Well just to check the obvious: are you certain the video is Indeo Video 5? Open it with gspot (http://www.headbands.com/gspot). What’s the reported fourcc (four character code)? Should be IV50
Does gspot report anything wrong with the video (particularly corrupt avi header - click on the text for more info - usually it’s incorrect file size). If file size is incorrect, use Media Player Classic to play the file.
If you installed Indeo 5, what player are you using to play it? If you have the codec installed, only Windows DirectShow players like WMP or MPC will play it. A player with built-in codecs independent of Windows (like VLC - which BTW does NOT have a decoder for Indeo 4 nor 5) cannot play it.
Last thing is, it’s possible you had the codec already installed, but the registry information wasn’t there - I don’t think the installer checks that (it only checks the file is present) nor attempts to overwrite the installation if the file is already present. If that’s the problem, run the registry editor. Click start, run, regedit. Navigate to the key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32
Make sure Drivers32 is selected on the left. On the right scroll down and look for an entry named vidc.iv50
If it’s there then ignore this and consider me stumped. If it’s not there then click edit, new string value. Name it vidc.iv50 then double-click it and for value put ir50_32.dll reply

su-ke!

registry stuff worked like a charm
so... the only problem was that the players couldn’t find the decoder?
sounds like an installer flaw to me. reply
