Default Cannot render my mp4 video file

Okay im a bit new to this so...

Anyway I recently downloaded a video file from a streaming video from a website. The streaming protocol was something like rtmp and the video file type was mp4. The download seemed to go fine, but when i came to open the file with vlc, only the audio would play. I then tried to open it with media player classic and got the message "cannot render video". I am a bit stuck but I think the issue may be related to the one in the post titled "cannot render movie" ( sorry I can't post a link I havnt been a member long enough)
but my file is a mp4 file. Is there a way to do this same thing but with a mp4 file.

Thanks in advance

Hey sorry bout the late reply...

I tried ffdshow and still got the same result. I also tried to redownload and still got the same result. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Is it a problem that the video files were originally streaming videos on the Internet???

I would try VLC media player and Splash Lite. Even if they don't render those files, they are good to have. Splash Lite is the only player I've tried where I can move the slider while playing an .mkv file with utter impunity. Doesn't disappear like VLC and some others.

Seems to play other HD content too like .mp4 and .m2ts
