[Solved] Playing MagicYUV files in VLC media player?
VLC cannot decode and play videos I record in Dxtory using MagicYUV codec. I'd really like to make it work in VLC instead of windows media player, but I don't know how to do this. Any help?
You need to have the MagicYUV VLC plugin installed inside the VLC plugins folder. Install VLC to the default location, the re-install the MagicYUV codec. During installation, it will notify you of the VLC plugins being installed.
Where do you have VLC installed?
What version of VLC are you using?
What version of MagicYUV are you using?
Hi - some years ago I transcoded all of my old files to magicyuv. Recently I rediscovered them but a fresh install of VLC and a fresh install of MagicYUV is not working. Gives the 'M8Y4' error.
VLC: 3.0.16 Vetinari
MagicYUV: 2.3.1 standard
I copied the x86 dll from the installed path, to the codec dir in the vlc installed dir. When I run VLC, however, it does not list the plugin as loaded. Any assistance would be absolutely appreciated!
Simply reinstall the codec using the installer, it will copy the correct DLL depending on VLC version and compiled VLC architecture (32/64-bit). This only works if VLC is installed in the default location.
For manually copying the DLL you need to copy the correct one. That depends on VLC version and whether the VLC you have installed is 32 or 64 bits. For 64 bits, you need to copy from the x64 subdir, for 32 bits you need to copy from the x86 subdir.
