I am trying to open one avi file with VLC player. But it show the following error:

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No suitable decoder module:

VLC does not support the audio or video format "MIL". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Could anyone tell me what problem this is and how the file can be opened?

Thanks in advance.

AVI is a container format.  It can store many different types of video and audio.

 

In order to play back any specific format, you need a decoder for it.

 

The decoder is sometimes called a codec, shorthand for "encoder/decoder".

 

Search for a codec pack that supports the specific format you need, or try one of the generic super-bundle codec packs and hope it contains yours.

Check out my book, Game Development with Unity, aimed at beginners who want to build fun games fast.

Also check out my personal website at bryanwagstaff.com, where I occasionally write about assorted stuff.

The particular codec you need is the Matrox Imaging codec.

Could you be a more specific about the download version (website) of Matrox Imaging Codec as I am confused which one to download from the net. DO I need to download some video converter like prism too? I am not familiar with this. Please help me.

I downloaded a trial version of Matrox Imaging Library (MIL). Now with code reader I can play that avi file. Suppose I would like to convert it to some other or normal avi format so that I can view with vlc or windows media player. Anyone using MIL please give me some suggestion.
