I cannot record using MPEG and get the message - Intervideo 3 Mpeg 1/2 filter not installed on this computer in the MPEG tab. I have followed the instructions from another post on this issue and installed these . Although installation of the filters seems to go fine, nothing changes on Chris-TV. It's seems that it's just not seeing the folders. Is there a way of forcing this?

For info I have a Medion 7134 TV card, running XP
I have already downloaded and installed them from this website : http://mpcodecs.narod.ru (mirror toolsheaven.altervista.org) , first SDK then the encoder.

The encoder files are not properly installed, you might have the same problem as in this topic :
http://forum.chris-tv.com/index.php?showtopic=1098

Follow this steps :
Uninstall Intervideo SDK.
Reboot.
Install Intervideo SDK
Unpack the MPEG Encoder files.
Launch instW2k.cmd.

To install under Windows Vista, read this topic :

I noticed that the filter files can end up in the wrong folder.
Of course it wont work then ...

When you are finished, check so that the files below is in this folder
C:\program files\ChrisTV\Filter (if thats where you installed ChrisTV)

filter.ax
filters.bin
iviaudio.ax
ividemux.ax
ivits.ax
ivivideo.ax

And be sure you run "instW2k.cmd" for Win2k and XP or "instW9x.bat" for Win98
Dont have ChrisTV running while doing this!!

Thanks very much for the info about the filters being installed in the wrong place. I'm guessing that some other application installe them and then Windows thought that everything was installed just fie so when I ran instw2k no action was take.
Even after I moved the filters to the ChrisTV\ilters directory I still had to execute the REG.BAT in that directory file before ChrisTV started working. Before I ran REG.bat, ChrisTV would siply stop responding when I tried to record an MPG file.

I'll be experimenting for the next few weeks but it looks promising so far.

Thanks again

Hi,

Is there a way to use Software Mpeg Recording on WindowsXP Pro x64?

Install Intervideo SDK
Unpack the MPEG Encoder files
Launch instW2k.cmd

is not working here.

I think the filters should be registered another way.

Any ideas? :blink:

Thanks!

a bit late, but yes, there is a way on 64-bit to install the MPEG 1 /2 recording features in Chris TV. I tested this with chris TV 5.55 on windows 7 x64, but as SYSWOW is a windows x64 feature, it should be the same for XP x64 and Vista x64.

- First download the old intervideo 3 package with the filter SDK and the MPEG 1/2 Decoder and Encoder.
- Extract the files to a location like f.i. C:\codec
- Install the Filter SDK.
- Now here's the x64 trick.

We will register the Encoder and Decoder AX-files using 2 self-created batch files which we both will call for the ease "instx64.bat".

You need to place each of these two batches in the same folder as the instw2k.bat files of the mpeg-zip which we extracted in c:\codec.

Also, you need to RIGHT CLICK this batch file and choose "RUN as an Administrator" (i did it with UAC disabled and everything worked immediately)

Now first, to register the DECODER:
copy this text, paste it in a notepad and save it as instx64.bat f.i.:

copy /b /y ivivideo.ax c:\Windows\SysWOW64\
copy /b /y iviaudio.ax c:\Windows\SysWOW64\
copy /b /y ividemux.ax c:\Windows\SysWOW64\
cd c:\Windows\SysWOW64\
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe /s c:\Windows\SysWOW64\iviaudio.ax
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe /s c:\Windows\SysWOW64\ivivideo.ax
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe /s c:\Windows\SysWOW64\ividemux.ax
cd \
pause

So run this batch as an admin, check if there are no errors and if so then close the dos shell. Now go to the folder of the ENCODER and repeat the same procedure with this content in the second instx64.bat:

rem Delete old sdk filters
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe /u /s %windir%\AverTV2K\ivivenc.ax
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe /u /s %windir%\AverTV2K\iviaenc.ax
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe /u /s %windir%\AverTV2K\ivimux.ax
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe /u /s %windir%\AverTV2K\iviwriter.ax
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe /u /s %windir%\AverTV2K\iviscapt.ax
del /f %windir%\AverTV2K\ivivenc.ax
del /f %windir%\AverTV2K\iviaenc.ax
del /f %windir%\AverTV2K\ivimux.ax
del /f %windir%\AverTV2K\iviwriter.ax
del /f %windir%\AverTV2K\iviscapt.ax


rem Copy new files
copy /b /y ivivenc.ax C:\Windows\SysWOW64\
copy /b /y iviaenc.ax C:\Windows\SysWOW64\
copy /b /y ivimux.ax C:\Windows\SysWOW64\
copy /b /y iviwrite.ax C:\Windows\SysWOW64\
copy /b /y iviscapt.ax C:\Windows\SysWOW64\
cd C:\Windows\SysWOW64\
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe /s C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ivivenc.ax
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe /s C:\Windows\SysWOW64\iviaenc.ax
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe /s C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ivimux.ax
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe /s C:\Windows\SysWOW64\iviwrite.ax
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe /s C:\Windows\SysWOW64\iviscapt.ax
cd \
pause

Now open chris TV and enjoy, the MPEG 1 /2 recording feature is available!


grtz

BTW, another hint: if you hear some crackling in the sound watching an channel, and you enabled the option "enable sound by using PCI-bus instead of a cable" then the only way to solve it is effectively by using that line in cable (had this problem with MSI TV anywhere plus tuner with x64 drivers). The PCI-bus feature does not work great on x64, though on the recordings you will not hear that crackling...

Funny, the Recording Settings / MPEG Recording tab has a link to this thread when the software MPEG encoders are not installed. It is easy to understand that we need to install the Intervideo SDK... but there is absolutely no indication about where to download it. I can't find that package on the main ChrisTV web site. A search via Google gives thousands of results, but none of them lead to a download site. So, what are we supposed to do? I had to sign in here, just to be able to ask "where can I download a file that is obviously essential to run ChrisTV under XP, but that is not distributed with the package and that seems impossible to obtain via the program site?"

So, here it is: Where can I download the Intervideo SDK?
