Hey. Whenever I try to install the Camstudiocodec, it says I need to locate the file, "camcodec.dll." but I can't find it anywhere. Can somebody help me with it please? Thanks in advance!

    It should be in the same folder as the .inf file. Did you unzip the entire contents of the zip into a folder?

    Okay. I was able to install it but now it doesn't show up in the Video Options.

    Try installing version 2.6b r294 and see if it appears then. I ran into a similar anomaly on my laptop.

  • tbritton,

    I re-installed the 2.6b r294 and re-installed the codec and it's still not showing up in the video options.
  • theoneandonly09,

    Well, that bug is mysterious, but believe me, you want to be using Xvid or Lagarith Lossless anyway - especially Xvid! Just keep your screen regions as even numbers (use the Fixed Region setting). 1280X720 even has an Xvid profile now.

    Here's my favorite version:

    Even if you have a 64-bit machine, you'll need the 32-bit binaries for CamStudio. If you have 64-bit, get the installer that installs both and you'll have your 64-bit players covered.
