Hey ChiefDelphi,
I was wondering what you used to play the GMA
video that you put on the web. I tried to play it with
Quicktime, Real, and Windows Media Player. But
nothing work. Well this is the stats that I got of

Video: AVI compressed in codec “DIV3” (Never
heard of it)

Audio: Mp3

Thats very nice compression but most people
need a powerful computer and the software to do
Did anybody was able to play it?

It’s encoded with the Divx :wink: Codec. This is not the same thing as Divx which as an initial competitior to DVD. Divx ;-)'s original origins aren’t too clear. At any rate, it’s an implementation of an early MPEG-4 standard (some say that it was stolen from Microsoft). Off hand I don’t know where you can download the Divx :wink: codec but if you do a search on Google you should be able to find it. You then need to run it in Windows Media Player. It played fine for me then.
