I have been searching for a week now and have d/l these follwing codecs and no luck so far:
this is the only format I know of that I have a problem with...I recently (within the last 2 weeks) formatted mt HDD and I never had this problem before now...any help is greatly appreciated...
I am not sure how to delete this post...but i have found a great explanation of how to set everything up...i’ll post a link:
this is a “newbie” tutorial step-by-step on how to play any video you may come upon...
mika’s post in that thread is the best advice, minus the “newest 5.xx codec”.
“i think this is all you need: FFDShow, AC3Filter and [don’t need this]newest DivX 5.xx codec[don’t need this]”
Indeed. You only need FFDShow, AC3Filter, as you will find FFDShow decodes XviD, DivX by itself!
If all else fails, you can try VideoLAN (www.videolan.org).
I guess the afterdawn.com’s standards have lowered because Praetor is a moderator and he’s recommending installing Nimo. Nimo is never needed to be installed.
Thanks to whoever sussed this!
This is definately the best option for a computer illiterate like myself
I have been trying to play numerous films in different players for weeks to no avail
I was a bit dubious downloading all these codes suggested as I when I normally do anything like that I cause total chaos and as it is the works computer the boss is none to pleased.
So I downloaded the AC3 filter and FFDshow and I could hear.
I have used both Xilisoft and Cucusoft software to rip my DVDs to 512 288 (16:9) with 44kHz/128kbps steero audio to WMV files. They look and play amazing on my Samsung NC10 10.1 netbook. The file size is roughly 1.5GB per 2 hour movie. Both provide great results. Cucusoft is more user friendly, but I’ve had interoperability problems (read: bugs) on my WinXP systems. Xilisoft is less user friendly, but it works perfectly.
