MSC2 Codec

posted in Video Codecs


I have a file that It is a video ( AVI Extension). WMP11 was not able to play it. These applications (AVIcodec, MovieCodec Codec tools y VideoInspector) show that I need MSC2 codec to play it.

I can not get it from Internet, Can you help me about it ?

What does gspot say for container? (use version 2.70a). Also, what does it say in the codec box? (just making sure you typed it correctly MSC2 and not MSS2).
Finally does it say anything in the metadata box? Do you know what the source of this video is? (digital camera or camcorder model, or name of application that made it - where did you get it?) reply



I got this information from this application.

From Gspot v2.70a, I got same information about codec MSC2.nothing in the metadata box. I got this video from Bank and I dont know how they take video.

I think then it’s probably best to ask the bank what software it used to make the video (if they don’t mind telling you).
Chances are it’s a video from a surveillance system, and those tend to have proprietary codecs (to avoid tampering with evidence). If you can find what software or program made the video, you can probably go on the website and download the player for those kind of videos.

Creo que entonces es probablemente mejor preguntar al banco qué software se usa para hacer el vídeo (si no les importa decir a usted).
Es probable que se trata de un video de un sistema de vigilancia, y los que tienden a tener codecs propietarios (para evitar la manipulación de pruebas). Si usted puede encontrar el software o programa hizo el video, probablemente pueda ir en el sitio web y descargar el reproductor de ese tipo de videos. reply
