A lot of posts ask about why certain codecs don't work with the free Lightworks Beta. Most of the time, it's because the codecs concerned need to have a license fee paid to use them. We obviously can't supply an unlimited quantity of something that costs us money. We are looking at ways to integrate or invoke Open Source codecs - so if your codec isn't supported now, it may be in the near future.
