AVI Files suddenly won't load
on Jul 11, 2019 at 7:35:53 pm

I'm using Vegas 14 Pro on Windows 10.
When I try and open an AVI file, a box comes up "Warning: An error occurred while opening one or more files. An error occurred while opening a codec. " This has never happened before. Some of my very old AVI files will load but none from the last few years.
Any one have any idea of how I can resolve this?

Hi Diane. How much space do you have on your PC? Also, download the freebie MediaInfo and get the internal information of the AVI that doesn’t work and then the information of the AVI that does work.

Hi Diane,

Something in your recent avi source media Vegas doesn't like. I think that is why Graham suggest using Mediainfo (in text mode) to compare the old stuff that works to the new stuff that doesn't, in an attempt to determine what it is that Vegas doesn't like. That may help you, or may not.

You may want to convert the new avi's using Handbrake or ERMedia Kit to a format Vegas will accept.

Best Regards......George

Installed or uninstalled anything recently?
Or did any kind of upgrade somewhat?
