If you're a VirtualDub user, here's the best thing since sliced bread. The FFinputdriver. This is an input driver that uses the ffmpeg code. Just about any file ffmpeg can open you can open in VirtualDub. Also converts the audio to wave format.

Just found this driver so I haven't had a chance to test many video formats, but it did open my HDV m2t files. Will continue to check other formats.

I had been trying to use virtualdub 1.9.11 previously with little success. I kept getting 'missing codec' and 'no audio compressor' errors.

Now you are linking me to a 32 bit 1.6.19 version. Considering I run Win7 64. Is this a better version.
Should I be using a 64 bit version of the the 1.6.19 version.

What is everything I need to make virtual dub run and open wmv files? I've tried the wmv plugin in 1.9 and I still got missing codec and compressor errors.

I've just tried the 32bit 1.6 version with the ffinputdriver khaver linked to and I still get the 'no audio compressor' error.

I'm having the same issues.

I need help bad. The picture motion/playback is so much slower than the audio - there is a delay somewhere. I can't even get past this step in order to edit my videos. I need my face motion to match the speed of my voice. I downloaded the 32-bit for Windows 7 on their website and even tried the 62-bit and the same thing happened. I use my Note which saves the files as mp4 and the format is 1080p, AVCHD. I've tried transcode it in so many different formats and nothing works -- please help if possble??

Computer specs are:
Windows 7 Home Premium / Service Pack 1

System: Toshiba
Model: Satellite C655D
Processor: AMD C-50 Processor 1.00GHz
Installed Memory (RAM): 3.00GB (2.60 BG usable)
System type: 64-bit Operating System

Hope this helps? Do you need additional information?

It would help if you post the MediaInfo of one of your files so others can see what you are trying to edit.

For what I've read, your material probably has a variable frame rate and/or audio with sampling rate and/or bit depth non standard for a NLE.

Also, your system specs could be a bottleneck for HD editing, so maybe you might want to try editing with proxies, either with LW's workflow or with Eyeframe Converter.
