Trouble playing recorded videos on Sims 3?

Post by satellite anthem on Tue 07 Aug 2012, 03:24

I noticed someone else posted a similar question but the topic was solved.
okay so the video seems to record fine in-game but when I go to play it, it doesn't work. In the other thread you said use VLC player and the op said it worked, but what I need to do is open it in windows live movie maker, cause I'm already in the middle of creating this sims video, but now I can't get my video to open. The file error says "Windows media player encountered a problem while playing the file" for WMP and divx seems to play it through but the screen is blank. Any suggestions? do I need a specific codec pack? thanks a lot! the file type is AVI.

Hello,

Yes it is possible that you need codecs.

Hello,

Are you sure VLC Media Player didn't open it? If not, I don't think it's a .AVI file. VLC Media Player opens almost all video formats.
But if you wish to try, here's the most complete codec pack you'll find: http://www.free-codecs.com/download/k_lite_mega_codec_pack.htm
