  1. I am having problem with opening an avi file. The name of the file says it was compressed with x264 codec. But i cant able to play it in VLC media player. I tried installing x264 codec windows binaries from VLan websites. But that doesn't proved any better. I also tried opening that file using avidemux and Virtualdub but no use. Can anyone diagnose the problem?

    Load the file into mediainfo and post a pasted text info here.

  3. You can also open it with MKVMergeGUI and resave it as an MKV. MKVMergeGUI should show you the type of video and audio streams within when you open it.

  4. VLC has no problems opening x264 encoded video in AVI files made with VirtualDub, both with and without the "virtualdub hack". I suspect the video isn't really h.264 in AVI.

    Methinks there ought to be a sticky note stating all queries re video files should always have a mediainfo report pasted as part of the post - time and time again I see these posts and requests for a mediainfo report and then nothing! I see the same on the Popcorn forum and the Beyonwiz forum. The crystal ball is still cloudy!
