Pregunta del cliente

romr2009 helped me 13/10/12, the solution which finally worked, I found in the entrails of my xp m/c. A different WinTV Nexus folder turned up, and Presto, it goes ok now.
But, I like to record videos therefrom, the format choices being MPG, PVA and PSV, (with MP2, Audio only). I also like to edit the files sometimes, my favourite editor being VirtualDub. Only, it doesn't like the formats. I've tried a number of video conversions', for e.g. to .avi. Some of these conversions please VirtualDub, but others give an error message like ' ...avi is of an unknown or unsupported file type'.
I think I need a Video Convertor of a higher quality than the ones I've found.
Any ideas?

As far as I understand you, you have record several videos with your WinTV Nexus capture card, and you want to make a convertion to a AVI format, isn't it?

Can you tyell me the original format tipe?

Is it a MPG or MPEG format?

In a nutshell:-


Satellite TV program -> WinTVNexus, record as MPG, (PVA or PSV) ->


video convertor -> MPG to AVI -> VirtualDub says the file




so, want a better convertor, or give up.

while I was out, your list of things to try faded to white, but I had noted 4 and I tried them. Here is what I got.


1 movavi.com

costs more than I'm about to risk.


2 mpg to avi was asked to convert a 1.16Mb .MPG file to .AVI

VirtualDub was asked to open it.

It said 'couldn't locate a decompressor for FMP4 (unknown)'

It would also need a VFW codec, but not one like DirectShow uses.

I've previously spent at least 10 hours on the Internet, trying to download said VFW codec but I only got a run-around from clever sales offers for things I didn't want


3 format-factory was given the same task

VirtualDub said 'couldn't locate decompressor for format xvid (unnown)'

also asked for a VFW codec.


4 any-video-converter gave the same result as 3, above.



Maybe I should pension-off VirtualDub and look for an editor that's happy with MPG.

...let me ask you ¿what is the reason why you need the file in AVI format?

I am asking you because, the AVI format is popular in Windows environment, but MPG is compatible in almost every platform, including DVD players.

If a player is what you are lookig for, you can try these:

- http://www.gomlab.com/eng/
- http://flvplayer.com/

I use both, but FLV is my favorite!
