If you still don't understand lossy vs. lossless, look at it like this:
The episodes you have were encoded using a lossy codec (presumably h.264). While not necessarily noticeable to our eyes, there is an amount of data loss. Hence the term "lossy." Our editing programs, Vegas in this case, are not good at decoding lossy codecs. This is why we need to change it to a lossless codec (huffyuv/lagarith), which doesn't have any data loss. Vegas will be able to read these files with much less difficulty which should make editing smoother.
Hope that helped. :nose:

Try UTVideo (x86 link in there) instead.

...Wait.
Remember, that is just a lossless codec. You're just supposed to select it when you're encoding in virtualdub/avidemux/vegas/whatever applies. It's not a standalone program you run...

ohhh ok sorry. lol. So say im using the avidemux. I use that program and for the video I clicked Huffyuz and use that lossless codec for it?

btw thanks for the help. Sorry if I have been driving you crazy with this. I have only just started thinking about quality in clips.

No, you should select "UTVideo", if the voice did show up. If it didn't, then I'm guessing avidemux doesn't let you use UTVideo for encoding... I don't use avidemux myself, so I wouldn't know.

It worked the clips arent spazzing anymore. Well I used it for video huffyuv and the file type is avi but im going to try and mess around with it. I have yet to try it in Vegas yet. Well I opened it and the thing froze on me when I wanted to use that file So I wanna try use VDub on it to cut out some of the scenes I don't want then try use the clips in vegas.

I wish I could remote desktop your computer.

I just want to reach through the internet, take control of your laptop, and do it for you.

Properly labeled screen caps at each step would be a start.
