(I have written alot about this, sorry ^^; I hope you'll have patience enough to read it...)
I have problems saving videos in mmv 2. It won't work! I have divx, xvid and CCCP codec installed, I have tried CCCP with both the original setting and these settings that Kariudo recommended another user who had problem with mmv:
you go start, all programs, combined community codec pack, video decoder settings
go through the codec list and disable ffdshow for all the codecs you have (click on the boxes that say libavcodec, you should then see a few options, one of which is disabled)
you'll probably be disabling divx, xvid, huffyuv and mpeg2
do the same for audio decoder settings
when you're done with that, you may need to click the CCCP settings icon (in the same place as decoder config)
disable decoding of anything you have (checkboxes, similar to the decoder config)
dsiable avi support for haali media splitter and click re-register all filters
When I try to save first it estimate the remaining time for some time, then it starts counting minutes, it's high numbers it counts, like 100 mins and upwards. Then it either loads for ages or a message comes up that says that I cannot save the movie file to the specific location. It also tells me to verify that the source files are in the original location and be sure that saving location is still available and that there is enough disk space.
I have check all those things and there shouldn't be a problem. I have had these problems with mmv before, in the first months when it was new it's works completely fine saving videos. But then after a while it starts bugging. The only option I have had was to save it as a DV-Avi file and then resave it. But that way I lose quality and I feel that I shouldn't have to do that.
Do you have any suggestions what I should do? I have heard that people say that divx/xvid dosen't work well with editing software and that you should encode your clips in a program like virtualdub, but then the files becomes huge, isn't there another way around it? Should I change the settings, download/unistall a codec or something else that will make the video saveable without losing too much quality? If the "solution" I have used (Saving as DV-Avi then resaving it) is the only way then I guess I have no other choice, but at least I wanted to ask you for advise first.
