freeware DV codec for Icarus?


(RipSting) #1

I’m trying to find a DV codec that I can use with the Icarus software for video stabalization. I found a freeware linux codec at http://sourceforge.net/projects/libdv/, but I have yet to find a windows version. I don’t really want to pay $50 to buy a codec. Tried searching online with no luck. Anyone know a place to get one?

why need a dv codec? icarus can handle dv-encoded files on it’s own and for any non dv-encoded video you can use divx or about any codec installed in your system…

if you want to export a movie from icarus there is a slight problem or atleast for me icarus doesn’t allow any output with codecs. but it’s not such a big deal to export it as uncompressed avi and encode in virtualdub or some other prog like that.

that’s my 2 cents…

How do you export as uncompressed avi? The only option I’ve found in the save dialog box is for DV format. And when I try and save in DV it reports “unsupported movie format”. If I don’t need a DV codec, great! But I haven’t found a way around it.

I got that too.
This program looks pretty interesting, but I can’t use it if it doesn’t let me save anything!
