Movie files do not show, no error

edited January 6 in Library Questions

Hi I'm trying to make video files load to represent letters (motion font basically); For some reason the video files don't show. I tried following the examples but no succes. I'm also not getting any error.

Any ideas?

String str = "abbaabbaa abb aabbaaab baaab";
int let  = 0;
int wordsNum = 1;

int t = 0;

int[] wordsLength;

float kerning = 0;
float leading = 0;
float charLocation = 0;
float lineLocation = 0;

float horMargin = 100;
float vertMargin = 100;

float fontHeight = 30;
float fontWidth = 40;


import processing.video.*;
Movie Alef;
Movie Bet;
Movie Gimel;
Movie Dalet;
Movie Hey;
Movie Vav;

public void setup() {
  size(1200, 900);

  // finding out how many words are there    (important for the wordsLength array)

  for (int i = 0; i<str.length(); i++) {
    if (str.charAt(i)==' ') {
      wordsNum++;
    }
  }
  println("number of words is: ", wordsNum);


  int letCount = 0;

  wordsLength = new int[wordsNum];
  for (int i = 0; i<str.length(); i++) {
    if (str.charAt(i)==' ') {
      wordsLength[t]=letCount;
      letCount=0;
      t++;
    } else {
      letCount++;
    }
  }
  println(wordsLength);

  //alef = loadImage("א.jpg");
  //bet = loadImage("ב.jpg");

  Alef = new Movie(this, "a.wmv");
  Alef.loop();
  Bet = new Movie(this, "b.wmv");
  Bet.loop();


  t=0;
}

void draw() {

  for (int let = 0; let < str.length(); let++) {

    if (str.charAt(let)=='a') {
      image(Alef, width-horMargin+charLocation, vertMargin+lineLocation, fontWidth, fontHeight);
      println("a");
    };
    if (str.charAt(let)=='b') {
      image(Bet, width-horMargin+charLocation, vertMargin+lineLocation, fontWidth, fontHeight);
      println("b");
    };


    // Character Location

    charLocation = charLocation - fontWidth - kerning;
    //println(charLocation);


    // checking if it's a new word

    if (str.charAt(let)==' ' && t < wordsNum) {


      // creatng a new line

      if (width-horMargin+charLocation-wordsLength[t]*fontWidth < horMargin) {
        charLocation = 0;
        lineLocation = lineLocation + fontHeight + leading;
      }
      t++;
    }



    //   if (width-horMargin+charLocation < horMargin){

    //   }
  }
}

void movieEvent(Movie m) {
  m.read();
}
