Thread: vlc player wont play avi
Install MediaInfo and use it to open a file that won't play. Post the results here so we can take a look.
VLC can handle AVI fine, so this could mean one of the following.
1) Your file is corrupted.
2) Your file was deliberately made in a way so that it won't play back. Hollywood has been known to seed torrent sites with files that can't play correctly.
3) The person who made the AVI file is incompetent and they did something when making it that is causing it to not play.
Seems like 'xtor' video codec is not supported by libav, which is the reason why VLC can't handle the file.
From what I gathered googling around it seems like DXtory comes with DirectShow Decoder filters, so playback with DirectShow based decoders should be possible.
whats this libay mean what do you download or do with it
hi there, thank you for my registration!
