Vegas will not open video converted from FLV properly

    Since Vegas Video 6 won't import an .FLV video, I used Moyea FLV to
    Video Converter to convert an .FLV Youtube video to AVI format. WM
    Player (I think ver 10) plays the resulting AVI video fine! However,
    when I open it in Vegas Video 6 to manipulate the video a bit, only
    the audio track loads into the time line! ITs a good AVi file if WM
    PLayer plays it, right?

    You did not tell us which video and audio format your AVI file is in.
    (AVI is not a video format in itself; it's only a container format that
    can hold video and audio streams compressed with various codecs.) You
    can find this out by using a tool called "GSpot":

    There is something called FLVSPlitter, which is a DirectShow filter that
    should allow opening FLV files straight into all modern Windows video
    applications, without conversion. ("Modern", in this context, means that
    the application must support DirectShow filters instead of mere AVI
    format and VfW/VCM/ACM codecs.)

    If you encounter a program that does not allow that, it is also possible
    to use FLVSplitter in combination with AviSynth. This way you can
    frameserve the video and audio data in uncompressed format to almost any

    If even that doesn't work, you can frameserve from AviSynth to
    VirtualDub and recompress the video and audio streams with any AVI
    codecs that Vegas _can_ handle.

    See the following web pages for more information:

    Vegas does this to me if I try to bring any Xvid and Divx avi's into it.
    Even though all the codes are there and I can play them without problem.

    You can run it through virtualdub and kick out the separate streams and
    put them in vegas and it will do just fine.

    Please use IYUV codec encode for Vegas.
