  1. I was given an avi file to view. When I play it with vlc, a pop up states that it doesn't have correct codec (GAVC)

    I have used all of the above players and all do not play.

    I have also downloaded klite.. still no luck.

    This file was created with some sort of security footage program (no idea what software was used)

    Any thoughts/ideas?

    Presumably it's a directshow codec. Try Windows media player.

    After reading through the thread I found the codec from geovision at: worked with Windows MP.

    Felt a bit safer using this than a file from a codecs site (on the company computer).

  10. If this video was from a pc-based DVR, the backup typically includes about 1180 files, which include the proprietary player (EZViegLog500.exe) along with other required files for playback.
    Otherwise, if all you have are the video files, you might want to try to play with FFMPEG (or WinFF for an easier to use GUI).
    Another workflow would be use use VideoConcatenator if you have multiple files to join them and rewrap them into a non-proprietary format.
