Open AVI in Vegas
on May 17, 2020 at 6:13:02 pm

Hi there, my Vegas 14 won't open AVI files, this is a new computer with win 10.
I recall having issues installing various codec packs with ad-ons etc. before.

Is there a particular codec pack or way to get Vegas to open AVIs without me messing up my system?

Not sure why Vegas wouldn't have it's own way to play a windows video file...

Thanks
Jono

Because an AVI isn't, strictly speaking, a "Windows video file." An AVI is just a container, and any video format can fit inside it. Your AVI file is using a format that Windows and Vegas don't have inbuilt support for.

Your best bet without installing codec packs (which can sometimes gum up the works on your PC) is to download a tool like AVICodec ( http://avicodec.duby.info/ ) and run your AVI files through it to see what codec they need, then install just that specific codec. Afterwards, restart your PC and try the AVI in Vegas again.
