I’m trying to play a movie, and it gives me this exciting message ...
“Warning: HD Codec not detected. Please get the correct codec from www.hdmi2.com”
That’s all well and good, but going to that site gives me nothing to download.
I’m running Vista Home Premium with Vista Codecs. Any idea where I can get this HD Codec from and will it interfere with Vista Codecs.
I’ll appreciate your help. Thanks!
Sorry about the vandals who litter the board... That’s inevitable with a board that allows anonymous posting. I cleaned that up though.
Now, about your post. I’m VERY surprised you get any message from playing a video, especially one that directs to a URL. What format was the video in? (To be frank, I’m wondering if you actually ran an executable.) And what program did you use to open the file? I’m also thinking it could be a wmv or mov file with DRM, and the license popup wants to redirect you there to (potentially) download a virus.
If you’re wondering, run gspot or avicodec on the file to find out. If it’s a quicktime file, and you happen to have an older version of quicktime (pre-7 or pre-7.1 I think) you can go to window, show movie properties, and it may indicate something like a url or flash track (those usually contain popups).
Can you feed the file into gspot 2.70 and paste to us what it says?
I don’t even trust that url (hdmi2.com)... It redirects to icreditexperts... What does that have anything to do with video? Looks like spam and scam to me.
Tried downloading a torrent from piratebay of the Cloverfield, the video runs like mentioned above, only telling you this in three lines (It smells fishy to me) by leaving your e-mail adress? I guess this is the anti-piracy guys or just hackers. No way the video will turn around after a codec from viewing 3 minutes of information and after a “codec” it would dislplay 1hr30minutes of HD movie? guess not:
Warning: HD codec not detected!

I’ve already got the same trouble with the “http://codec.uploadvid.net/" site... The message is absolutely the same !!!
I think that behind theses sites there are people who just try to scam people, it’s obvious.
The whois information are the same too :
I hope someone will find a way to clear thme for the torrent network... these people are shit !
hi guys got same message from a golden compass download b ullshite i use vlc player it will play anything this was a simple avi file and got that silly message if your dling and it is slightly larger file with slow dl rate quit that sh it 8 times outta 10 its a spyware adware virus wot eva them dirty scumbags want to give you or steal from you .wish i could get there real address never mind there e mail they need drowned in a bath of urine .help us and we ll help you come on ...we re a happy family that share wot eva falls in our laps so to speak thats the whole point of our dl sites not to rip people off happy viewing every one and get rid of them suspect files
Got the same message as well, seems to be an ahole that is downloading the original movie off the torrents, re-encoding it, and sending it back up under a bogus “legitimate” name. Is there no way the torrent sites can track who is doing it and delete their accounts?, Especially since they are impersonating the original encoding ppl. I just download all the movies twice now. Sometimes, if you just download the sample file, it has the same message, thereby saving you a lot of wasted time.
It seems that we all got hosed. You only get fished if you give them your info, my advice don’t take the bait. Delete the file and try again with another user. There is a bright side to all of this, at least they did not report us to the FEDs.
On another note; has anyone ever been fished? That must suck.
Don’t bother with any video you get that message on! I ran Gspot on the new Rambo movie after getting the same message and found that I do have the codecs necessary to play the video file. No surprise there since I can see video of the message. If you legitimately did not have the codec, the media player itself would tell you, not the video! There is a good chance that these files are provided compliments of agents of the movie industry to discourage people from downloading movies. Just be patient, and if you get a file with this video message, just delete it and move on.
