Where avi files previously worked fine, I now get a message "Video Stream attributes could not be determined".
I realised belatedly that this is probably due to software I installed in an effort to rip something about a month ago, but uninstalling the programs did nothing to help and there are no system reset points from before I installed the software, so I can't check to see if that was really the issue.
I have updated divx codecs and unticked the box in preferences for using external codecs but to no avail.
FourCC Code changer also doesn't fix this particular problem.
I've found a lot of comments on forums suggesting the best option is to convert my avi files using huffy or lagarith codecs using virtual dub program.
Could someone give me a quick 101 on which buttons I need to press in Virtual Dub in order to do this? I'm a tad confused by the options. I have also downloaded the lagarith codec, but I don't know if I need to install it somewhere before it'll work.
Thank you! I'd be ever so grateful.
P.S. My system is a PC running on Windows 7 (64bit version)
