machine. I then tried to play the video on Vista Ultimate, but the video doesn't play (only the sound). I'm playing your tutorial which does work in Vista. What are your settings (codec used) on the above tutorial?

This is an update to previous: I finally got the MSU codec installed on Vista by right clicking on MSU app and installing with admin privileges. After the codec was installed the compressed by MSU avi’s played on Vista, but soon after I had a core system dump (first one in 7 years…win 2000 b-4 sp1) Fortunately, I was able to do a system restore to yesterday. After restore MSU file was not installed and the videos didn’t work again. So, the above tutorial you show on this page must not be compressed with MSU or with cam studio’s codec…is this correct?

Sorry to hear about your crash. You are correct the videos I publish on the net are not encoded with msu becauase, the services that host the videos do not support the MSU codec.
for viewing on your computer or cd then the MSU codec is fine. I'm trying to get blip.tv and showmedo.com to support the MSU codec. I know of no reason why The MSU codec should make Vista crash. I will ask the MSU people about this.

I am on a Mac 10.4.9, Safari 2.1 browser, with Flip-4-Mac Studio version and cannot see your .wmv tutorials - getting the audio, just no video. Also tried it on Firefox 2.0 Mac. Haven't tried running this on my Windows XP Parallels install yet.

My friend Lucas has trouble with these vids on a Mac as well. Not sure how ogg works for you in the newer videos.
