WARNING! Codec Packs.

Post by Devil »

Some codec packs are incompatible with much video software. Some codecs in them conflict with the codecs that MSP, VS, WS, MF and other NLEs use.

It is known that these sometimes cause:
a) no video
b) no audio
c) unforeseen crashes

If you have a codec pack of whatever make installed and suffer from any of the above problems, you may find that uninstalling the pack will be the solution for you.

We have seen this solution has worked twice in the past day or two, with two of the above programs, and a search on this and other forums will reveal other cases.

Is it possible to indicate which codec packs are involved ?

It would not be possible to offer an exhaustive list and it would be unfair to offer a negative incomplete list because it would imply that the others were OK, which may not be the case. A search on the forum here may reveal some of the names.

Locking this Topic, as it is intended as a warning/caution on installing and using codec packs, and not a discussion.
