    Hi,

    When I try to open an XviD-movie in VirtualDubMod I get the following error :

    "VirtualDub requires a Video for Windows (VFW) compatible codec to decompress video. DirectShow codecs, such as one used by Windows Media Player, are not suitable."

    I searched the forum and they all say I need to install the correct codec, but I do have the correct one because I can play the movie. I also tried Avicodec to find out which ones I have and which I have installed. They are all there

    Maybe there is a solution for this before I start to install more codec (and taking the risk nothing will work...)

    thanks,
    Frites

    Yes frites, they just said that the codec that plays the movie is no good - VDub wants the codec that could MAKE the movie. Koepi's your guy.
