Hi,

Normal avi's play fine.

I'm trying to play an avi file by MGI who produce the VideoWave program. Their avi files are giving me problems.

Initially I got the error "vids:cvid decompressor missing"

That has gone away but now I get

MCI Error
MMSYSTEM006 There is no driver installed on your system.

Could someone tell me where I can get the particular drivers that stops these error message.

TIA
