    1. MKV- the video may have a variable framrate.
    2. couldn't lacoate a decompressor for format "YYYYY" (unknown)

    Id search for them mate before ever installing a codec pack. codec packs can cause a lot of playback and encoding troubles for usually movie files!

    To Conny119 - Hi you said in a post around 14th July that you managed to convert an mkv to mpeg with TmpGenc. Is that correct, if so you must be a miracle worker and I would be soooo grateful if you could tell me how you did it. I have had a wretched mkv file, around 608MB, and have done just about everything with it, including almost wrecking my pc. In the end I burned it to a cd rw and have kept it in the hopes that one day I can do something with it

    my bad, when i said it will eat anything, it will.

    i never encounter such videos, as i don't download, on a narrowband.
    but i'll look into it.


    i believe you ;)
