    Any news on this one? Is it fixed in the 5.4 beta?

    Sorry, forgot to add that I'm using the 32-bit version of 5.3.3f1.

    I'm getting this as well in Unity 5.3.3f1. A clue though: My .ogv files do not have audio tracks, they are purely video. The offending line in my code is:

    segmentMovie[id] =;

    If think what is happening is that the first time the .movie accessor gets called it tries to init some audio data, which isn't present in my movie files, so the fmod is trying to init a null pointer. The game continues on however, and doesn't crash, so this is more of a nuisance message spamming my console log.

    I can confirm. This is not fixed in 5.3.3f1.

    LoadMoveData got NULL!


    Error: Cannot create FMOD::Sound instance for resource (null), (An invalid parameter was passed to this function. )
