PRoblem with render active viewport
« on: August 11, 2017, 01:47:28 PM »

My system has intels embedded graphics, OS  debian 9 with OPENGL drivers. I am following tutorial "ICME Workshop: Molecular Dynamics with LAMMPS by Andrew Ferguson" and when I try to make a movie using any of the available file formats, as I click on render active viewport it pops the following error message "Error in video codec: failed to load external libraries" as you can see in screenshot including settings on right hand side. HELP

Are you working with the newest OVITO version 2.9.0?

To find out where the problem is coming from, it would be helpful if you could also try the same operation with an older (or newer) release of OVITO. Please let me know if you get the same error message.
