Gspot reads a file's information, it does not convert (as far as I know)
Morgan also is not a direct converter (as far as I know) it is an editing codec so you may edit the video
What is inside your AVI (that is where you will use Gspot) and why do you need to convert?
A screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing

Hi John - thanks. I need to convert or have a codec because PE12 says the required codec isn't installed. Adobe's website says to download Morgan or Gspot.....but didn't tell me much beyond that. Now what? I'm still within my 30 days to return Elements for a refund, but the NSF recommends it and wants me (as part of a test group) to make a marketing video. I'm trying..... Could use just a bit more direction...
You use Gspot to look INSIDE your file to tell you the details of what is inside your AVI "wrapper" (like a bread wrapper... do you have whole wheat or multi-grain or ???)
Without knowing the details of what is inside your AVI wrapper, there is no way for anyone here to give advice
Read the Gspot help file to learn how to use that program
Your file is MJPEG... Motion JPEG... and installing Morgan SHOULD let you edit that file
After installing Morgan, are you able to edit the file?
