VirtualDub Error when attempted to open a movie with Virtual Dub

Hello,

I received this weird error message when I attempted to open my movie with Virtual Dub.

The error shows “Couldn’t locate decompressed for format ‘XVID’ (unknown)

Virtual Dub requires a video for Windows (VFW) compatible codec to decompress video”.

Any suggestion would be helpful.

Thanks.

VirtualDub Error

Couldn’t locate decompressed for format ‘XVID’ (unknown)

VirtualDub requires a video for Windows (VFW) compatible codec to decompress video.

DirectShow codecs, such as those used by Windows Media Player, are nor suitable.

If your OS is 64 – bit, (XP 64 bit or Vista 64- bit or 7 64- bit), use the 64-bit XVid codec which you can download here.

If your OS is 32 bit, you need the XVid codec for 32 bit which can be downloaded here. Use this link.

If it still doesn't work, update your Virtual Dub to 1.8 then check if ffdshow is installed in your system.Updated VD can be downloaded here.
