Hi PsychoPy community!
Thank you in advance for your help!
I have a script that has been running without issues since 2019 until recently. In the past few weeks, there is a 1.4-1.6 s load time for each movie stim that had never happen before. The load times do not vary based on file sizes. I am quite baffled, since nothing has changed (i.e. no new hardware/software changes, other than windows updates, which I know sometimes may break things).
The videos are .mov files, I tried to use mp4, wmv, none of the other file format helped. Videos play fine on Windows Media Player without the load time issue.
I am using psychopy v3.2.4 on a Windows 10 computer (it’s a beefy VR/gaming computer that is only 1.5 years old). I tried upgrading psychopy to the newest version, but the experiment won’t run there.
Any idea what went wrong, and how I can fix this?
Thank you so much!
