VirtualDub - Couldn't Locate decompressor for format 'DX50'

I've attached an image with the error message..

I've tried to open the movie "Requiem For a Dream" in VirtualDub,
and received that message.
I opened it in GSpot to see what's the problem.
It was writted that I have 3 compatible codecs, but 1 is not working properly: 3ivx.
So I downloaded it and reinstall it..

Anyway it didn't help. And in other programs the movie
did play (Media Player, BS Player) !!!!


What's wrong ??

DX50 is the codec for DivX 5 I believe. It is available from http://www.divx.com Also make sure you are using the latest version of VirtualDub, v 1.5.10 is the latest I think.

Maybe you can find the answer here http://www.3ivx.com/ I haven't looked over the entire site but ... they do have both a support and forum section.

Edit: I've been using VirtualDub for a few years and have found that it is particularly intolerant of any errors it finds. For example, if the 4CC ID info does not match exactly the encoding, VirtualDub chokes on it, where other video playing and rendering engines don't seem to mind as much. Do you have another video rendering engine? If so, try the video in that and see what happens.

Need to reinstall Divx5.11

I've the same problem and I used to installed the Divx5.11 codec from K-Lite Codec pack only. It's enough for you to play DivX in player but not enough to decode in VirtualDub. I installed the Divx5.11 bundle pack from DivX.com and now it works fine in VirtualDub

Yes, codecs from codec packs are often questionable. Also, it's a simple matter to change the fourcc code in a video header to anything you please. The fourcc changer, avic.exe, is one way to do this.

You could try ffdshow. It's a versatile decoder.
