Hi Guys,
Wondering if you can help me. I have recently purchased a HP Touchsmart iq505a running Vista Premium x 64bit. I would normally put my videos from a few different cameras onto my previous OS XP and had no problems but now that I have Vista Premium it doesn't recognise the videos.I keep getting the error message xvidcore.dll not found. I'm trying to find a program to correct this error but because I'm running a x64 bit I can't find anything that is compatible with it.
If any of you can tell me what I can do, it will be very much appreciated. If I have problems I normally would read up on your Forums and find the help there but I can't find anything on the Xvidcore.dll error in here. Thank you so much for your great website as it has been extremley helpful.
Specs: Model Iq505a, Intel(R)Core(TM) 2 Duo CPU T5750@2.00GHz x 2, RAM 4.00gb, System Type 64-bit Operating System.
Thanks heaps

Just for the future, do a Google search for MediaPlayer Classic Homecinema. You can download the x64 version which comes integrated with ffdshow, a sort of all-in-one video decoder codec. It's a great little player, and it weighs in at only about 7MB for a fully featured player on par with, if not exceeding in many ways, Windows Media Player, complete with a set of codecs to decode almost any video file you throw at it.

If you check the links to the discussion thread about the program on the Doom9 forums, you can usually find unofficial builds that are quite a bit more recent than the official ones. However, there is always the small added chance that these newer builds will have bugs or something will be broken. Haven't had any problems with the last couple versions myself, and for the most part, the core program is very stable and mature.

Thank you Jimmy for your reply. I will certainly keep this one for future reference, it looks like a good little program.
Thank you very much.
