Ok. This is a cry to all of you video geeks and experts like myself out there. I need some help. I just downloaded Rurouni Kenshin episodes 1-4 off of SuprNova and I am having some problems. They are AVI DVD rips so, obviously, they are pretty large in file size. Well they were encoded using a WMV3 (Windows Media Video) VFP (Video For Windows) codec so I can't re-encode them my self until I get the proper codec. I have the correct WMV3 codec because I am using Windows Media Plyer Series 9. But I need a link to a free VFP codec. I tried On2 VP6 codec but you have to buy their USB dongle to use their codec. I am already using all of the codecs that were posted in the stickied topic in this forum and it still wont work. Here is the error I am getting in VirtualDub 1.5.10 whenever I try to open the file: Couldn't loacate decompressor for format 'WMV3' (unknown) VirtualDub requires a Video for Windows (VFW) compatible codec to decompress video. DirectShow codecs, such as those used by Windows Media Player, are not suitable. So that's my problem. I also get the same error whenever I try to open a DBZ OVA: Couldn't loacate decompressor for format 'IV41' (Indeo Video 4.1) VirtualDub requires a Video for Windows (VFW) compatible codec to decompress video. DirectShow codecs, such as those used by Windows Media Player, are not suitable. So if anyone can help me, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
