ok, thank you for let us know. AVCHD fileas are going to be supported both for trimming and joining. Keep an eye on the updates.

I should have thought of that already. Your suggestion Dmitry fixed the problem. The issue lay not in the Coreavc codec,  but in the Haali media splitter that comes with it. Haali splitter is totally necessary in order to play m2ts and mts files in WMP, but has an option in it to use with avi files. I checked that option and now I realise that this is what caused the clash with editing avi in programs like solveig splitter. Anyway, I now unchecked that option and now my 1.2 version of Solveig works fine.

I must say that Solveig splitter is the best on the market by far, but I won't get the new version until it can handle avchd files which I edit a lot. When it can do that, I'll be buying the that version. Until then I will use solveig for avi and wmv, womble for mpeg 1 and 2 (only because I have it already) and whatever works for avchd (at the moment Pinnacle Studio is the best bet, but still not that great).

Hi Philebus,
So can you try to temporary uninstall the codec pack to ensure it causes the problem?

Thanks for the quick reply. I can't quite quote it as I have unistalled version 1.2.7, but yes, it says something like 'file is corrupt of can't be openned'. But the file isn't corrupt and can be played on a media player and openned in version 2.x.

Hi Philebus,

Does any error arise when you open AVI file? if so, please quote that.

Hi Dmitry,

I recently had a problem with my version of solveig video splitter. It would no longer open avi files of any type; including divx etc. I uninstalled it and, thanks to your help, reinstalled it, but it still can't open the files. It can still open and edit wmv and asf files just fine.

I have dual boot on my computer; xp 32 bit on one partition and vista 64 bit on another. It is the xp version which is playing up. Vista still works fine (mainly because I rarely use it and have less programs on that partition).

My feeling is that a program I have installed on xp is interfering with solveig (as well as Pinnacle studio 12, which I use for editing, mainly avchd files shot on my camcorder. Pinnacle also can't open avi files). Maybe it is the Haali video splitter which comes with Coreavc professional codec I use to play avchd files on media player classic and wmp. Interestingly, I can still play all avi content on my computer but I can't open it and edit it in solveig or pinnacle.

Do you have any idea what the problem can be. For your information, the problem doesn't exist with the latest 2.x versions of solveig splitter or with the free solveig avi trimmer. I am stumped, and I can't seem to roll back my computer using system restore for some reason, so I can't fix it that way.

thanks in advance,

Philebus
