Hello,

I have an error when I choose a video:
"Your chosen video format is incompatible with videowrap. Please choose another."

Format:
H.264 1280 x 720, IMA 4.1, Stéréo 44,100 KHz, 10.33 mbits/s

IPS : 30


What can I do to solve this problem?
Which formast/codecs are supported?

Thanks.

What type of camera are you using? I don't recognize the format...
And about codecs format, quicktime is preferred, but it is compatible with AVI, MPEG, WMV, and more...Your format ought to be compatible.

This is a JVC HDD camera and a quicktime video (.mov).
I encoded video with compressor.

Thanks.

I'm not sure Videowrap is compatible with H.264. That is a fairly modern codec, and Videowrap is old discontinued software. Try exporting to a different codec and see if that works. Something less compressive might be better anyway, if you plan on compressing again via VideoWrap.

Try downloading video wrap lite, if you use windows. Although it may have less features, it appears to be more recent and you might get lucky. Install the latest version of quicktime as well, I didn't and it screwed up my video formats. Also what format are you trying to convert to? Try that and I hope it helps...

Just to point this out. Videowrap is incompatible with AVI video format.

Not quite sure what you mean. Videowrap lite is perfectly compatiable to convert AVI movies. I use that format alot. No, it can't convert them to AVI but it is compatible with it...unless your talking about the full version...

I'm a little confused. My videowrap has successfully converted many videos that were AVI. Did I just get lucky?
