Windows 10: Windows 10 not adapted with Fraps videos

    Windows 10 not adapted with Fraps videos

    I recorded a gameplay video with Fraps, as usual. Then I wanted to watch it, but instead of WMP, Movies & TV app launched and tried to run the video. But all it was showing me was a black screen with gameplay audio.

    So I tried running it with WMP and after a couple of seconds WMP gave me an error saying it encountered an issue.
    I also tried Quicktime Player, which failed as well.

    I've never ever had this issue back in Windows 7 and I upgraded to Windows 10 yesterday. So the issue is not Fraps. I mean it kind of is, since it is not optimized with Windows 10 yet, but why can't I run it with Windows Media Player?

    All of my other encoded videos (With Adobe Premiere Pro CS6) work perfectly with both players.
    I actually just encoded the latest not-working video. It works perfectly with both launchers as well.

    Is there a way to fix this? Because my temporary solution is just watching the videos with Adobe Premiere Pro.

    Install codecs?

    (I have no idea which video format Fraps uses.)

    Well, there isn't a Fraps version that's explicitly stated to have Windows 10 support... however, I'm able to use the current version to record things, I use Dxtory for gaming, but I can record videos in VLC using Fraps... you can't use the desktop capture part because of what I mentioned at the beginning... Beepa apparently is working on a version that supports Windows 10.
