Need H264 codec to convert avi

Question

Using Toast 9.04

 

I am attempting to convert an avi file to a DVD-Video. When I select the avi file, I get the following error:

 

"myfile.avi" was not added because a required codec is missing (H264)

 

I am running OS X Version 10.5.7 and the latest Quicktime which has h.264 built in.

 

Do I need to add some other codec? If so, where do I get it and how do I add it?

 

Thanks,

 

Greg

I found a solution.

 

I first converted the file to h.264 using MPEG Streamclrip (free).

 

I then was able to use Toast to make the DVD.

 

Hope this helps someone.

I don't get it. I thought one of the file converter options was h 264. Why would you need to go out of Toast.
