Hi i have a few files in .wmv and can't figure out what to do and everytime i try to use directShowSource i never can get it to work,do you need to get a plugin for it or is it built in Avisynth 2.52.

Here is my script

Code:
DirectShowSource("C:\My movie\item 3.wmv",false)
ConvertToYV12()
Blockbuster(method="noise",detail_min=1,detail_max=8,variance=0.3,seed=5823) 
Deen() 
GripCrop(352, 240, overscan=1, source_anamorphic=false) 
GripSize(resizer="LanczosResize") 
Undot() 
TemporalSoften(2,7,7,3,2) 
DCTFilter(1,1,1,1,1,1,0.5,0) 
Blockbuster(method="noise",detail_min=1,detail_max=10,variance=0.5,seed=5623) 
GripBorders()
the message i get is

Code:
Script error Invalid arguments to function "directshowsource"
Any help will be greatly appreciated

Thanx

Read the doc provided with avisynth (under the "docs" directory). You will see that directshowsource do not have the same syntax than avisource and so, the ",false" on the line isn't correct at this place.

I have doubt your question has anything to do with a mistake in Directshowsource as mentionned originally in this tread.
You should have a syntax error somewhere; Post your entire, not modified script. The problem can also be in any ".avsi" file that you can have in the plugin directory of avisynth, as they are all loaded by avisynth before the first line of your avs script.

Did you ever see a "=" on the mpeg2source line in any of the scripts we post here ?

So why didn't you start with that first ?

The error message is "Can't open the d2v" file or "Can't find the d2v file" ? The meaning is not the same.

Ok. The version of DGDecode.dll is not correct.
You have to use the one corresponding to the DGIndex that you use. Update it in the plugin directory of avisynth if it is not the correct one.

If you are still using dvd2avi, then I suggest you to stop using it, remove Mpeg2Dec3.dll from your avisynth directory, use DGIndex inteed and put the DGDecode.dll that is delivered with DGIndex into the avisynth plugin directory.

I suggest also to change "Mpeg2Source" into "DGDecode_Mpeg2source" to be sure about what plugin is used.
