Greetings, I am trying to import a AVI movie to my Director
project. Whem I create Director Projector and burn the project to
Cd I get a screen that provides the followng message. "Video not
available, cannot find vids:dsvd decompressor"
I reformed a standard import.
Any ideas or solutions will be much appreciated. A am at
crunch time with this project.
It means the Intel DSVD codec is not available for the
playback engine ... DSVD codecs are not necessarily standard codecs
on all amchines since they are specialized for use with video
a) you have to have the required codec installed on the
playback machine and there are only a handful of codecs for AVI
that will work on all machines by default
b) If you are using Director's default playback service for
AVI, it does NOT use the WMP engine, but rather the older
DirectShow/Mplayer32 engine and that engine does not support many
codecs other than the old standbys
QT media, FLV media, and to a lesser extent, Real media would
be better choices since they rely on the actual player engine
rather than a dated rudimentary technology on Win systems.
Alternatively, if you can afford the extra $, the Mpeg
Advanced Xtra by Tabuleiro would likely be a really good
investment, since that one will work with the native engines
installed for MPeg video playback.
