Enforcing vfw decoding through Avisynth - Selur - 27.05.2017

Sometimes there are .avi files which can't be decoded through libav/ffmpeg, but there are vfw decoders.
In case those vfw decoders are installed Hybrid can use them through AviSource()-Avisynth filter.

To enforce the usage of Avisynth and the AviSource filter in Hybrid to the following (before loading your source file):
  • activate "Config->Internals->Avisynth->Always use Avisynth"
    This forces Hybrid to use Avisynth
  • deactivate "Config->Internals->Avisynth->No Avisynth during Preview"
    This allows Avisynth decoding during the normal preview; only needed if the 'Avisynth Preview' isn't enough)
  • activate "Filtering->Avisynth->Misc->Prefer AviSource for avi input"
    This tells Hybrid to check the vfw decoders in the system and use AviSource whenever the source is .avi and there is a vfw decoder installed.

Cu Selur

Ps.: Not that Hybrid uses 32bit Avisynth so even on 64bit system only 32bit vfw decoders are used.
