Hi everyone, hope all is well!
A friend bought around some avi files which are Supranos episodes and wanted me to burn them onto dvd for him,
now when i tried nero, it wouldn't work, so i tried pulling the avi files into pp2 & encore and it only bought in the actual sound, no footage,
my friend said that even windows media player wont play them unless i use Divx.
What does that mean, if i use divx, it's just another player isn't it, like a Quicktime player.
Isn't avi, avi? any avi file should be able to be pulled into any software that excepts avi files (unless ofcourse the files are damaged or compressed wrong or something)
also what worried me about these files he bought around were that they were so small for avi, half hour episodes taking up virtually no room on the harddrive, almost as if they are just sound files, however play them on a divx player and they work fine! hmmmmmm
can someone enlighten me on what i'm missing.
and maybe explain exactly what a codec software is? Isn't it just re-formatting?
