      Description

      I was attempting to play an mp4 media file via the MediaPlayer on build JavaFx 2.2.4-b18 on a Windows Vista machine. The MediaPalyer is reporting via setOnError() a MediaException with the error "GStreamer encountered a general stream error".

      The JavaFX 2.2.4 System Requirements mention the need for one of the following external modules to be installed (by order of preference) to play AAC audio and H.264/AVC video:
      MainConcept H.264/AVC Pro Decoder Pack
      DivX Plus Codec Pack
      MainConcept Showcase (includes demo version codecs)

      Of these, I tried the latter two (one at a time). I tried them both with 32- and 64-bit versions of the application. I still got the same GStreamer error.
