Some one pleeeeeze I am loosing the will to live. I have been hunting round now for a solution to my problem
I have an AVI (several in fact) DIVX XVID with AC3 Audio (according to GSpot) All play fine in Windows media played and PowerDVD so can only assume I have the relevant codecs. (GSpot also confirms codecs are available)
I am using TMPGenc Xpress but when I create the MPG there is no audio. I have tried creating audio only and this also has no sound. After trawling thru several ‘help’ forums I have downloaded Virtualdub/virtualdubmod and Nandub with a view to separating out the audio.
When I try to load the avi in all of these I get the message
[!] Couldn’t locate decompressor for format ‘XVID’ (unknown).
VirtualDub requires a Video for Windows (VFW) compatible codec to
decompress video. DirectShow codecs, such as those used by Windows Media
Player, are not suitable. Only ‘Direct stream copy’ is available for this
Any guesses guys?
