Hi folks,

I have installed Shark007's Vista Codec Pacakage (VCP) 5.1.4 and VCP-X64 1.7.0 successfully on my laptop that has Vista Home Prem., 64-bit.

Q1: Do I need to install AviSynth 2.5.8 separately if one of my Video Programs looks for it? And would installing it conflict with VCPs?

Q2: Can I still install "XviD 1.2.1" and "DivX 5.2.1 Pro" for my other Video Porgram that needs them even though I have VCP? And would installing it conflict with VCP?

Q3: I am not sure if this MEncoder problem or lack of Codec on my laptop ... .WMV video files that have been coded with "WMP v8" with Codec name of WMV2 MEncoder crashes while I try to convert them to AVI using a MEncoder GUI? Any thoughts on this!?!?

FYI ... .WMV files that have Codec Name: WMV3 and converted with "WMP v9 (VC-1 Simple/Main)" MEncoder coverts them just fine to AVI!

Q4: Do I need some additional Codec installed on my laptop to get that program working with any .WMV to AVI conversions!?!?
