diagnosing codec issue: error recording avi file
First time posting here - I'm cloning this from a blog posting I made here:
I think this material is better suited to the forum than blog comments.
I see a lot of mention on websites of the error error recording avi file. I also see in the code that this was originally hardcoded and later replaced with constant IDS_STRING_ERRAVIDEFAULT. The error is displayed for any condition where an avi operation failed. Im finding it occurs all the time whenever using DivX. Having previously used cs2.1 I just started using v2.6. And with some minor success from default codecs on my system I decided to try DivX v6.8.4.
So is this a v2.5-2.6 issue? Something system-specific? General DivX issue? Config issue? Im wondering where output_avi_path is set to and if the problem is with DivX trying to write somewhere invalid. I think at some point the code should display the real error that occurred, rather than this generic catch-all err.
Im not a C guy but I am a developer, can read code (as you see) and may be able to contribute in some minor way.
Thanks for all of your work on this fine offering.
