I'm sorry it took me a month to follow up on this. I had to get
my software to the point of basic functionality under python 3 and
wxPython 4 before I felt like I had time to install and explore
I have concluded that the wxMediaCtrl does not work at all on
MacOS 10.15 Catalina.
I upgraded a test volume to Catalina, 10.15.1. I installed the
current python 3.8.0 and wxPython 4.0.7.post1. I then installed
the wxPython Demo. The wxMediaCtrl demo reports it is unable to
load ANY media file I ask it to load, including the sample MPEG-1
video that comes with the demo as well as MP4 files. (I confirmed
that all files work fine with the QuickTime player on Catalina
outside of wxPython.)
I also installed a version of my own software that was packaged
for distribution on an earlier version of MacOS. It uses Python
3.7.? and an earlier wxPython 4.0 version, maybe 4.0.4. This
version installs and runs on earlier MacOS releases but cannot
load any video files on Catalina. The file load fails in exactly
the way I would predict in my software based on the behavior of
the wxPython Demo.
Has anyone gotten the wxMediaCtrl to work on Catalina? Robin??
Any suggestions or ideas?
