what is ffdshow and do I need it??

  Bifferxyz 15:06 PM 15 Aug 11

Ive attempted to make a photo slideshow using Photostory on windows xp.At some stage that I cant now remember, a window popped up saying something about ffdshow giving 4 options ie Use once, always,never etc.The window vanished before I had time to choose an option as it was on a timed reveal for about 20 secs.Since then, when I preview my slideshow, the photos dont marry up with the different music clips ive imported. I have made other slideshows with this prog.in the past, with no probs.Ive also un-installed and re-installed pstory,made another slideshow and its even worse.I`m very frustrated, please help,

ffdshow is an advanced DirectShow filter and VFW codec that supports many audio and video formats.

For example: H.264, MPEG-4, MPEG-2, H.263, VP3, VP6, Theora, MJPEG, SVQ3, MP3, AC3, DTS, E-AC3, AAC, and Vorbis.

If you think you need it...CLICK HERE

But you would probably be better off getting the K-Lite Codec Pack 7.50 Full...CLICK HERE
