Video codec lost???

After installing SB-AWE64 PnP my WIN98 refuses to play any videos (AVI,MOV etc.) System reports that it cannot find specific video decompressor... Media Player reports when trying to play AVI: "Video not available, cannot find 'vids:KMVC' decompressor"... Sound works nice. I've got Matrox G-200, Celeron 463MHz, 128Mb, 8,4Gb...

That is a Non standard codec, Definately not Intel. Where is the Avi from?

Normally you can download the Intel Codecs from

http://www.intel.com/pc-supp/multimed/indeo/codec.htm 

but these may not help with the Codec you mentioned.

Hi,

  Try this URL:

http://support.intel.com/support/createshare/camerapack/CODINSTL.HTM

Also, you can try the windows update to install video decompressors.

Hehe,

I noticed the times of both of our post. With as much as we participate, I am surprised it doesn't happen more often.

Hopefully between both our responses vm63310 will be able to fix this problem. Not too sure however (that is a pretty strange Codec error).....

Have fun,
Craig

I downloaded newest media player for Win98 but even that didn't solve my problem... Media player tried to download that WHAT-THE-HELL- codec, but it said: "Unable to download an appropriate decompressor. (Error=80040200)". This problem is getting really tough and I'm getting pissed with that WIN98!! I even formatted my HD and installed Win98 again but nothing... I downloaded newest drivers for my soundcard but nothing!!! I really think the problem lies in that SB64AWEPnP, 'cause before installing it the videos pplayed just fine. Do I have to choose whether to play videos or sounds??? Help me!!

you should reinstall the software of the video player you are trying to use, you do not mention which video player you are using, try that. also go to control panel/add\remove software
Windows setup/ Multimedia an make sure the all the compressor are installed. also make sure that the software that you are tryin to use have all the CODECS, if not that means you did not install teh full version and it assume you already have it. there might be an option in the installation of the VIDEO player you are installing. if it dont work. try unistalling and reinstalling the
CODECs and Multiplayers. you should be having a conflict with another program
