    The path should be something like...
    VIDEO: (S) --> AVI Splitter --> ffdshow MPEG-4 Video Decoder --> (R)
    AUDIO: (S) --> AVI Splitter --> MPEG Layer-3 Decoder --> Morgan Stream Switcher --> (R)
    If it renders but doesnt play that would be indicitive of a codec conflict -- which is why it is important to uninstall all yer codecs to start with :)

    This thread is for PLAYBACK issues not for encoding problems.

    Okay, I have some trouble getting the NIMO 5.0 Build 8 or 9 codecs.

    I'm trying to play an .ogm file but I've been at it for hours and I still can't get it to work. Can someone help me?

    Sorry for that ,
    I thought that this topic is related to codecs because with adding and removing codecs it apears
    and in past I had it and fix it , but now I dont know how .

    Gspot:
    Video Path: (S) --> AVI Splitter --> ffdshow MPEG-4 Video Decoder --> (R)
    Audio Path: (S) --> AVI Splitter --> MPEG Layer-3 Decoder --> (R)

    Video Codec: 4cc Xvid
    Audio Codec: 0x0055(MP3) ID'd as MPEG-1 Layer 3

    However when i play the .avi file in any player wmp9, wmpclassic, wmp6.4, powerDVD the video frame is jerky/choppy but the sound plays normally
    i've tried uninstalling ffdshow (as that's the only codec pack i use) but it still has the same effect
    pls advise
    thx in advance

    Right i just followed your configs on the first page and it still didn't work the video is still choppy/jerky
    DivFix error check came out with 0 errors
    Oh and Indeo Codec always stalls and crashes when it "searches for netscape components" or something of the sort... i don't have netspace o_O i am running windows xp
    pls advise
    thx in advance

    To play MKV files, head on over to http://packs.matroska.org/ and if you followed the guide on page1 then download the Matroska Pack Lite. Installing that should eb sufficient to play the MKV files

    ash5137
    What are your system specs?

    That's odd.... the installation should "seem to" stall for about 2 seconds and pop up a success window and yes, for WindowsXP you need the codec because for some demented reason, it doesnt come with XP. Which Indeo codec did you have problems with?
