I realize that there is already a thread on this topic, but my question wasn't answered quite the way I wanted.
I previously had DivX as my codec. I imported .avi files into Vegas 7 and it played the clip like it would for any other video file. A few days later I obtained a file which was in .rmvb format and because was I desperate to view the file, I went on a rampage and downloaded random codecs (whatever program I had [perhaps codec, too] didn't support that video file). After that, .avi files didn't work in Vegas. It worked fine before, but how come it doesn't now?
Can someone help? I have this video converter, but i's being dumb and I can't seem to work with it. Also, I wish to not convert each raw file before I edit it into a personal video.
As a side note, I'm not so sure if I have the DivX codec still installed as the first new codec I installed requested that I remove DivX. However, I still have two DivX icons on my desktop. DivX Converter and DivX Player.
How do I make .avi files work again?
