Hiya …

I have an .avi file I am trying to play in divx … there is sound but no video at all … I have downloaded the codec (xvid) I’m supposed to … any ideas?

Thanks

Ian

Two possibilities :

  • Correct codecs not installed
  • Codecs are installed incorrectly.

Get the K-Lite codec pack , it has the best codecs collected.

If that ever happens, and your not sure what CODEC/FileFormat the file is using, run it through G-Spot Its never wrong :slight_smile:

All you have to do then is google for the right FileFormat/CODEC

Thank you very much … all working on my computer fine now thanks.

Next step!!!

How & what do I need to transfer those to DVD-r (not vcd) to play on my home dvd player?

I have had numerous suggestions on how to convert the avi to mpeg2 (I think) but I need one that is idiot-proof, simple & fairly easy to set up.

If you can help, youre a star!
