I have started playing about with movies on my E550 again and was trying to put the results into an Xatshow slide show.
I came across the problem of the Fuji movie format of avi not being "true" avi and so had a problem with the conversion.
After a lot of messing about with trial software including using one bit of software to convert from mjpeg to avi then another bit of software to convert from avi to mpeg I got TMPGEnc to work.
TMPGEnc http://www.tmpgenc.net/ is freeware and was about to give up with it until I accidentally found the answer on another forum :
I hope this is of help to othersIf you're having problems opening an .avi file with TMPGEnc in order to encode it into MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 format, but the AVI plays just fine with your Media Player (or any other video player installed on your PC), this is normally the first thing you need to do:
Go to the TMPGEnc's Option menu and select Environmental settings. From there, select the VFAPI Plug-in tab.
There you see a list of various reader plugins installed for the TMPGEnc. The one that's called DirectShow Multimedia File Reader is the one that we're looking at. As a default, its priority is -1. Select the item and right click on it. Choose Higher priority and repeat this until the "Priority" for this item is higher than any other plugin's priority in the list.
Now, your AVI should open nicely.
