I have installed Xvid 1.22, when I open an Xvid encoded .avi with virtualdub 1.9.5 x64 in windows 7 x64 rtm
I get the following error message.
Any idea how I can fix this?
Virtual Dub Error
Couldn’t locate decompressor for format ‘XVID’ (unknown)
VirtualDub requires a video for Windows (VWF) compatible codec to
decompress video. DirectShow codecs, such as those under by Windows Media Player, are not suitable.
Virtualdub x64 – win7 x64 rtm VFW error
The error you mentioned is generated because of the missing codec in your player. These errors always occur cause of the missing codec. I think you need to download the missing codecs, but try these steps.
Follow these steps:
1) Click start, all programs, ffdshow, VFW configuration.
2) You will find Decoder tab at the top, click it.
3) Scroll down to xvid and set it to libavcodec.
4) Apply the setting and close the VFW config.
Hope this helps you out
