Sims 3 Recording Video Issues. [SOLVED]

Post by MidnightProwl on Sat 10 Mar 2012, 22:24

Okay, so my game runs fine. I have all EP (including Showtime) and a couple SP.

The game runs perfectly; however, it seems the video recording aspect of it is messed up. It'll record in-game just fine, but when I try to open it with Windows Media Player it says, "Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file.". DivX Player will open and play it, but it's a blank screen.

Please help me!

If it means anything... The videos record as AVI files.

Hello,

I recommend using VLC Media Player, which can be downloaded here: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

Please let us know the result!

VLC works. Thank you very much!

Do you have a recommendation for a freeware movie editor? =)

Hello,

Glad to hear it's working!
For easy editing, I just use Movie Maker 2.6, but it depends on what you prefer. I don't edit movies that much.

Admin! I could kiss you! I thought I'd download this just to try it. Lately when I record the Sims the videos would lag. I thought it was from the game but, it's the windows video player. I downloaded the link you posted and my videos play just fine. Mystery solved

Hi there,

Haha, I only use VLC Media Player. It has almost all codecs already built-in, so you do not need any additional codec packs. Because of this, it plays almost all video formats!
And let's be honest, the player doesn't look that bad.

Have fun using the program! Topic closed. Wink
