Nto all mp4 use the correct codec for Captivate. Try to re-encode (H264) with the Adobe Media Encoder which is available with Captivate.

Hi there!

 

Thanks so much for the reply! I added the file to the queue in media encoder - and it looks like it is already in H264 Match Source - High bitrate. Can you think of anything else it might be?

Having the same problem and I realized it's about the audio encoding.
I converted the videos with Media Encoder using AAC audio format and everything was OK after, I was able to import the videos into Captivate.
