@amir

Not certain this is a bug. Release notes for video plugin say:

node-webkit can play WebM
(https://www.scirra.com/construct2/releases/r171) although manual doesn't state the same(!?).

I just tested by converting your file using VLC to webm and it played fine in NW.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

I guess node-webkit doesn't support H.264. It is in the documentation though that to cover all platforms you will need at least one free format source (Theora or WebM) and one H.264 source. You should also only test with the latest beta releases, particularly since we've updated node-webkit in the latest betas. Closing as not a bug.

Well in that case;
I will wait for the stable release and also convert the file.
Thank you for your help. :)

I am sorry but I only have 2 formats: MOV & MP4 and when I searched I did not find any program that can change these formats to WebM & OGV without destroying quality of my video. Is there any solution for this :?:

@amir - no, you either have to have the original uncompressed video, or you have no choice but to transcode between compressed formats which can degrade it further.

Yes we have the uncompressed video.Our team uses Adobe After-Effect but it does not seem to be able to export to ogv and webm.
