vids: i263 decompressor
Posted on 1998-08-11
I was sent an AVI file and when I try to play it, I get a selection of replies such as 'Cannot find 'vids:i263'decompressor', 'MMSYSTEM326 No wave device that can play files in the current format is installed' & 'Cannot play back the video stream: no suitable decompressor could be found'. I have a P133 processor, 32MB RAM, IEv4, I am running Windows 98 and everytime I try to play the AVI file, Active Movie Control comes into play somehow . I would like to know:
(a) What exactly does all of the above nessages mean?
(b) Where can I download this 'vids:i263' decompressor? (Could I have a selection of places please)
(c) Where is it do be installed on the computer?
(e) Once installed, would I have to manually manipulate the files so that they are recognised and used by ActiveMovie, or will the files once loaded automatically place themselves in the right place?
I would really apreaciate your help becasue this is driving me crazy!
