Video Texture Not working

So I imported my .mov video file, created a texture and material, but when i hit play in the media player it stays on the black screen. the counter at the bottom acts like its playing but i get nothing but a black screen. any ideas? thanks!

Try changing the materail hook up node from base color to emissive color.

Yeah i tried that already. still just a black sphere. Do i have to change the .mov format?

you might. I ahven’t personally worked with video files yet but if they are like audio files then you have to have a set format and all.
