FMP on windows wont play my video files



     I have a mac version of my database which plays apple videos (M4V files) but my windows version does not play on a windows xp machine which my friend has but it does play on my windows 8 machine.

     The message that my friend gets when trying to play the video from within filemaker pro is '*The file you are attempting to play has an extension (mv4) that does not match 

the file format. Playing the file may result in unexpected behavior.
Do you want the Player to try to play the file? 

Although, when he double clicks the file from the folder its plays. It just wont play from within the filemaker pro software.


Any ideas how we can resolve this problem?

     Any help would be appreciated :-)
