I've tried to do my first divx -> skvcd attempt but get errormessage on preview -> "couldn't locate a decompressor for........avs".

I think I have all codec's installed (I CAN watch the particular .avi file).

What am I doing wrong ?

Being abble to watch a movie is not the same than having all the codecs : you can have a directshow filter that do the work, and that is completly different from a codec.

Avs use codecs only with "avisource" and directshow filters only with "directshowsource".

Here I guess you have ffdshow, that is a wonderfull directshow filter that can replace xvid, divx, huffyuy, mjpg... en a lot of other codecs. But it is NOT a codec and then NOT use by avisynth.

You must DL and install the codecs needed by your avi if you want to convert them in KVCD.

(note: your problem can also come from the audio, for instance if the audio of your avi is in ogg vorbis format).

But I DID install the proper codec (Xvid MPEG4). First I couldn't play it, then installed the Xvid coded and I could play it.

Gspot says the audio is MPEG1 layer III...........

Shall I remove and then re-install the coded ??

Does Gspot also says that the rendering is ok for both Video and Audio steams ?

Do you use zoomplayer ? If yes, watch the video with it and tell me what filters and codecs are used according to zoomplayer.
