Cutscenes haven't worked as of Oryx V1.10.1

Since I installed the V1.10.1 patch, all cutscenes are just black screens with a mouse cursor. Black screens don’t end on their own, but hitting “ESC” exits the cutscene and the game continues as normal.

Relevant error in Player.log cites a WindowsVideoMedia error 0xc00d36b4 while trying to read whichever cinematic file is supposed to play. Log has the following note:

Context: Setting media type for first video stream
Error details: The data specified for the media type is invalid, inconsistent, or not supported by this object.
Track types:
Audio Track, type: %10%16
Video Track [1920 x 1080], type: H264

The cinematic videos play fine in VLC. I’ve also tried using VLC to rewrite one of them (in the same format, same filename), no change.

Windows 7 machine.


Same issue here.

It appears that they have fixed and broken things at the same time. Windows 7 are now getting the cut scene bug. Especially those that have disabled updates. Other quick fix that screws some users.


Latest update, latest nVIDIA drivers, just re-downloaded from Steam, Win7 x64, no anims played, used manually ESC key to enter missions. Everything else works.

Turns out that screen Windows 10 users are affected as well.

Then it really needs a hotfix, cant be something big, codec reading or so.

I can view the cutscenes just fine outside of the game.

Just to confirm, went to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Phoenix Point\PhoenixPointWin64_Data\StreamingAssets\StreamableCopiedAssets
and can play every video in VLC

So in-game decoding is trouble, not codecs within Win7 x64 or Win10
