Try this:

AviSource("C:\YourVideoDirectory\YourVideo.avi", false)

This will process only your video, eliminating any audio issues.

Then go from AVI --> WAV --> MP2 (you may have already done this), then mux with bbmpeg.

Hi Marius,

Comment the "Undot" line on your script. Put a # at the beginning of the line.
You probably have a processor which doesn't support SSE instructions, and Undot requires them.

hi, kwag,

it didn't help. everything stayed as it was.
and here is my dll section:

## DLL Section ##
#
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\MPEG2Dec3.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\GripFit_YV12.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\Avisynth_2.5a_Version\STMedianFilter.d ll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\asharp.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\UnFilter_Avisynth_2.5_Alpha\unfilter.d ll")
# LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\undot.dll")
#
####

There should be a line like this:

undot()

Comment it too:

#undot()

ok. i see. i did that. the same thing i i with "# STMedianFilter(8, 32, 0, 0 )" as message was the same.

now i don't get any message when i load script (i do it into virtual dub), but i don't get any picture as well, but the black background. and the first frame of my avi file definately is not black.

And second question : do you have ANY codec on your machine ? Because the first message indicate clearly that you don't have the proper codec for the sound. And now the black screen... no video codec either ?

to kwag:
processor-Intel(R) Celeron (P6CMendocinoCeleron300-5332V), co-procesor-built in, speed-501Mhz, perfomance rating-PR601(estimated), rated speed/FSB-503Mhz/67Mhz, multiplier-7.5x, generator 6th (6x86) and 128 RAM.
i don't really know if i answered your question, kwag. hope so. if not- specify info you need (as for "green"one), as i'm not very strong in all those things.

to Dialhot:

i don't think it's a codec problem. i can play the spicified avi file on WMp, can play with other playes, such as Zoom or ViPlay with sound and with picture. i can encode the file to VCD with TMPGEnc-and i did that. i can demux audio and video and play them. i suppose, that if i didn't have right codecs on my PC i couldn't do all that, did i?

What happens when you load your AVS script into WMP, VDub (I think you said black background, did you play it to see if it always stays black)?

If you aren't sure about codecs, download GSpot. Load your AVI into GSpot, and it will tell you what codecs you have and if you are missing any. I seem to remember being able to play an XVID AVI file through WMP, but the AVS script came out all black when encoding. I upgraded to a new version of the XVID codec and it solved my issues.

i have GSpot on my PC., and it reported no error.
codecs for video and audio are ok, and according to GSpot there should be no error playing the file: "file rendered succsessfully, no errors reported"

but, now i tried to load my script into WMp. it loaded and there was not a black background but there was not a picture as well. i will not be able to discribe in english what it look like, but it is not a picture from there movie. it is coloured, it is some kind of deformated picture when the bottom of the picture is shifted to the left and the top is shifted to the right and it is impossible to understand what there should be.

Can you please copy what gspot reports for the video and audio rendering chain ?

I wonder what are the codec used and what is the real format of your source

how shall i do that? i can't find the option or something like that in Gspot which would create some text file with conclusions or something.

i'll try to write it down for you: video codec-DIV3/div4, name-DivX 3 Fast-Motion, audio-mpeglayer3 (mp3) (0x0055) ISO/MPEG. if some more info is needed-tell me and i'll give it to you.

Sorry, I missed your last post.

The info that I need from Gspot is the last two section at the bottom of the screen ! They give the video and audio rendering chains (that means all the codec/filter that as used from the source to the display).

I don't see how I can explain better without a screenshot and I don't have gspot under my eyes to give you exactly how this section is called

If it's a codec issue, it's basically trial and error. I know GSpot tells you that you have compatible codecs installed. However I had the same problem with an XVID AVI, I was able to play the AVI with no problems but upon encoding all I got was all black output. GSpot told me I had the compatible codecs installed. After reading up a bit I upgraded to the latest version of the XVID codec and it worked. If nothing else you can try that, although try to keep a backup of your old codec or know where y ou can download your current version, in case it screws things up worse.

thats' ok, i'll manage.

directshow render:
source:MEDIASUBTYPE_Avi
video media:4cc: DIV3
audio media:WAVE_FORMAT_MPEGLAYER3 (MP3) (0x0055)
spliter/other:AVI Splitter
video codec:DivX Decoder Filter
audio codec:MPEG Layer-3 Decoder

"direcshow reported no error. it was able to render the file using avi splitter as a splitter(generally to isolate the audio and video from the combined stream( DivX decoder filter as the video codec and mpeg layer-3 decoder as the audio codec."

is that it?

Euh... it seems that you don't have the last realease of gspot. The last one as a section "DirectShowRender" with two zone at the bottom : Video Path and Audio Path (just above an information zone called "Status").

That is version 2.2.1. Do you have this one ?

If yes, i need what is in these two zones "Video Path" and "Audio Path" !

Edit : I found a screenshot ! There :
