Help with virtualdub

vbimport

#1

I have some mp4 that I need to change in super so I can use them in virtualdub. But it said after using a avi video output container, mp4 video codec, and a mp3 video, virtualdub said that I need a video for window (VFW) compatible codec to decompress the video. What should I use to change these mp4 in super so I can use them in virtualdub.


#2

window (VFW) compatible codec = You need the Windows Media Player 9 Codecs
if you are using Super to encode mp4 select DIVX Compatible with all players it’s the top option. :slight_smile:


#3

I am still getting the same message.


#4

K-Lite Mega Codec Pack available from lots of places will fix you up.

Although, you probably should tell us what you’re trying to do … there might be an easier way :wink:

Super will re-convert the video into something else, and the audio, and if you are just cutting/splitting, there can be programs to do this better than re-converting the entire file :wink:

I have some mp4 that I am trying to convert so that I cut them with virtualdub. But virtualdub keep telling me that I need vfw codec (video for windows) to decompress the video. If it something better to do this with, prefer freeware, to do this with let me know.


#6

VirtualDub is not able to manage WMV files for copyright issues if I’m not wrong.

For what I know, you can’t use at all VirtualDub with WMV files even if you install all codecs.


#7

Yup, that is so.
The creator mentions that in the README.


#8

so no matter what I change these mp4 into they will not work in virtualdub. I now have avs video tools.

You could try somehow splitting the video & audio streams out & remuxing to avi with avimux.
