Beginners help with Registax 4

Recommended Posts

I recorded some good footage of the Moon last night with my Mini DV camera, transfered the file from tape to PC using Windows Moviemaker, and saved it as a standard PAL DV-AVI file.

I can't get Registax to read the file. It comes up with the error "Failed to open AVI straam"

Can Registax work on DV-AVI files ?

Any help appreciated,

Try this:

Download a copy of virtualdub (ITS FREE, HAVE A GOOGLE)

Install it all etc

open your avi in virtual dub then select 'save as avi' this will uncompress (I think) the video and let you open it in Registax.

have fun!
