[Solved]How to Get MP4 to Play on HyperSpin Without Hassle?

HyperSpin is an animated arcade front-end for Windows for use on Home Arcade Machines, not a game or an emulator. HyperSpin allows you to create custom menu systems to run most executables with that arcade look and feel. The better point of owning a HyperSpin is that, HyperSpin can turn your arcade cabinet into a fully functional media center for video enjoyment, because its simple controls and multi-programs processing in a pretty private manner, so that no one knows what the movies center you hide in your home computer. However, making HyperSpin becoming a real cinema center is not as simple as you imaged, there are complaints of MP4 videos failing to play on HyperSpin whatever the version they own, like:

Q: "I am using HyperSpin1.4, I've got a bunch of game videos mixed between FLV and MP4. The FLV versions play fine, but the MP4 vids only play the audio..., have I missed a configuration item somewhere?"

Q: "I have the entire MAME video set from EmuMovies, but they are all in mp4 format and won't play in HyperSpin. All I can hear is the sound. It seems like I read somewhere that HyperSpin now supports mp4 instead of just FLV but it needs a specific codec. Can anyone point me in the right direction for adding this specific codec? "

If the MP4 video you made is not encoded with HyperSpin compatible codec, you will fail to load MP4 to HyperSpin for playback, or a high probability the MP4 video will not display but have audio in HyperSpin.

In addition, according to HyperSpin support website, HyperSpin only supports playing MP4 files encoded with H.264/MPEG-4 AVC (part 10) (AVC1), and native FLV files. In this situation, there is no other ways but to rewrapped MP4 to HyperSpin supported MP4 or FLV for successfully playback.
