VirtualDub 1.8.8 worked fine for me up until now. I now get this message even trying to open videos I made with VirtualDub. I never had ffdshow when all went smoothly so I don’t know what’s happened during the last month. I think updating Firefox is the only software adjustment I’ve made.
So I got the same msg:
“Couldn’t locate decompressor for format `XVID` (unknown)
VirtualDub requires a videro for Windows (VFW) compatible codec to decompress video. DirectShow codecs, such as those used by Windows Media Player, are not suitable."
I have no clue what I’m doing, I downloaded all of these: Xvid, virtualdub, Divx, ConvertXtoDVD, Winrar, and all I wanted to originally do is put a movie back together that I downloaded offline. It’s an AVI movie, and was split up into two separate cd’s. As you can tell I am lost... Any help?
Have the same issue on a fresh install of Windows 7 x64. Tried the codecs listed for the x64 but no luck. Removed them and installed cccp from here http://www.cccp-project.net/ and it solved the problem.
Argh! I’m having issues!
So, I’m running XP service pack 3, 32-bit, and I can’t get VirtualDub to open my AVI’s for the life of me.
I’m getting the same message everyone else is, but I haven’t gotten a solution yet.
I’ve downloaded and installed both xvid, and ffdshow, to no avail. Any thoughts?
Just downloaded the application and all’s well
