I downloaded dreamcatcher 1 & 2 (tso).avi... it plays on AVI preview but not when I try to play from windows media player. #2 works, just not #1. I went ahead & burned the CD anyway, but it still won't play. what's up with that? I have dvix & xvid codecs w/ nemo 5.0 beta. (I disabled th dvix & xvid codecs on Nemo. Got any ideas? :( also, AVI preview shows that a mp43 codec is to be used...shouldn't there be one in the Nemo build? ..should I add something, or download a different codec pack like SLD codec?

So both files work in AviPreview? Did you use TMPGenc to encode? If there is a black screen while encoding, then there will be a black screen in the final one.

Try using VirtualDUB and scan for errors on part 1.

yes, they both work on AVI preview. I notice that when playing the 1st one, it hangs up & doesn't start right away, where as on the 2nd one, it plays right away..not sure if that means anything. I have TMPGenc downloaded, but have never used it. I haven't run it through gspot yet.

If it works in avi-preview it could be a problem with Windows Media Player. Try it in a different player, such as Zoom Player (http://www.inmatrix.com/files/zoomplayer_download.shtml).

I have WMP9.. it says it will play avi and nemo 5.0 shows to have mp43 decoders. This is what is showing to be needed by gspot .. I;m stumped.

I find PowerDVD XP works amazingly well with the files that usualy do not work on Windows Media Player.
