|So what is the difference between a capture card and a tv tuner card? I thought my card was both?|
OK well i have downloaded and run Gspot and under the heading of 'container' I got this:
File length Correct
OpenDML (AVI v2.0)
Video: 81.6mb (96.53%)
Audio: 2.61 mb (3.10%)
AVI Overhead: 327 KB (0.38%)
and in the 'status' area it says 'No codec required'.
Do you need more info than that?
I just reinstalled the K-lite codec pack because as you say I might have uninstalled the MPEG encoder and as it was running I got this: The following Directshow filter was detected as broken: leadtek MPEG Demuxer
and states it's path(filename), Registry key, reason:file not found and is asking me if I want to remove it from the windows registry. It recommends I do. So I clicked yes.
Then it says that the Leadtek file writer is missing with the same information and I click yes to remove.
Then the Leadtek MPEG Audio encoder, Leadtek audio decoder, leadtek MPEG moxer, Phillips VBI renderer,Leadtek image process filter, leadtek demultiplexer, leadtek dump filter, leadtek video/SP decoder, Winfast Data Transform filter, leadtek stream handler, leadtek resampling filter, leadtek file source filter, leadtek stream control, cyberlink MPEG video encoder(leadtek) and then it brings up a html page in internet explorer with the url http://codecs.r8.org but as I don't have my windows machine connected to the net I have no idea what it is saying. Ah I typed in the url here and it is just the site where I got the codec pack. Now at the end of the setup it says I am done and is asking me to exit or configure ffdshow video decoder, ffdshow audio decoder, directVobSub, AC3Filter. I just click finish as I have no idea how.
I only have 2gig per month internet usage and I have almost used that. I have almost 2 weeks left of the month and they will step me down to almost dialup speed so won't be able to send a large file like that. There is a possibility in a few days when I get my notebook battery that i can send it via wifi as there is a hotspot at the local library.
The captured video is an .avi.
