I'm developing a simple multimedia website using XAMPP in Windows 7. I started off in Wordpress and moved to static HTML and I noticed today while testing that a lot of my mp4 video files were no longer playing. When I looked into this further it turned out that any video file bigger than around 40 megs would not play at all.
Suspecting a problem with the player, I navigated directly to my video folder in the browser, I got the "Index of /win10/video" page where you can click a to open a file directly. Any video I click that's under 40mb plays instantly in my browser, while others that are bigger give me "connection was reset" error. I cannot right click and download the bigger video files either.
I've tried increasing limits in php.ini but it didn't seem to help.
I also found this thread on another forum that seems to indicate the same problem but there was no solution posted - http://webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/43159/xampp-unable-to-serve-files-larger-than-30mb
Strangely, there's no problem on my Windows 8 box.
Can anyone help please? Thank you.
