  • Loading Video Codec


    Is there a way to run an exec. command at the outset of a menu to load a video codec (not available with Windows)to run improved video?

    Using the codecs that come with windows reduce the quality considerably. Specifically, I need to load a "ATI-VCR2" codec into the windows system. Where would codecs be stored?

    Any help with this procedure would be appreciated greatly. Thanks very much.

    If you have it in an EXE form, have it run at project open. If you need it to run for the opening video, you can have page1 be a fullscreen avi that once done playing will jump to the main page of your menu. That way on project open it will install the codecs, then play the AVI.
    If it si not in EXE format, yu will need to use another program to install. (I had the same problem with MPEG layer 4 codecs). I used a third party program to have it done. My menu checks for registry entry saying its been installed, if not it will run setup, then continue on with execution of menu.

    I hop[e this makes sense.
