    DivX codec not recognized


      I have recently installed Premiere Elements 10.  I went to import videos from a folder and I get this error "This type of file is not supported, or the required codec is not installed."  After searching around the internet I installed the DivX codec (from their website).  How do I get PE10 to recognize this codec??

          Welcome to the forum.


          DivX is seldom supported, but some users claim success Importing some flavors of it into PrE.


          I just convert DivX, which is a streaming-delivery format, to DV-AVI, or other format, in a conversion program. I use the older DigitalMedia Converter 2.7.


          Good luck,
