I have never edited a video before. I wanted an app that didn't require hundreds of
hours to master. I know vReveal is no longer supported, but that doesn't matter if
you're a newbie.
After reading this review it seemed like vReveal was the video editor for me:
I downloaded vReveal_v184.108.40.20629 from MajorGeeks.
The first video I selected to open was an AVI. A dialog box appeared stating that vReveal
could not open the file. Even worse, I had to kill vReveal with the Task Manager because
the dialog box was stuck!
I have five video players. This AVI video runs normally in all five players. Some video
players have trouble with long filenames. The AVI I selected has a very short name.
vReveal must be packed with all the needed codecs for common video formats like MP4
and AVI. I hope there is a simple fix for this problem. If not, I'll use my uninstaller app
to completely remove vReveal.
I've been building and using computers for several decades. It's very depressing that
my first attempt at video editing failed because vReveal couldn't open a common AVI

I'm afraid to go down this road to oblivion. To a video newbie like me, a codec is like a
driver for hardware. Without native or third party drivers your computer will not recognize
printers, flash drives, etc. I've installed thousands of drivers, but never a codec pack.
Frankly, I'm very puzzled. I played this AVI video with VLC, GOM, KMPlayer, MPC-HC, and
UMPlayer. The advanced media player that is part of vReveal must contain all the codecs
needed for an AVI video. Don't you think so?
I'm sure you're an expert on codecs Baldrick, so I'll follow your advice. I'll download MediaInfo
and post the results in this thread. If codec packs do not come with an installer, I'll need your
help adding more codecs to my system.
Please see the attached screenshots from MediaInfo.
Tell me which codec pack I should download to resolve the problem with vReveal. If the
codec pack does not come with an installer, I need to know where in my system I should
extract the files.
If all these details from MediaInfo does not provide a solution for the problem I'm having
with vReveal, I'll uninstall the app.
Thank you Baldrick.
These reviews at CNET about XviD Codec are scary! Third party software is installed without asking
The CNET reviews for Ffdshow are very good, so I'm going to try this app.
Baldrick, I have several operating systems. I can play this AVI video in old systems like 98SE or any
I'll return to this thread after installing Ffdshow.
Thanks again for helping video newbies.
I don't get any third party addons with https://www.videohelp.com/download/Xvid-1.3.4-20150621.exe
I had the problem the same as that of box-turtle, I solved it by installing Xvid. I downloaded it from the link Baldrick reported above.
Avevo lo stesso problema di box-turtle, l'ho risolto installando Xvid che ho scaricato dal link che Baldrick ha riportato sopra. Grazie Baldrick
