Hi, I did find this in my search.


From here


Thank you. Using virtualdub (and possibly after installing the codec), I was able to transcode it successfully. I sincerely appreciate this. –  ChrisInEdmonton Apr 12 at 4:36
@ChrisInEdmonton: How did you install the codec? –  harrymc Apr 12 at 13:08
I installed it by running the 'setup.exe' included with the backupplayer. It does NOT provide the time stamp (relevant in this case) when viewed in e.g. Windows media player, but it was 'close enough' for my purposes. I'll use backupplayer while Windows OS's can run it, and transcode when that's no longer true. – 


Good Luck
