No Video Engine

I have installed the latest Tracker version on my Lenovo Yoga Windows 8 laptop. I attempt to open a video file and receive the "No Video Engine" error.  The Help Diagnostics send me to About Xuggle and QuickTime.  Xuggle and QuickTime are installed successfully.  I am able to run videos in QuickTime independently of Tracker.  I have confirmed that I have 32-bit versions running in Windows 8.

Any advice?

Brent, I am working on a fix to your "No Video Engine" problem on Windows 8, and will post it ASAP, hopefully within a week.  Doug
