

Not sure if it can help you but thought I'd mention it.
