Importing Problem

Postby McDoogle-san » Sun Feb 11, 2007 1:34 pm

When i import or try to import a file, it says unsurported audio bitrate which was normal with DivX etc but now it wont import the video either, it just doesnt, doesnt say anything extra. Ive tried it in movie maker and movie maker is alot faster than what it was with divX.

or any editing program for that matter.
click the pic, it'l tell you how to resolve this problem.
(I assume that you mentioning divx means that the footage you are trying to import is encoded with divx)

but what codec was used to encode your video? (many codecs can produce .avi files)
if you don't know, get gspot from the pic in my signature

Need to know a few things.

1) What codec is your AVI file encoded in?
2) Where did you get your AVI file?

gspot is able to analyze your file and tells you what codec it has been encoded with, so no, gspot isn't a codec

you're going to have to re-encode your footage.
if you don't have a lot of space, I reccomend making small clips in virtualdub/mod and re-encoding those instead of entire episodes.

you should use a lossless codec like lagarith or huffyuv

and you really should buy the dvds (if avaliable in your area), you'll get better quality and some other good things too

links (if you don't already have them)
lagarith
huffyuv
VirtualDubMod
