I'm running Windows XP, SP3
I downloaded Avisynth_258.exe from SourceForge, and installed it
I tried the "Your first script - A guide for total newbies" -- and it didn't work (I use VLC for video)
I check the documentation that installs with the app (file:///C:/Program%20Files/AviSynth%202.5/Docs/English/index.htm)
Under "Troubleshooting", "Installation Problems"
-----it says try the script -- Version() -- using Windows Media Player 6.4 (mplayer2.exe)
When I do that I get a Windows Media Player Error
-----Unable to download an appropriate decompressor. (Error=80040200)
I've "hidden" the plugin dlls in a separate folder
I've installed Huffyuv v2.1.1 (from http://neuron2.net/www.math.berkeley.edu/benrg/huffyuv.html\)
...but no luck so far
I'm not new to PCs
I am new to video editing
Any ideas ??
