View Full Version : Help with H.261 or H.263 codec AVIs?

I'm trying to compress something to H.263 (I'll settle for H.261) AVI format, and it doesn't seem to like any of the frame sizes I try, at all. I've been trying to send it to multiples of 16 (everthing from 320x160 up to 640x480) and it keeps giving me a "resolution not supported" error.

Anyone got any ideas?

All the references I'm able to find reference 176x144 as the prescribed sized. Whatchya trying to do?

Just making an animated texture for a realtime thingy. Anyone with XP seems to have H.261 installed, so that was the obvious maximum-portability codec. Thanks a bundle!

They are intended for internet streams right? With my experience they are of ver low, lossy quality. The new h264 codec is amazing if you can use that. There is a video convertor called SUPER (http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html) which will convert to H264 so I would say check it out. It isnt terribly well known yet but anyone with the latest version of quicktime would be fine.
