There's an error when trying to decompress using makeavisvideocodec!

Did you install everything as its explained at the newbie thread from RDS-Correia?

Hi there,
Yes there seems to be an error coming up on clickit's log file.
But apparently he did everything the guide instructed him as you can see in his log too "Loaded DLL driver ffvfw".
This is the first time I see such an error in mencoder log
I'm affraid I can't help you clickit .
Cheers

I think I have found the solution to my problem

here is the line that causes the problem :

DirectShowSource("xxx.avi", audio=false)

and here is the right line, that fixes the problem with mplayer and mencoder


DirectShowSource("e:\my stuff\xxx.avi", audio=false)

It seems that by adding the full path to the movie it eliminates the problem

I just want to say that I had the exact same problem just now with a SVCD source that I processed throught DVD2AVI and a script using mpeg2source (and not directshowsource). I solved the issue with the same trick.

Use complete paths into your script

That Log related to a correct aspectration is wrong!
Means perfect would be 720x576 Aspect 4:3 in a float written 1.33333 or 16:9 (1.77777
Be shure you determined in your commandline the right aspect=XXXX so that your movie afterwrards will be played back correct.
