Windows 7: Indeo 5.x codec

06 Mar 2011   #1

Windows 7 64-bit
Indeo 5.x codec

I have Win 7 Professional 64-bit and Windows Media Player Ver 12.0.

I have a number of old video clips produced using a Logitech web cam. These played successfully under XP in my old PC but with my new PC I get the sound but no picture.

GSpot says that the codec for them is Indeo 5.x. A little googling led me to the Ligos Corporation who now supply them. However, the Ligos site says that Indeo codecs are not supported for use with Vista or Win 7. Furthermore they are not free and I'd only want them for a few legacy videos.

Does anyone know where a can download a suitable free codec - I'd prefer not to have to use a codec pack.

I realise that something like VLC might play the clips but, with a new PC, I'm trying to keep it as uncluttered as possible (probably a vain hope ) and not install programs willy nilly.

Alternatively, might something like SUPER work to convert them into something playable - I had it on my old PC but, again, I'm trying to avoid installing unnecessary programs?

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

open a 'command prompt' using a rightclick, select, 'Run as Administrtor'
type: cd C:\Windows\SysWOW64 (32bit users can skip this step) - press enter
type: regsvr32 ir50_32.dll - press enter

to undo what you have done, type: regsvr32 /u ir50_32.dll
there is an error during unregistration, but it does remove it from being active
