This is driving me up the wall. I can’t get the VLCMovieStim stim type working in any form on my Windows 10 computer, even though it works perfectly fine on my mac.
I have installed the latest version of VLC, and ensured it is the 64-bit version to match my PsychoPy install. I’m on PsychoPy standalone 2021.2.3, though I’ve also gotten this behavior with a separate python environment where I manually installed psychopy. I have ensured that PYTHON_VLC_LIB_PATH has been added to my environment variables and points to the VLC folder with libvlc.dll (C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC), and that the same path is also included in my system Path variable. That covers every fix I’ve been able to find and it’s still not working.
Is there any way to make vlcmoviestim work better “out of the box”? Is there something I’m missing? Any insight as to how to get this working would be appreciated at this point.
