Container MP3 file in FM13 vs FM12


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows 8.1

Description of the issue

Database of MP3 files in container field.

1)In FM 12 the program set as the Windows default music player was activated and played.  Does not work in FM13.

2) Old MP3 files in containers do not play in FM13.

3)When placing a "new" MP3 file in the container it plays in FM 13 (not with Windows default program). And, only plays if "Start playback automatically" is ticked.  Then, unless the playback is set to full screen the stop and pause/play buttons are intermittent.

Steps to reproduce the problem

I should note that the file was converted from an fp7 format but I expect that it should work as it does in FM12.

Expected result

clicking on container should start whatever MP3 player you have set in Windows as the default.

Configuration information

I tried this with both Windows 8.1 32 bit and 64bit systems
