I recently created a video in my camera.It's the normal pal specs video.I imported in adobe premiere and then exported as an avi.However when i import it into PI it gives me an error saying that avi request format error.Sometimes it accepts it and then says need to change frome rate to 25fps.After it does it says error violation.The main problem is any video i try to import in Pi it says avi request format error.
Snipped from the pI FAQ:
particleIllusion currently has problems with DV formats. This problem is expected to be fixed in the next update of particleIllusion (3.x). As a work around, you can use VirtualDub to convert your AVI into a codec which particleIllusion can use, or to a sequence of images (PNGs, TGAs, TIFs, etc.).
You can also download the Panasonic DV codec, which should allow you to bring DV AVIs into pI, but beware! I've found that it makes some video editing programs have trouble importing AVIs encoded with certain other codecs (divx, xvid).
