Hey all,

All I'm trying to do is convert my Samsung Vid Camera files to a compressed format, say half the original size, add a watermark, and convert them to flash, so I can upload them to my website.

Every program I try either s ays there is no codec installed, even though they play fine in Jet Audio and other programs, or they don't compress it far enough if they do read the file..

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Try klite codec pack

You will probably find that the Samsung format is proprietary and this is why other programs cannot read it.

There are many programs which allow you to convert files. It mainly relies on you having compression codecs (rather than just the decompression codecs) on your system.

Side note, from experience and other forum boards, stay away from codec packs. I, like many others, had nothing but problems with video play back and encoding when using them. Best bet is to download and install individual codecs (xvid, divx, etc.) when using them. For video playback without worring about codecs, try VLC - http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

Codec packs are fine and usually contain all the codecs which you have to pay for otherwise.

You can always to a custom install and pick what you want out of the pack.
