YUY2 playback problem

posted in Video Codecs, viewed 16k times Page 1 of 2[1] 2 next › last »

Hello,

I recently downloaded a movie but can’t seem to figure out how to make it work in MediaPlayer. I had a problem earlier with another movie but found out that I needed a DivX codec, so I got it and it worked.

This time, however, on the laptop it says “AVSEQ01” which is seemingly the name of the file, and that MediaPlayer has found an unknown error. Web help doesn’t help me at all, obviously.

However, on my desktop, MediaPlayer claims that I need a YUY2 codec. I’ve been looking around for this but can’t seem to find a clear answer. Can you help me? What codec should I download? I’d appreciate any link.

Cheers,

Chris reply

Did you ever find the answer to your Q about the yuy2 codec? I am having an issue with this codec as well. My video will play...however, it is inverted. Its like watching it from the backside of a two way mirror. reply

Yep, use the application PowerDVD, it seemingly has all the codecs you need to play the movies. Works fine with me, and you won’t have to try out a ton of different codec packs. reply

PowerDVD comes with an MPEG2 capable codec. This is for playback of SVCD and DVD content (MPEG2 format).

The “AVSEQ01” file name is indicative of a VCD or SVCD. Your system whould have no problems decoding VCD as Windows already some ready for this, whereas a proper MPEG2 codec needs to be hunted down sometimes, and that’s where PowerDVD comes in.

Now that PowerDVD is installed, you should be able to play MPEG2 content in media players like Windows Media Player 6.4, 7 and up. Even players like Zoom Player will play MPEG2 correctly. PowerDVD should no longer be needed because even if you uninstall it, the codec will be left behind :-).

Keep in mind that PowerDVD doesn’t play ALL formats. A media player that can do what PowerDVD can do, plus more, is VideoLAN (www.videolan.org). This player doesn’t install codecs, it only uses filters for playback:

VLC (initially VideoLAN Client) is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It can also be used as a server to stream in unicast or multicast in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high-bandwidth network.

That’s not all th formats it supports too.

VideoLAN can also be used on Mac’s. reply

Try installing KLM codec and/or Nimo codec. Also try to get the latest win media player. (note that some media player codecs might mess up your media player functions like the image will be upside down or mirror.)

If you using windows 2000 I would also suggest that you upgrade to XP home (no need for XP pro). reply

I have recently been given a movie to play on my computer, saved as a windows media file. When playing, sound and picture work fine, but the sound is approximately 5 seconds ahead of the picture. It says 'error when downloading codec' and says you need YUY2, however i cannot find anywhere to download this from. You mentioned to get powerDVD, is it possible to download a shareware version that will still have the required effect? reply

I have a similar problem in that I get jumpy video and no audio with some AVIs of recent TV shows. I get the “need YUY2 codec” in MediaPlayer. I tried the huffyuc codec but didn’t have much success. Does anyone have solution for watching Video captured on Win Media Centre using YUY2 on an older PC running Windows 2000? reply

Hello,

That AVSEQ.DAT file is a vcd format file.

Most mpeg1 codecs should play it.

Have fun reply

I suggest use mplayer. It plays everything simply because its origin is not from windoze.

Hello,

Wow.. I have the same problem with the AVSEQ DAT file. Actually, I have lots of DAT file and they all play on windows media player but this particular VCD wouldn’t play and I think i’ve looked through every website. Here are the answers I got and what I’ve have done.. :-)
1) window Media player should play it = I have windows media player and it say the file is not supported. They said the 9 series will play and i’ve installed that and still didnt play.
2) PowerDVD = I have it and it doesn’t play.
3) XP Codec pack :I downloaded it but it still didnt play.
4) There was a guy who said to just rename the file from AVSEQ.DAT to AVSEQ.mpg = I have done that as well..

Whatever should I do? Please please please... reply

I have ever had the same problem too and my installed K-Lite Codec Pack did not seem solve this trouble. I suggest you to try ACE Mega CoDecs Pack. It provides more than K-Lite, including YUY2 Codec. To get this codec pack, you can visit :

Hope this can solve your problem as well reply

do NOT download codec packs... they blow. when you need a codec, download it.. don’t try to get everything at once. secondly, VideoLAN client has the ability to flip the video.. but you don’t need to do that. all you need are new Windows Media Video codecs..use them with VideoLAN and you’ll be set. http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/forpros/format/codecdownload.aspx .....simple as that. reply
