I don't have a camera, but a friend sent me an astronomy AVI made on a DMK41.

Although I have DirectX 11, I am unable to play the AVI in the Window Media Player (on 64-bit Windows 7)

I'm not familiar with Imaging Source products. Do they require a special codec?

Is the codec available for download and installation even if I don't own a camera?

Thanks!

Tom

Hello,

To make things easy, simply install IC Capture Trial. It will install the necessary DirectShow filters, so the media player will display the video (i hope). The download is at http://www.imagingcontrol.com/en_US/downloads/trials/

I confirm that, with IC Capture simply installed and without any other special codec pack, Windows Media Player on Windows 7 64 bit can read the AVI files coming from a DMK41, no problem at all.
Kind regards,
Alberto
