- To preview a video, double-click it in the Grid view of the Library module to enter Loupe view. Then, click the Play button in video playback control bar. Click the Pause button to pause playback.

Thanks for your answer. But the problem is that after double-click in the Grid view of the Library module, there is NO video playback control bar. You can see that here:
In LR 5 I still had this control bar with the Play button. So usually I know how to do. What could be the reason, why there is no control bar? How can I play my videos?
I had the same issue. Through reading on Victoria Brampton's blog I found a link to another Adobe forum where Adobe engineers found a problem and solution with a .dll file. Basically you replace the .dll file on your computer with one you get from an Adobe download. It looks and sounds harder than it was.
That worked! Thank you very much!!
You are Welcome
I have similar problems. It starts with some videos showing a grey screen in the library view. If I move the mouse over it, it will show date and length but still remains grey. The video can be found in a folder and Windows 10 plays it well. Needles to say, that it does not work in slide show too.
I have two windows 10 PCs and LR behaves the same.
I tried to troubleshoot and have seen the following:
On one of the PCs I can not purge the Videocache, it hangs. The quoted location of the raw cache is not existing. It points to where it sits on the other PC, I may have copied settings that upset LR now. The position of the the Videocache is not given in LR.
I am confused about if and how previews are created for video files. I can force it to do so by selecting a file and select " build preview". That takes forever, just for a 2 min clip. Does LR need these previews? Are they created on the fly while playing a video? This might be the root cause as video previews will easily mess up the system. Did I set something wrong? The one of the two PC is faster, 3.4Ghz Dual core. It does work a bit better with videos and shows more of them. So it is CPU related, the other PC has a SSD but that does not help.
Xmas is waiting and so is my family movie show...
