Default Jittery playback on downloaded "AVI" files

AVI files that I have downloaded from "Rapidshare" are "Jitery". There is no continuity of video flow. I have downloaded several codec files but to no avail. Need some advice on this... Ron

first download and install a program called "gspot" it is freeware and tells you what codecs you need for a specific file. load the "avi file" into it and post a screenshot of it here....

"I have downloaded several codec files but to no avail."

For proper playback of most .AVIs (regardless of original codecs used to create them) download and install ONLY the FFDShow filter...

For playback of virtually ANY .AVI video (and others), you should ONLY install the FFDShow filter.

Do not install any unneeded codec because they may cause conflicts...

Columbo999 and setarip - Thank you again for your interest and valuable support. I downloaded the "gspot" as "columbo suggested and downloaded "FFDSHOW" filter. AND, I don't have the jitters in the AVI format anymore, SO something worked! BUT, now I am confronted with the AVI files not running from start to finish without stopping for small periods of time? No continuity of flow BUT no jitters???? I have been told by some local "Gurus" to install the Divx "divx521xp2k.exe" file. I downloaded the Divx file but it will not load unless I accept a trial period package? I just saw my friend do this without the trial result - I'll keep trying to get the "divx521xp2k.exe" file to function and run all "AVI' files from there..... Thanks again for all of your help. very sincerely Ron

Default TO MAYBE2

sometimes my avi's lose continuity due to the pc processor not being able to keep up(especially when multitasking). it may be similar to what you describe. however i noticed this doesn't really happen when they are converted to mpeg-2. i found also power dvd almost never "jitters" for playback of almost every file type.

with regard to the divx codec 5.21, when installing you are asked if you want the 6 month trial, or just divx. select "no just give me divx".

when in doubt of "smoothness" i burn a test file to a -rw disc.

thats how to get some answers quick. good luck!
