I wonder if any one can help i need a program preferably freeware to convert this type of video file (codec)

To this type of file (codec)

Its a AVI to WMV i think im not sure on the codecs and stuff,

Basicly im trying to convert video iv captured using fraps so i can edit them in windows movie maker2,

Iv tryed to import the AVI videos straight into windows MM2 but it crashes i found out its some thing to do with the codecs but its way above my head so i thought if i could convert the files before importing them.

Your not having much luck with this project are you?

I don't know anything about codecs, but you could try looking for a general .avi to .wmv converter (for example have a trawl thro, some of these click here=), and see if that does the job. You could also try here click here.

I am not familar with Fraps (but just had a quick look at the website) - do they not have a forum, where you could post your problem?

I am not sure why you are having a problem with MM2 as according to the FAQ's (click here), you should be able to load the .avi into MM2.

Well GroupFC

You would think that an avi would work in MM2 but theres different avi file types,

Its a major headache for me but i have good news to report i downloaded a program called
STOIK Video converter 2 and it works a treat so far i only did a quick test video and it didnt crash YAYYY!!!!!

i converted the output video file from fraps (which has its own codec) its an avi file to a wmv file and then imported it into MM2 it was touch and go but it worked,
I start the main project saturday so hopefully i should not encounter any problems.

The test video i uploaded to google video and when its been approved i will link it here.

its quite funny.

As for a forum for the problems well i was in a halo forum and a guy there helped me out by reccomending Stoik.

Interestingly enough Stoik was one of the ones I had a quick look at, but didn't suggest it (or anything else), as I don't like suggesting s/ware that I haven't used myself.

"I start the main project saturday.....", so we can expect to see a few more posts then - LOL!

I'll be interested to see your test video, once you've posted the link.

Stoik has a freeware version thats what i got,

As for test videos i have made alot of them to test different things such as importing clips sound tests and such,

Heres a test clip i did a while back,

For some reason i always make my test videos funny,

This is the only one iv uploaded to google video apart from the one i did today but im waiting for it to be passed,

i have about twenty test videos in different formats made from different games such as Halo, GTA Vice city and such,

I will some day upload them all to google video or make them into one huge video as a few people found them funny,
Anyway hope you like it.
