    Hey guys, I've been coming to this site since I can remember, back when it was like VCDhelp.com and its been soooo helpful...but anyways, I'm having some issues with my codecs (I think). A lot of my video files have a VBR and wouldn't properly load into VirtualDub or VirtualDubMod unless I used a DirectShowSource AviSynth template. When I did that everything worked great, but I suddenly started getting an error saying that VirtualDub had stopped working. The problem signature is at the bottom... I thought that it may be an issue with my codecs because I had installed some packs not realizing til later that it was a bad idea. So I uninstalled all my packs that I could from the Add/Remove Programs thingy but when I went to Codec Sniper it showed like 170 codecs still there. A large number were "broken" but I couldn't get them to delete. Can anybody help me with this? Also, I don't know if this is the same problem or something different but a lot of my videos, xvid mpeg-4 codec, are skipping like 30 seconds and the picture gets weird colored for a couple seconds. Any help with that problem will also be very much appreciated. Thanks!

    you might try re-installing the broken codecs and then uninstalling if it's not needed. gspot can also try to re-register codecs.

    It sounds like the codec packs have done some damage. They also don't uninstall well most times. You could try running Codec Sniper in 'Safe Mode' and do your deleting there. Or try what aedipuss suggests.

    If all that fails, a OS reinstall may be the last option. Another good reason to stay away from codec packs.

    I tried gspot and had no idea what I was looking at. A lot of the codecs said "other" but none said "problem". I'll try using Codec Sniper in safe mode, thanks for the help.

    Aside from cleaning up the broken codecs to keep your system orderly, it shouldn't really be needed to get your apps functional.

    For each video that you are having playback problems, open the video in Gspot and see which codec is needed for playback. Then simply install/reinstall the codec(s) that is needed.

    The same applies for VirtualDub. Try unininstalling and reinstalling the application and whichever codecs/addons that it requires to read your files.

    The new experimental version of VirtualDub (1.8.0 experimental) is supposed to be able to handle VBR, though I'm not sure how well.

    The main big change in 1.8.0 is enhanced audio support, including:

    * Support for reading and writing VBR audio with correct sync.
    * Input plugins can expose true VBR audio.

    * Support for multiplexing in raw MP3 tracks.
    * Support for selecting the source audio track when multiple audio tracks are present.
    * Built-in audio decoding support for -law, A-law, MP2, and MP3 audio.

    [breaking changes]
    * The old support for reading "striped AVIs" has been removed.

    [features added]
    * Alternate audio streams in an AVI file can now be chosen.
    * Added fallback audio decoders for mu-law, A-law, MP2, and MP3 formats.
    * Video files with audio tracks can also be used for replacing existing audio.
    * MP3 files without a WAV header can now be used as input.
    * Added support for writing AVI files with VBR audio.
    * The default frame rate for loaded image sequences can now be changed in Preferences.
    * The time knob can be dragged during a preview.
    * Mark-in and mark-out commands now work during preview.
    * Added new "time stretch" audio filter.
    * Increased precision of ratios for audio stretch filters.
    * Added "zone plate" test video mode.
    * Changes to the input color format are now reflected in the preview panes.
    * Added support for non-standard 15fps MPEG-1 video streams.
    * VBR warning for AVI audio streams can now be toggled in Preferences.
    * Filters: Can now be toggled on and off in the filter list.
    * Filters: Fast YCbCr cropping is now supported.
    * Filters: Flip vertically, grayscale, and resize now support direct planar YCbCr processing.
    * Filters: Added "convert format" video filter.
    * Filters: Redesigned color popup; hold down SHIFT. Now works after stretching video window.
    * Script: Implemented string+int, string+long, and string+double.
    * Plugins: Input driver plugins can now delegate video decompression to VirtualDub.
    * Capture: Added /capfilealloc switch to preallocate capture files from the command line.
    * Hex editor: Now supports Unicode filenames.
