    Hello everyone!

    Since many years ago I have been using CCCP and Win7DSFilterTweaker(since I'm using Win7 64bit) for all my video playback needs.

    Right now I have a need to edit video files (Xvid/h264 mainly) in VirtualDub. I've downloaded the latest 64bit version of VD and obviously it won't let me open files for edit since I need the "VFW" codecs for that. I tried installing (and nothing else in the pack) and it didn't work + it overtook playback from my CCCP pack grrrrr.

    I don't want this mess in my system, I also have the AVS Video Converter in my system to convert certain formats I need and in my last OS installation I messed up the codecs that the AVS couldn't convert anymore.

    QUESTION: Besides having CCCP for playback and AVS for converting video formats, what do I need to install to be able to edit video files in VirtualDub (Xvid/h264)? Hopefully something very minimalist that would only enable that and would not interfere with CCCP/AVS.

    Thanks!

    Use g-spot codec analyzer.

    How exactly should it be helping me? Doesn't it only show you installed stuff and analyze an avi?

    It does exactly that, it tells you what you require.

    I know that I need a VFW codec for Xvid/h264, I just don't know which pack/version/file to download and install. I don't want to mess up my system by trying all available options :(



    UPDATE

    Ok I'm an idiot (or not), but I tried the latest 32bit VirtualDub and it works! (unlike 64bit version)

    VDub website states you should be using the 32bit version of the program, even if you have a 64bit OS + 64bit CPU chip.

    I'm someone who easily agrees with others, it's actually one of my nicer traits :)
