MSMPEG4V2 support?

I seem to be able to play this on the iPad via Kodi, but not on the Vero 4K+. Is this an unsupported codec?

It would appear to be a M$ codec:

Hard to say if the codec could be handled via open source.

You may also want to read this:

Again mentions that it’s a non standard codec.

What does kodi.log tell you? FFmpeg probably supports it but that would have to use the CPU, ie no hardware decoding.

It’s not a common format: what’s the source of the material if you don’t mind me asking?

It should be possible to play back via software.

It’s an anime fansub, Kodi will start playing, but nothing happens on the screen.

Please post a debug log.
