Hi John.

My PC browser is Firefox and retains previous visits unless I empty the cache manually. Still only Peter is missing.

Not keen on Edge yet.

This hasn't happened on any other site I visit but then contact here is possibly closest to Flickr's way of doing things but there you click on the 'reply' icon but it uses an @ embedded into the background I think.

Still, if we are all suffering equally 😌

Which version of MovAvi did you use - I have 15 and it opens the file

Hi John.

I tried it in the latest, 20. and got the error message.




Hi both: I've asked Movavi support for an explanation and will report back if/when I get one.

It's taken them three weeks (and a chaser) but here is their reply:

 Thank you for contacting us! 
   We are really sorry to keep you waiting.  The earlier versions of Movavi Video Converter used to support the external codecs for opening videos.   Unfortunately, we had to change that due to internal and copyright reasons.   If you happen to have any screen recording tool, we would suggest recording that video during the playback to turn it to the desired format that way.

Hi and welocome to the forum.

The issue @William-Murphy was having has already been solved - see page 2 of this topic.

However it is good to know that there are alternatives to DVDate which was recommended by Magix.
