Default CDVC Codec download?

Hi Folks,

Long story, but I purchased an HP xw4100 with DVStorm2 and Edius software. A buddy asked me to convert a couple VHS tapes to AVI, so I did. The tapes were crappy and compressing to DivX just made it a million times worse. I used the setting for Canopus DV and the videos look great. Unfortunately, I sent them to him on a data DVD and he cannot play them back. I figured he was missing a codec, but when I checked the actual codec with GSpot, then searched for a CDVC download, I cannot find anything available. Any tips? I don't mind re-encoding, but am new to Edius and am not sure which AVI settings are compatible with WMPlayer or which ones have huge loss.

Sorry to be such a newbie.

Thanks, Derek

You need the Canopus Playback-only Codec download from the Desktop site in the Support section, under Product-Related Downloads, General Utilities.

Alternatively if your friend wants to, (s)he can install the EDIUS trial, as that also includes the Canopus DV codec.

In the future, when you output your DV file, make sure the box "Use MSDV codec" is ticked. This will mark the AVI as a Microsoft DV AVI which can be played in Windows Media Player without additional codecs.

Default Thank you

Thank you for the information. I am just getting comfortable with NLE and formats as all I have ever worked with is VirtualDub and DivX for chopping and compressing.
