How can I solve a VideoReader error on ubuntu linux?

I am using Matlab 2017a on ubuntu linux 16 to read a video (mp4) but the VideoReader function gives me an error
Error using VideoReader/init (line 607) The filename specified was not found in the MATLAB path.
Error in VideoReader (line 172) obj.init(fileName);
the code I am using is:
secuence=VideoReader('completePath/vigi_prueba');
I read it could be a problem with gstreamer, when I run the command dpkg -l | grep gstreamer on the console I get answers for both gstreamer 1.0 and 0.10 installed
Thank you

Can you test to see if your filename can be found from Matlab using the "exist" function?

thanks for the quick answer. when I use the exist function it shows:
exist('/completePath/vigi_prueba')
ans =
2
And I am pretty sure the file is there, actually if I use the command
dir('/completePath/')
it shows :
. .. vigi_prueba
Is there a problem finding the file?
I'm having the same problem and would appreciate help. thank you.
