Recompressing .avi Files

edited September 2009 in Support
Camstudio is awsome and have created a a couple of training videos....I have a couple of issues and can't get around them.

I've created an HTML page with links to the videos.

1. The files are were very large the first time I recorded then

2. When re-compressing them in virtualdub using MSU codec

I can't see them on my other systems at work or from my laptop unless I install the codecs on each machine.

Does anyone have any hints to make this work?

Thanks in advance

    I'm not quite sure what you're asking, but If you want the videos viewable without much hassle, the best route I can think of would be to re-encode the video to h264/AVC (and if there's audio use AAC, although I believe MP3 should also work) inside an MP4 file. You could use something like SUPER ( or MeGUI ( to do this.

    MP4\h264 is in the current flash specs, so for the most part, any computer with an up to date version of Adobe's flash software should be able to open it.
  • Hi,

    I too was having the same problem as 'acozma', even mine recording was important. Virtual dub solved my problem...:) Thanks brandished for the valuable comment.

    Kind regards,
