Only stock vodeo codecs work
I never have a problem creating video files when the selected video codec is one of those that come with Windows - Microsoft Video 1, Cinepak, etc. Camstudio also works OK with its own lossless codec.
However, if I select XVid, as soon as I start capturing, there's error message: "camstudio could not record AVI file using current compressor". If I select Windows Media V9, it works, but the resulting video can't be played by anything. If I select Divx, Camstudio crashes.
What do I need to look into? it's all in Windows XP SP3 , Camstudio 2.7.
