Windows 8.1?! Its possible something that ancient wont have the h264 codec installed.

Try downloading the KLite codec pack or similar.

VLC plays just about anything with its own codecs. It's more likely that the PC doesn't have the processing power to play the raw video which is why it's hung up on the first frame.

Upload a test video to youtube and then try to play it at 1080p - if it works there then its your computer is too old - you can try Kodi as well to play the video.

I'd have thought even an ancient setup like that could play H264 (or at least with stuttering). h.265 no but he mentioned h.264 specifically.

(Unless he got it wrong and he meant the 10 bit h.265 files).
