FFDshow is what VLC uses, so if VLC can play it, then FFdshow cant, its MPC thats unable to read the AVI file correctly. I can play other .avi and .mp4 files encoded with a h264 video stream fine in MPC.

Hmm, strange. FFdshow's homepage hasent been updated since 2004, but there are websites on the net that have a version that was released on September 3, 2006.

Anyway, I am certain that ffdshow has a h264 decoder, ive seen it. I dont know why this file isn't playing in MPC but I doubt its an h264 codec issue. Every other player that isnt VLC or mplayer was unable to play this file either, it didnt create a correctly formatted AVI, vlc just manages to ignore the errors.
