No Video Playback for AVI files


Spumoni Confused

Question

Creator 2009 (CinePlayer) - When I try to play my AVI files I get audio, but NO VIDEO.

Same problem with Windows Media Player. (Have Windows XP - NVIDIA GeForce 7050/NVIDEA nForrce 610i) However, they play fine with VLC Media Player and Quick Time Player.

I have tried using the converter which does convert the AVI files to MPEG.

But the MPEG does not play VIDEO either. I phoned the paid technical support line,

and the technician did not understand what I was saying at all - he thought that I had a

problem with DVD playback - i haven't even gotten far enough to make a DVD from this program.

Computer geeks usually say something like "you just need to get the right codecs" - which may be true

but baffles me, even though I have a technical electronics background.

I'd appreciate some good advice (or good humour if that's all you got - because you have to laugh at all the time, money and frustration the wonderful world of computer gagetry costs us )

Where did the .avi files originate? If they don't work in Windows Media Player, is there a reason that you think that Roxio is the problem?

 

Do you have the Creator 2009, SP4 patch installed?

 

Thanks for your response, Grandpabruce. The avi files are from my HP digital camera.

(Photosmart M627) When they did not play the video in WMP. I looked though the Microsoft help, but found nothing to help. I called HP and they suggested I use the Quick Time Player - which plays them fine. Also, VLC Player works. So when I purchased Creator 2009 - I assumed they would play fine.

But I will check to see if the SP4 patch is installed and get back to. Thanks again.

Hi grandpabruce - I just checked the downloads and I'm completely updated - the SP4 is already

installed. I double-checked the video sttings -and just checked all the different types of files.

I tried to play the files I converted to MPEG through Creator 2009 - still no video and no error codes.

My avi files do not display the video in WMP on our other computer as well. This is weird.

Also the camera uses .AVI container, the original video format is MotionJPEG as per HP Spec and that could be the problem. When playing in QT, do a Ctrl + I, which should bring audio/video specs of the file.

Sorry that I did not see your post, yesterday. Firenhancer is correct. As far as I know, none of the Roxio suites accept Motion JPEG files.

Thanks for all your help. I've resolved my problem by purchasing QuickTime 7 Pro.

I use it to convert my Motion JPEG into their movie file.

Then I use Creator 2009 to create a DVD with titles etc. Works great!

Thanks again to Firenhancer and GrampaBruce.

Spumoni.
