Hypothesis

Is it a Windows only problem ?

MD: it seems: I could open the file correctly in TXM 0.8.1 on Ubuntu 18.04.

The sample version of the file could be read correctly.

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/24630448/javafx-mediaplayer-error-media-invalid
gives some advice about "AAC ... decoding have certain platform-dependent limitations"
for example
https://www.oracle.com/java/technologies/javase/products-doc-jdk8-jre8-certconfig.html
gives some advice about jdk8, JavaFX Media, Windows 7, AAC ... decoder filters :

The pre-installed Microsoft AAC and H.264 DirectShow decoder filters are used by default. However, if the MainConcept H.264/AVC Pro Decoder Pack is installed on your system, then the first available AAC or H.264 decoder from the following list is used within the following order:

    MainConcept
    Microsoft
    DivX Plus
    MainConcept trial version (demo codecs from Showcase)

If none of these decoders is available, AAC and H.264 decoding will fail.
