I have encoded several MP4 videos. On the same computer, all of them play on Windows Media Player, except for one. This one plays on VLC. I tried to reencode it several times, but to no avail. What could it be?

Camtasia Studio 8.1.2 comes with four default profiles that will export to MP4 and the ability to create custom profiles that can utilize MP4 with settings you can change as to how it will encode. Did you use the same profile for each project? Which profile/settings did you use?

I produced all videos using the same profile. These are the settings:
Frame Rate: Automatic
Keyframe rate: 5
Pause at start: Disabled
Bitrate Mode: Quality Mode
H264 Profile: Baseline
H264 Level: Auto
Video Quality: 50 %
Audio Bitrate: 128 kbps
Audio Format: AAC
Watermark: Disabled
HTML: Disabled
Table of Contents: Enabled
SCORM: Disabled

Hey there,
 Are you using another program to attempt to reencode it? Or are you reproducing it out in camtasia?

No, I encoded using the settings above some videos from different tracks inside the same project.
Then, when trying to play those videos everything worked except one video that does not start in Windows Media Player.
