1080p videos do not play as startup movies, and there is no indication as why given by the editor. 1080p videos will work with media framework. There is no documentation either, so there is no indication given why these files are failing to play.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open a project and go to the Movies setting in project settings
  2. Add a startup movie that is 1920x1080
  3. Launch the game from editor as a standalone game


There will be a black screen instead of the video playing.


Movies that are 1920x1080 will play as expected.
