Just replace the “ and ” by " ...
Rename your file with .reg extension.
Execute and it will work. reply

I too had an IV50 format file which I could not play with either WMV or MP(v11). Running XP (SP3; 32bit) I eventually used an early “XP compatible” version of Quicktime (v5.?) and a plugin to watch it.

I then wanted to convert it from a near extinct format to something a little more extant. Without any real expectations I put it through Super C, the multi-functional media conversion app. It converted the IV50 file into an MP4 file without a murmur and I was then able to watch it using WMV.

I have been very impressed with capabilities of Super C ever since I 'discovered' it a while ago. It handles a miriad of audio and video formats and it’s free!

Another alternative is you can use RIVA on windows to convert the files to FLV format. Most Indeo 3 files are that ancient they aren’t very high quality anyway. reply

"Microsoft has included various versions of Indeo in its OS since Windows 95. But when Windows XP SP1 was introduced, they removed Indeo 4 and 5 for unknown reasons."

I believe this was because there were a number of security vulnerabilities in the Indeo Codec that could be exploited, particularly if you were using Windows Media Player.

The exploits go back quite a few years, but Microsoft was still quite concerned about them as late as 2009.

Google “indeo video codecs & exploits”. reply

Unfortunately, in my case it’s doesn’t works. I do something wrong. Please would you be more specific, about adding these lines? I added this commands like alphanumeric values, writing the first part of every line in the name field, and the second in the information field.

Thank you very much.

So I have videos ofmy now deceased grandmother which were taken with a labtec webcam pro and they are all indeo 5 file format. Do you know of any way to convert these to modern files that will play on quicktime and the new media player. It would be nice if I could convert it to WMV and/or .mp4 files to share with the family. reply

PLease help keymaster

Worked for Vista 64 after editing the Wow6432Node. Having tried installing everything I could find without any luck, this worked! Had a sinking feeling about losing priceless family videos.

Now need to find a way to convert the .avi into a more suitable format that Divx can play - any ideas? reply

What/where is the “normal indeo video 5.11” that you used?
There seems to be a lot of indeo video 5’s out there.
Thanks.

btw, I have windows 7/64 bit and vista/32 and xp/32 to fix.
You are the only one I have found with a windows 7/64 fix, so
thanks for that!! reply

Thanks a million Keymaster. These Sting Values worked.
Excellent knowledge of registy values :)

I notice once I viewed the old Indeo IV50 formatted video, I was sadden by the low quality :(

I converted to MPEG2 and found it better. Converted to WMV and found that even better.

I’d suggest if people are finding no answer to get Windows Media Player to play these old dinosaur Indeo IV50 files, probably better to convert them anyways. I found the converter I use, Any Video Converter, (A freebie ;), has a mini player which is able to play the IV50 format. Check it out: http://www.any-video-converter.com/ scroll until you see Free Version - unless you want the pay version that Rips!

It’s easy to use. Hope this helps also. reply

Worked here too, thanks!
BUT:
you HAVE to create these entries manually!
Otherwise with a regfile, it did not work! reply

In the case of a 64-bit OS, you will need to put them in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32 (note the additional Wow6432Node in the path). This is because there are (for all intents and purposes) no 64-bit codecs, so you need to put them in the 32-bit part of the Registry.

Thank you VERY MUCH!!! It works on Win 7 x64 now. reply
