OK, I’m done with proprietary video players. As of this second (your fault, T )
If you send me a video, make sure that 1. you’re searched YouTube for the same filename and send me that URL. Failing that, 2. I can drag and drop the video onto the VLC Player shortcut.
If it won’t play on a click in a browser or in the email link in Gmail–trash can time.
Thanks for listening
