I have downloaded the Wolverine motion poster and placed it into the Cache/Movies/tt1430132-The Wolverine folder. I have also renamed the mp4 file to match the name of the folder (tt1430132-The Wolverine-motionposter.mp4). I placed The Wolverine into the Favorites list and restarted MP. Once the program restarted, you can see the movie's tagline at the bottom, but all I get is a black screen. I have even gone in and associated the mp4 extension to use mplayer as its default. Mplayer has no issues in playing the file outside of MP. Below is the excerpt of the log file where it tries to launch the motion poster.

I assume that when I get this working, the movie trailers will work as well. Then again, maybe not. I'm actually not nearly as concerned with the trailers as I am with the motion posters. I guess it COULD be the system that i'm using. It's OLD. I just did a fresh install of Win 7 Pro on a Dell Dimension 2400 with 512MB RAM, onboard video and 2.53Ghz P4. I might have some RAM that I could throw at it. It will only support 2GB.
Are there any other video codecs or programs that I should install that would help solve this issue? Not sure what all MP relies on in order to play movie files from within itself.
