Thread: Vegas 6 not opening certain .avi's

  1. #1

    Default Vegas 6 not opening certain .avi's

    Looking for suggestions..

    i have both divx and xvid codecs installed but none of the .avi's i download will open in Vegas..it will open other .avi's that my friend put on my computer when he built it recently but all the stuff i download just wont work..

    i've enabled 'allow 3rd party codecs' and also tried allowing use of the windows codec..but to no avail...

    i even tried deleting/re-installing..

    oh btw..the audio opens but not the video

    help!

    did some testing and it turns out vegas doesnt like any of my xvid files..

    and it will only open DIV3 encoded files..and not DIV5 which most of my files are encoded in..

    what can i do?

    Silly question but do you have the div5 codec on your system?

    do the video's play independant of vegas?

    I have a billion codecs, well lots, and I canoot get xvids onto the timeline. All divxs are fine. I suggest using vitrualdub to tanscode the xvids into something else editable.

    i think i have div5 on my computer...i'll check..

    i use VLC media player which plays pretty much every file imagineable without the need for codecs so maybe i dont!..

    will transcode my xvids from now on cheers :p

    It is annoying that vegas cant open xvids, it can cope with just about anything else. If you or anyone finds a fix I would love to know.
