    i'm not sure if i am double posting here if i am i apologise but i reckon this is a different subject.I have a downloaded movie in 3 segments when i try to open the file in virtual dub i get the following error message..could'nt locate decompressor for format 'mp43' (micro soft high speed mpeg-4 v3 virtual dub requires a video for windows (vfw) compatible codec to decompress video'direct show codecs,such as those used by windows media player are not suitable.Have i caused the problem by putting the files through vso divx to dvd first?.

    hi paulsy,

    What's the extension on those files? mp43 was used by the Windows .asf format, and Virtualdub had to take out support for it because Microsoft complained. You may have to look around for a copy of VirtualDub 1.3c, the last version to contain support that codec.
