I’ve been trying to import the avi files from my Canon A630 Powershot into Adobe Premiere Pro, but kept getting Compression not supported errors. I did a search and found this codec: m3jpegv3.exe
After I installed it I was able to import the avi without a problem. I’m running Windows Vista on my machine by the way.
i think the site I got from charges, but they have a trial period…the funny thing is, after I installed it a Trial Period has Expired window popped up, I clicked ok and it kept working…so I’m not sure what it means…but anyway…it works!
Update: The codec cost $20 which isn’t bad. I ussed my Visa and I had to sign up with Verified by Visa which is free…it raised a red flag when I saw that though. you’ll then get your key to enter in the codec.
If you don’t register after installing, it seems to disable the videos…by that I mean, you can hear them but can’t see them. There may be a free version out there some where, but this one works and was only $20, so I’m happy.
You can do a search for that file or get it from this site: http://www.morgan-multimedia.com
