Using Dialhot's optimal script v4 in this section of the forum I created a script and filled in the relevent info for my film. When I tried to open it with Zoom player it displayed "unexpected character 'y' " (the y had two dots above it. What does this mean and what can be done?
Thanks

Code:
AviSource("C:\Documents and Settings\jonny\My Documents\Films\Lesotho.Plains.avi",false)
BlindPP(cpu=4)
Blockbuster(method="noise",detail_min=1,detail_max=3,variance=0.1,seed=1)
Convolution3D(1, 6, 12, 6, 8, 2.8, 0)
GripCrop(640, 272, overscan=1, source_anamorphic=false)
GripSize(resizer="LanczosResize")
Undot()

P.S. The message is actually displayed on the playing screen of Zoom player as a 10 second clip.

What Avisynth version are you using?

You could try removing line by line and see which one fixes the issue.

Version 2.5.5. I'll give your suggestion a try.

Well I removed everything but the first line and tried with other films too but still the same error. I also get the same screen in Media Player Classic.

Try updating the specific codec that decodes the video.

Before I try that is there something that I've missed out? First I installed AviSynth 2.5.5 and then copied and pasted Dialhot's scripts into notepad and replaced the resolution values and path etc to match mine. I then saved the script as an .avs file and clicked on it which was when I got the screen. I also have all the plugins that are needed and these are in the plugin folder.

Ok,
What kind of video file are we talking here?
Because if it's DivX/XviD this thread is bond to be closed.
If its from a capture, is it a regular AVI?
If it is, it should be working with Phil's script.
Can you load that video into media player classic without the script and watch it?
Cheers

It's an avi file made by a friend who went and worked in Africa and I got it directly off him. And yes it plays normally in both Zoom player and Windows Media Player Classic

Try opening it in VDub. If that fails, you don't have the proper codec.

I suggest you to drop notepad and use an other text editor.

It use to have problems with cut and paste issued from a forum like this one. It's probable you have undisplayed char at the end of you lines and you don't know it.

Type by yourslef the script char by char and do not copy/paste.
Do a script with juste the first line, to test.
I tell you that because somone had the same problem some months ago.

Cheers guys. A combination of the last two suggestions seems to have done the trick with opening it (I'm not sure about with filters yet but that will come I'm sure).
