I’m a Sony Vegas newbie who has been using Windows Movie Maker with my RCA Small Wonder EZ201 pocket camcorder ( 2+ years old ) to create .AVI files.
These files import to Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 9 ( trial ) without the audio track.
NOTE: the .AVI files play fine with sound in Movie Maker and Windows Media Player on my Windows 7 Dell E1525 Laptop.
So I found a free tool called VideoInspector that can assist in analyzing your video files and codes installed on your PC.
So, on the left side menu, click the Codec icon to see what we have installed
Don’t see XviD MPEG-4 codec in this list below
Audio Codec: Don’t see MPEG 1 or 2 installed ?
So, at this point maybe I should try and download these Codecs ?
So, I click on the Video Download button and I get a page like this but …
So, I’m gonna post this problem on the COW forum for help !
Stay tuned …
Some help from Mike Kujbida on createcow.net to get link for XVid codec.
Now Video Inspector shows the Codec Installed but we still need the Audio Codec
So, off to find the MPEG 1 or 2 audio codec !
No luck so far, gonna ask on CreativeCow.Net forum.
Thanks, LA Guy ( Paul )
