Bioformats AVI open in FIJI

Hello,

I am a neuroscience phd student using FIJI to count thrashing in worms (using another plugin). I cannot import the AVI I need to analyse and continue to get this error when using bioformats (see below). I have absolutely no skill in coding, so if possible, I would be grateful for plain instructions. I have also tried QT video importer with no luck.

loci.formats.UnsupportedCompressionException: 875967048 not supported
at loci.formats.in.AVIReader.readChunk(AVIReader.java:712)
at loci.formats.in.AVIReader.initFile(AVIReader.java:322)
at loci.formats.FormatReader.setId(FormatReader.java:1389)
at loci.plugins.in.ImportProcess.initializeFile(ImportProcess.java:499)
at loci.plugins.in.ImportProcess.execute(ImportProcess.java:142)
at loci.plugins.in.Importer.showDialogs(Importer.java:140)

Thank you,
Danny

Hi Danny, the exception is due to the H264 codec not being supported in Bio-Formats. The following threads have reported similar issues and may be of help

I have good experience using the FFMPEG update site, providing the File › Import › Movie (FFMPEG) command.
