But when I downloaded it, it worked.

I could only play it in VDub, but when I did watch it, it was pretty damn funny.

Perhaps not the greatest in terms of technical skill, but funny all the same smile

Cheers,
Arktic.

Great clip but what on earth is it encoded as!?

I finally got it to work using an Intel Indeo codec but it was crackly and stuttering a lot. Its definatly not windows media 10 or divx as I have those and other similar codecs. The audio is uncompressed PCM so thats why that is easy to get! razz

It really deserves more people seeing it and if I had trouble being an advanced user of codecs then a lot of people are gonna not be able to see it unless they luckily have the right one. I would strongly suggest trying to put it into quicktime mp4 or divx as that is what most people can watch and dont forget to encode the audio as well because at the moment its just taking space unnecesarily.

Sollthar fighting with a big arrow really amused me. smile

Just checked the file with a program which checks both audio and video codecs.

The file is encoded in the "Indeo Interactive" codec (IV50). Never heard of it. The sound is just normal PCM sound.

The beginning 15 seconds are the best. The FX look good but would have been better mixed with real video footage. Still it's nice to get a look at what we can expect from Effects Lab!
