Movie not available()

Any idea why this movie won’t play? available() continually returns false. Seems like I’m missing something obvious, but can’t figure it out! is in the “data” folder.

Movie AD1;

void setup() {
  size(960, 540);
  AD1 = new Movie(this, "");

void draw() {
  image(AD1, 0, 0);

void movieEvent(Movie m) {;

Method Movie::read() auto-resets Movie::available() back to false AFAIK. :movie_camera:

Removing movieEvent() doesn’t change anything… available() still returning false :frowning:

Thank you for trying to help, much appreciated :slight_smile:

I exported the video file to a lower-res MP4 instead of high-res MOV, and now it works fine!

I’m good to go, but curious as to why the MOV didn’t render?!


did anyone look into this? I also am having trouble playing .mov files in processing - even when they are made by the movie maker tool (provided by processing).
