This video file cannot be played. (Error Code: 224002)

  • Has anyone had issues playing video content. Screenshot 2019-07-25 at 21.56.15.png

    With the exception of Youtube, most websites report an error of being unable to play the video, e.g. see screenshot showing website https://archive.org/details/Stingray.Complete/Stingray.01.+STINGRAY.avi.

    I have confirmed this issue occurs in 62.0.3331.99. I have tried to play the content with and without the VPN enabled. The same errors occur in the Beta version 64.0.3388.0.

    I’ve also tried installing extensions media player and media plus to test if there was a codec issue but neither extension helps.

  • @albertchong I do have this same issue. At first I thought this was because I updated to the Catalina Beta version, but I may be wrong if you have this issue on an older OS version.

    I noticed this when trying to play MP4 files, but it seems like other formats also fail to play. Most MP4 files play just fine for 1 second and then just freeze.

  • @arasthel I’m on Catalina too but I’ve made sure that Opera has full disk access.
