    How to add support for FPS1 codec?

    I made some videos with fraps and i can't open them in pinnacle studio 20 ultimate 64 bit (i have got 64 bits version of windows 10)
    Fraps is using its own codec to create avi videos. The name of the codec is FPS1 so, how to add support for FPS1 codec?

    I need these videos so, you need to do something to support FPS1 codec.

    Can you make a plugin or update so we can use avi with FPS1 codec?
    Thanks!

    avi video sample with the FPS1 codec:

    Sorry, I don't believe support for PS20 is on going. It's 3 years old. But I don't even think PS23 supports that codec. If you look at Pinnacle's website, there is no support.

    You can't.

    They won't. Either this proprietary codec can't be used by any 3rd party software, or it can be used with royalties to pay. In the last caqse, Corel won't pay these royalties for a bunch of customers who need to edit fraps videos.
    Why don't you simply transcode it using an external tool ?

    I contacted Fraps support and they told me the codec FPS1 is on my system since Fraps is installed, the pinnacle is just not using that codec from my system so it's pinnacle thing.


    I think pinnacle should investigate that and get all the codecs that are installed on user's system working.

    good luck with that one. How many other people in the forum have complained about fraps not working properly?

    Maybe Fraps should change their codec to something that everyone else uses instead of the world having to change for it. Relive and Plays.tv work great with Pinnacle.

    That's the best way to get a messy application.

    Pinnacle Studio is using its own versions of the decoders, not the ones present in Windows. This way they avoid having to rely on external filters in order to avoid bugs and unexpected behaviors. And they make sure that Studio is using legit codecs for which Corel has paid royalties if royalties need to be paid.

    How about giving up a 27 years old container too (AVI) and adopt a more modern format ?
