    Well, I have another one... this time I was trying to play an ep of the X-Files that I have watched before and it told me that I have unrecognized video data... FOURCC and need codec IV50 to let divx player read it... can anyone suggest a where I can find this codec or what you think the problem is? I am getting a little miffed at my divx player... LOL Hopefully someone can help me. Thanks so much. Oh, ps, I ran it through G-Spot and this was the read out:

    The following codec should be capable of processing this format:

    --> {Indeo® Video 5.2 Decompression Filter}(misconfigured! click on it for info)

    DirectShow is apparently able to play the file as well (see "DirectShow Render", below),

    but, to my knowledge, Indeo costs money... does anyone know where I might be able to get it for free?

    and then, when I put it through render, this was the read out:

    DirectShow partially succeeded to play file. The actual text of the error or warning is:

    0x00040242: VFW_S_PARTIAL_RENDER - Some of the streams in this movie are in an unsupported format.

    The following combination of filters were used:

    {C:\Documents and Sett..-..h (Series Finale).avi} (Audio Source)
    {AVI Splitter} (Audio Splitter)
    {Morgan Stream Switcher} (Audio Post-processor)
    {Default DirectSound Device} (Audio Renderer)

    I am very frustrated and once again, sleepless in seattle...

    Jill :(

    well it seems like it is now a licensed buying product, however you can get the codec from intel directly (since thru the licensing by a third company old versions had to still have support) here is the the link

    that should hopefully fix it

    you seem to be the new hot conversation starter ;) :p
