    I have just downloaded Avi2dvd and when attempting to convert an avi file i get an error

    Avisynth open failure:
    AVISource: couldn't locate a decompressor for fourcc xvid
    (c:\avi2dvd_temp\Aviscript_Script_file.avs,line2)

    When I downloaded Avi2dvd I also installed Avisynth but using the defaults during install.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Loaded Gspot and tested the avi file and the required codec is installed.

    Did you try to convert it with the VSO program?
    What type of AVI is it?
    What information did GSpot show under 'Video'?

    Yes tried the VSO program but got lots of error messages as follows

    Video packet dropped due to error on frame NNNN

    Gspot shows Codec: XVID Name: XviD 1.2 SMP MPG4

    Codec(s) are Installed

    The file is an australian movie called Kenny

    I can't think of any good reason why the two conversion programs would have a problem with this file.

    If you wish to scan the file for errors,run VirtualDub and drag the file on to the window.
    Click 'Video' > 'Scan video stream for errors' and see if it reads a problem.

    VirtualDub most recent stable
    http://virtualdub.sourceforge.net/

    BTW does the file play ok on the PC?
