I installed fresh MediaPlayer 9 on Windows 98, and also
tried playing a test MPEG on Windows 2000 with
MediaPlayer 8. In both cases, MediaPlayer lacked
codecs to play the movie.

Can xvidcap be made to store movies in a more
compatible format?

    That FAQ entry is too new for me to have read. When I use
    its advice, I get Unsupported Codec selected, resetting to
    MPEG1! For v1.1.2, built against the archive-provided
    provided ffmpeg.

    (update)
    again, could you provide more details?
    like: I built 1.1.2, selected this or that codec, captured a
    movie,
    tried the movie with mplayer, worked, does not work in WMP.

    esp. what codec did you use, how did you select it? Manually,
    preferences dialog?

    I downloaded the recent rc3 and it doesn't recognize DIV2 or
    DIV3, but I did specify no audio and was able to get MJPEG
    to work for MediaPlayer 9.

    (update)
    try MS_DIV2 or MS_DIV3

    MS_DIV2 or MS_DIV3 both work, but both have wrap-around
    video. See sample attached. MJPEG doesn't do this.

    Movie too large to upload - get it at

    Could you elaborate what you mean by wrap-around video?
    Are you referring to the artefacts visible around the cursor?
    Apart from that, I can't find anything wrong with the video.
    Are you saying that MJPEG doesn't have those artefacts?

    If so, I should perhaps reconsider encoding bitrates.
