how come i can't use avi files when ffdshow is installed!!

For help and discussion concerning the Windows Movie Maker software.

how come i can't use avi files when ffdshow is installed!!

Postby dragonrose44 » Thu Jan 25, 2007 7:02 pm

ok i had the same problem as i did b4. I installed ffdshow from the amvapp and it was working fine. i was happy with it. Without it, i can't play avi. files. Then suddenly, when it came to making a vid i imported an avi file into Windows Movie Maker 2. I drag one of the clips into the timeline n the program autimatically exits itself. It either exits immediatly or a box that says "send error report" and "don't send" appears and i have no choice but to close it. After that, I look at the bottom right corner of the screen where the small icons are, two ffdshow icons appear makin it seem like that was the problem. i move the curser to it n it disappears..


im prolly the only person in which this happens to...

I uninstall ffdsho n then i tried to import the clip into wmm2 n then it says

"F:\Clips\Yu Yu hakusho_episode2.5.avi could not be imported. An interface has too many methods to fire events from"


what does that mean??

importing AVI files encoded with DivX and xVid always give errors, especially WMM. try loading them in some other program like VirtualDUB or Tmpgenc Xpress.
Convert them in some other format and then try to load them in WMM.

I say amvapp isn't working in my WMM so I remove it in my PC but you shouldn't remove ffdshow. Try that VDub to convert your .avi your source clips to huffyuv then try it again to import in WMM ;) it will works.

Btw.... do you have CCCP right? :? just want to know..... no sweat ;)

Better uninstall AMV App. Reinstall FFDShow seperately. Then reinstall AMVApp and bypass the part where it asks you to install codecs you all ready have.

If you have Xvid, Divx and FFDshow all ready loaded, AMV App will go over it and cause a "confusion" of sorts. Best thing to do is to uninstall your codecs and AMVApp. Reinstall your codecs and AMVApp and bypass installing codecs for what you all ready have.

I have done this and have never had a single issue importing an .avi file in Wmm2 and I have AMVApp installed too.

as I can understand what your saying is first thing to do is install Divx/Xvid and FFDshow then after completely install in the PC re-install the AMVapp? then the AMVapp will work.


.... umm... :? well I did that before I get rid of the Amvapp in my PC but really it didn't work in mine. So I don't have any Amvapp right now...... no sweat ;)

Wut exactly is FFDShow supposed to do. I have never used it and it's the only program in the Amvapp that ever gave me problems...and that's all it did. I unistall it and everything works fine again. I have never had any problems with DivX to WMM compatability, unless that is installed.

As I know FFDSHOW is a Directshow when you using it in Vdub/Mod and you can use this in WMM but if you have AMVAPP some of your player or program will not work. I don't know why (just figuring that also) but I think there's some installed program are the same and can handle the WMM to open it so I did remove the Amvapp instead I'm having now is this:

Huffyuv
CCCP
FFDshow
Avisynth
3ivx
Mtrska

and more though I really don't have AMVAPP bcuz it crashes always my prog <_<.

then I say don't ever use it again, it's give you HEADACHE though if you can bare it or take a Tylenol it's up to you :lol:

ffdshow (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ffdshow) is a Windows DirectShow (and VfW) decoder (and encoder) for various video and audio formats. It can take the place of most MPEG-4 ASP codecs (XviD, DivX, 3ivx, etc), H.263, H.264 (MPEG-4 AVC), WMV and other video formats. It will also decode a large deal of audio formats.
Having trouble playing back videos? I recommend: Image
