Q: Sony Vegas Avi Files No Video
"I have a Windows 7 64-bit Gateway desktop and I have my Sony Vegas 13 installed on it. Whenever I import AVI files into Sony Vegas I could only see the audio. So I downloaded a Divx and Xvid codec, which solved my AVI problem temporarily. Now
the Xvid codec won't work and I'm back to seeing no video for AVI files in Sony Vegas. PLEASE HELP!!!"
