SEDG codec

I have the solution for everyone who want to use this crappy camera with MAC:

GET RID OF IT! sell it to a Windows user, this camera is not intended to work with mac; i bought it by mistake, i’ve try hard to convert AVI into MGPJ but AVI is a dead format and no even windows i believe supports AVI anymore. Whatever software that is free just doesn’t work. I don’t want to risk buying a real converter for this piece of crap camcorder.
I paid 200 dollars for this samsung and i’ll be glad of selling it for 150 if someone out there want it.

don’t loose your time boys... reply

Hi.

I just purchased a new sony VIO that runs on Windows Vista. I’m trying to play videos from my digital camera, Samsung S730 and the sound from the video won’t play. What codec do I need? reply


just you use the perian plugin, works like a charm.

Hey Guys,

The solution I am using is to edit each file (which is timeconsuming) with Hexeditor (google it). In hexeditor, simply search for SEDG. Replace SEDG with XVID (DIVX places a little DIVX icon in the bottom right hand side of the screen while XVID doesn’t) and save the file. It will then work properly in any media player and can also be edited (I had to do this to edit files in Proshow).

If anyone knows of a batch way of doing this please post.

Best regards,

Dave. reply

I wrote a small program to convert the Samsung miniket Sports camcorder video to normal divx. The annoying Sedg codec is now a goner. It is written in Ruby, run it in a shell like this( if you call the file a2d (remember to chmod 755 it):

./a2d inputfile outputfile


#!/usr/bin/env ruby
def convert_avi(source, target)
puts “Determining codec type”
input = File.new(source, “r”)

bytes = input.read

if bytes[188..191] == “SEDG”
puts “Writing #{source} to #{target}\n”


bytes[112..115] = “DIVX”
bytes[188..191] = “DIVX”


output = File.new(target, “w”)
output.write(bytes)

puts “Done.\n”
else
puts “File is not SEDG codec\n”
end
end

if ARGV.length != 2
puts “Usage: a2d inputfile outputfile\n”
else
convert_avi ARGV[0], ARGV[1]
end reply

Download eRight Super and convert the AVI to a MOV.
You should be able to edit the MOV on your Mac. and with Premiere Pro on your PC reply

I downloaded the codec, but it is not working.

I installed it, and the “Codec installed” message appeared, but when I attempted to watch my videos on Windows Meadia Player it said I needed the codec.

I tryed installing it again, and it said it installed, but when I tried to watch my videos again it again said that I need a codec.

Help, please! reply

Are you absolutely certain SEDG was the codec you needed? If unsure feed the file into gspot or avicodec to find out. Gspot may also tell you if the file was truncated (incorrect length), which may be another reason why the file can’t play, even if you have the right codec (if that’s the case use Media Player Classic to play the file instead of WMP). reply

I recently bought a Mac. I was really disappointed with the Miniket camera - even when I could see the files on Windows.. Now all I see is a white screen and sound. Can anyone give me a simple guide on how to get this working? reply

Get 3ivx. It should be able to decode it. reply

I dont have a MAC, but I’m having a major problem with the sedg codec so I found this forum while looking for answers... and I found something that will (hopefully) help you MAC users:

Jesse Andrews (no, I don’t know him, he just put his name on the site) created a C++ program to “de-sedg” avi files... well, you can read about it and get his free, open-source program here:

http://overstimulate.com/projects/deSEDG

Even though it doesn’t help me, perhaps it will help you?
