Adding randomized video stimuli

Hello everyone. I am trying to create an experiment with 2 blocks that involve randomized video stimuli. I have seen videos including excel files however when i tried it i got many errors that unfortunately i cannot resolve. I know it has to do with the video stimuli i am adding and its option…size of the video etc but i really cant resolve it. Thank you in advance for your time!

What i tried:
I created the excel file with the file name/name of the stimuli+.mp4

What went wrong:
File “C:\Program Files\PsychoPy\lib\site-packages\moviepy\video\io\”, line 285, in ffmpeg_parse_infos
line = [l for l in lines if keyword in l][index]
IndexError: list index out of range

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:
