Moviefile not found even though names are correct and all files are located in the same folder?

Hello,

I have seen a post similar to my problem but unfortunately that post was not helpful. I am encountering this code:

pygame 1.9.4

Here’s what my folder with all my files looks like:

Here are the file names in the excel file:

Any help would be great! I’m hoping this is all just a silly error on my end.

Thanks

I SOLVED IT. I followed these instructions (https://www.howtohaven.com/system/show-file-extensions-in-windows-explorer.shtml) to force windows to show file extensions for my videos.

I manually entered the .mp4 so windows registered that as .mp4.mp4. I went in and removed my manual .mp4 and ended up with the solution :slight_smile:
