QMC ver 3.6.5 Conversion Difficulties -- Tried Everything

Postby alphafactor » 02 Mar 2009, 14:42

I could use some help here. I'm pretty sure I did a due-diligence run-through of the various self-help steps.

I have a *.FLV file that I am trying to convert into something that is more 'universally compatible.' Something like... a *.WMV file or a *.AVI file.

But, efforts to do so with QMC version 3.6.5 have not worked thus far.

Let me go through some of my steps thus far.

1)Downloaded and installed QMC 3.6.5 on a 32bit Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 system without any problems.

2)Searched through forums for possible solutions for problems as they are described below. (one theory also described below)

3)Launched QMCv365

4)Using the EASY MODE interface, dragged and dropped a file named "Bear Darwin Award -- Hi-Def.flv" into the program.

5)Selected option: DIVX DROPDOWN,BUTTON#2 which is:

(note: also tried various others including DIVX DROPDOWN,BUTTON#1; DIVX DROPDOWN,BUTTON#3;DIVX DROPDOWN,BUTTON#4; various XVID DROPDOWN buttons; various WINDOWSMEDIAPLAYER DROPDOWN buttons; various QUICKTIME DROPDOWN buttons. But, none proved effective.)

6)Pressed START CONVERSION button

7)Several seconds passed

8)Status field changed to: "Error [Cannot get resampling context]"

9)Was able to retrieve TECHNICAL INFO from internal interface:

CompleteName : C:\Users\MongooseEdge\Desktop\Copy of Killed By Bear After Taking Drugs -- Hi-Def

Resolution/String : 16 bit3"

10)The Media-Player application that I am using is: "GOM PLAYER * V 2.1.15 - 2009/02/12". It has been a very reliable program thus far and allows me to play the "Bear Darwin Award -- Hi-Def.flv" very easily.

11)I am not using Windows Media Center.

12)The download link for the file "Bear Darwin Award -- Hi-Def.flv" is: http://www.filesavr.com/beardarwinaward--hi-def

13)It has occurred to me that the "Bear Darwin Award -- Hi-Def.flv" file may have been encoded with "an unsupported codec" as you described to a fellow at: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=349 . However, if this is the case, if you could please advise me of an alternative idea -- a different conversion program, perhaps -- I would appreciate it.

14)I deeply admire the easy interface you've designed for this program, as well as the incredible versatility it offers for casual users. If you could help me figure out how to properly convert this file into something that is more 'universally compatible' (something like... a *.WMV file or a *.AVI file), I would be greatly appreciative.

Hello and welcome ,

This might be the answer :
Format : AVC
Format/Info : Advanced Video Codec

This a new format in flv and is not yet convertible with ffmpeg.

Probably will in the future as many others but for the time being unfortunately the teams working on it do not have yet a solution.

Of course once this will be available we will include it in our application.

As for a possible solution you may want to try AVS video Converter but it is not free and I am not sure if they convert AVC codec

Hope this answers your question.

Have a nice day
