Video playback with animation codec on Mac The decoder required for this media cannot be found

Hi
Trying to simply playback a video using ofVideoPlayer encoded using the Animation codec but get an error

‘The decoder required for this media cannot be found.’

I’m on a Mac.
Is there a separate codec install or download on the Mac in order to playback videos using the Animation codec?

hi.

the animation codec is deprecated and not supported by AVFoundation.

better to use ProRes or h264 instead.

If you need alpha proress 4444 has it, I did not try it with OF.

prores 4444 with alpha works
