Mirrored and Upside Down!

    OK...I am using SmartMovie from "Lonely cats games" to convert a
    ripped VOB from a DVD to an AVI file so my Nokia phone can play it...

    I have used SmartMovie for other files such as mpeg and the results
    are perfect but when I convert a VOB file to AVI the resulting video
    is upsidedown and also mirrored vertically...(The preview of the video
    before I convert is also mirrored)...

    I have tried to use another program to convert but I have the same
    issues so I know it is not SmartMovie...

    I have read that it can be a codec issue...I have tried to uninstall
    all my video codecs (add/remove progs and in programfiles) but I can't
    find anymore to uninstall!...and I still have the problem (after I
    install a recommened codec such as K-Lite)...

    Does anyone know how I can completely remove ALL video codecs from my
    system so I KNOW I have a clean platform to work from?...Is there such
    a program that will do that for me?...ala how spybot detects and gets
    rid of bots...

    Any online guides may be helpful...

    Hope you can help...

    Cheers...

    Craig....

    Open the Control Panel and then the System applet.
    Then click the Hardware tab and Device Manager.

    Expand the Sound, video and game controllers and double click Video Codecs.

    On the Properties tab you'll see all the video codecs currently installed on
    your pc.

    You can select and Remove them there.

    You can get Virtualdub for free, which has
    horizontal and vertical flip in it's filters
    and opens/saves almost any avi.

    I believe K-Lite is not residing anywhere near the land of recommended
    codec. In fact, I don't blieve its a codec at all, just a witches brew
    of a whole bunch of codecs.

    Wow, just looked up K Lite and its a big collection of codecs and tools.
    Most of them I recognize and should not be a problem, but overall,
    really can't recommend that people dump a bucket-o-programs and codes
    onto their system unless they know they want and or need them. And now
    your method of yanking codecs out of the guts seems to have brought
    things to a standstill. The cure was worse than the disease.

    Cheers...I downloaded it but it doesn't recognise my VOB file which
    has been ripped from the DVD...
