What CODEC is INSIDE that file? http://forums.adobe.com/thread/440037
Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... a screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing
This is a screen of the actual error. From what I can gather from the users info, it only happens with .mpg files that have been converted from .mod files using panasonic image mixer (regular /mpg files downloaded from the web work fine). As mentioned, these files work fine on all other PCs.
Here is a GSPOT capture
So when rendering video, it has those errors however when rendering audio it doesn't encounter any issues
The video file itself plays fine in any media player and I get the same errors when trying other media files in GSPOT.
Can you give any any ideas based on this info?
Where exactly did you get the files?
Start by removing all codecs and codec packs you installed on this machine that are not part of CS5.x
Whether that will solve it, you have to try, but crap like ffdshow can be difficult to remove completely. If you also installed K-Lite, then you likely are in for a nice reformat and fresh installation of OS and programs.
I'll have a go at removing ffdshow. As far as I know, no other CODECs were added to this image such as KLITE or cccp.
Ok so basically I found a version of win7 codecs on the machine. I uninstalled it, spent a lot of time going through the resigtry and searching online to get rid of any remaining traces.
No dice, it's still not working. Any more ideas?
Format and fresh install of OS and programs seems the only way. Remember to de-activate PR before formatting your C: drive.
>only happens with .mpg files that have been converted from .mod files using panasonic image mixer (regular /mpg files downloaded from the web work fine)
I would try to find a different conversion program... if Harm's idea of a drive format and fresh install does not fix the problem
Any more ideas?
You won't like it but...for standard definition work, you should be using only tape based MiniDV cameras.
