Unsuported File Type

Post by Wolfgangh » Fri May 21, 2004 6:42 am

I am trying to make an AMV to the Warcraft III FMV's and whenever I try to import them it says that they were recorded in an unsuported rate and then lists the ones that are suported, 11kHz 22kHz etc, does anyone have any idea how to remmedy this?

back up ur file before doing this

1-download the program HEX EDITOR here http://download.com.com/3000-2352-86756 ... ag=lst-0-7

2-open the vid thats giving u probs with hex editor and look for a line that says DXGM and change it to DIVX(if there is no DXGM line look for something else that can be changed).


i had a similar problem when trying to open HOMEWORLD2 videos and thats how i solved it, i dont know if this will wok, just try it.

There's usually a couple of different search functions. You want the one that searches for a text string, not hex code.
Another pointless post!

I hate to be a pain but the one that BDaWiD linked to only has one search function that is to search for all kinds of crazey ASCII stuff? Does anyone have a hex editor that can search for text strings?

Man, it's been awhile since I did any programming type stuff, but I'm pretty sure that ASCII is text, or at least the translation of raw code into text.

It's probably what you want. And heck, if it's the only option, may as well try it.

ASCII is the translation of raw numbers into text via a standard table. Not all of them are printable, and this creates no end of issues (resulting in binary and ASCII modes in FTP, among other things).

I think that's probably one of the main reasons Japanese text doesn't display in the American version of Windows.

And ASCII was only one method of translation, if I remember correctly. But at least it's the most commonly used one.

Fortunately, all the others but binary and ASCII fell out of use. Aren't standards wonderful? There are so many to choose from!
