Hi Hitokiri,

good evening. if you have time tonight here is what's going on (if you 
don't have time please say so) I think I know how mmg works, but I can't 
get my files to load.then I downloaded virtual dub, it loads my files 
but I can't figure out how it works  .
well I'm leaving, if you have a suggestion or if i'm missing something 
stupid,  please mail me at hitokiri AT ilse.nl[/quote]

i am sorry i couldnt help you last night via MSN, i was busy with other 
things. copying the matroska-users at lists.matroska.org Mailing list on 
your problem, so that other people can also benefit from your problems, 
or throw in suggestions.

To create MKV files, you need VirtualdubMod, not Virtualdub. You get it 
from http://sf.net/projects/virtualdubmod . Its funny that your AVI 
files wont load in mmg, thats the first time we have these problems. mmg 
normally will eat any kind of AVI files you throw at it.

Try the following :

1. After you open your files in Virtualdub ( or VirtualdubMod ), set 
both 'video' and 'audio' to 'direct stream copy' and then save it a new 
AVI with 'file' 'save AVI'. Then try to load this new AVI file in mmg.

2. If you open it in VirtualdubMod, set 'video' to 'direct stream copy' 
and then 'file' 'save as MKV'

Please report back to the mailing list how it went
