    My parents have uploaded an AVI file from a camcorder for me to download.

    I've downloaded it, but whenever I open it, a weird "AVI Chuink Viewer" opens. It looks like a graph of some kind.

    The text with it says the following:

    :confused: Anyone know what this means?

    Thanks

    Interleaving means it's sending a mixture of audio and video at the same time instead of just a big chunk of video then a big chunk of audio.

    In most re-encoders there should be an option somewhere. (sorry i'm not much help)

    An encoder turns one type of format of video into another.

    Say from DVD to XVID(it's a codec to compress the video)

    Or they can do other things with it.

    Thats a link for an encoder that is quite easy to use, but i'm not sure what the free sample is like.

    There is also a free one I know of but I can't remember the name, i'll go look it up later bit busy at the minute.

    Thanks :)

    So I could use this to reinterleave my AVI file without having to encode it into something else?

    Thanks
