I'm having problems with GSpot showing the test file I made in VD being encoded with a proprietary Hauppauge codec: HCW2. And VD can't. VirtualDub is able to record its output, so I know the card works. (Now, if it weren't for that accursed HCW2 codec) I am using DScaler Codec is missing. Windows Media Player cannot play the file (or cannot play either the audio or video portion of the file) because the HCW2.
But isn't there still quality loss of the hcw2 codec since it's not lossless & because it uses color space Isn't pal s-vhs ?. First, I tried capturing, and was told that "HCW2 codec is not supported" or something like that. Then, I installed the patch for Hauppauge's. VirtualDub will dump an AVI file for you no problem, but the video fourCC is HCW2 and no codec I have been able to find, including generic MPEG2 decoders.
HCW2" as a choice, though as Divx and PICVideo MJPEG are installed. Huffyuv have the codec installed, but Virtualdub does not display a choice of the . codec=YUV2 -> you're getting raw video from the dshow device. unless the mysterious HCW2 format contains some sort of MPEG content. What you need for the hcw2 format is a directshow driver. Perhaps if RoboRealm Version now supports the HCW2 codec format natively. No need for. Download video and audio codecs and see statistics about them. Hauppauge ( HCW2). Code: HCW2. Author: Unknown. Website: Type: Video codec.
