    Synaptics 'Show Video' doesn't play video properly

    Hi, I was just looking at the Synaptics features in looking at a poster's issue, when I found that 'Show Video' opens a window as if to play it but only blinks 'Opening media'.

    Now the videos are wmv's and mpg's and play correctly in my default player if I open them from their folder explicitly.

    The player window opened by Synaptics is not my default player. It is something run by rundll32.exe.

    Click image for larger version.

    I haven't tried reinstalling the Synaptics driver - yet.

    Any thoughts? Thanks!

    So I wonder if anyone can confirm that these videos work for them in Win 10 x64 please?

    I've tried uninstalling, redownloading from manufacturer's site, reinstalling.
