Did you download them as specific plug-ins for vegas video where their description said they would allow you to use them to compress your videos?

If not, just downloading them as a codec to let you watch videos in that compression doesnít necessarily mean you can compress your own videos in vegas, you need a specifically made plug-in.

Perhaps you have added them to the wrong directory in vegas, do they come with a ReadMe file ?

What codecs are they and where did u get them from?

Hope this helps.

I have no idea where to put the codec's, i just installed them... where am i suppose to put them?

Also, before this i had vegas 5, but hten upgraded to 6, but, now the codec's arent working, with 5, i "think" i just installed them, but i remember having trouble but i am not sure how i fixed it.

Perhaps you have added them to the wrong directory in vegas, do they come with a ReadMe file ? nope, its an .exe

What codecs are they and where did u get them from? DefilerPack Divx Xvid ( not sure where to put it) eViewstreamD (not sure)
