    It says its fixed, but I still get it on running 2021.2.0a9.

    You say its fixed, but what are the methods for a new developer like me to take action. Whats all this about? I may still build, buts a warning on windows 10 setup. What does this mean in simple terms and how do I eliminate the warning? What to do-?

    I am having this issue as well. My videos were working in 2020.1.6f1 and upgrading to 2020.2.2f1 videos just stopped working. I am on Windows 7 as well ... I also know that it does work with my friend who is also working on the project. He is on Windows 10, but just saying upgrade to Windows 10 isn't an option right now.

    Guys ... could you please look into this issue ?
    Its not that this is just some minor nuisance or something - quite the opposite:
    It simply means that Unity as a whole is not working as advertised

    Windows 7 compatibility is broken on the player side and on editor side as well...
