Running cell profiler with .avi

Hi,
I’m trying to run cellprofiler with an .avi movie as an input but I get :
File “cellprofiler\modules\loadimages.pyc”, line 2183, in get_frame_count
NameError: global name ‘formatreader’ is not defined.
can you please help me figure out what’s wrong?
Thanks,
Roni

Hi Roni,
Would you be able to post the avi in question so we can take a look?

Hi Mark,
thank you for the replay,
I can’t attach the movie since i get the message : "The extension avi is not allowed"
so I mailed it to you under the name : “avi - Roni Rosner”, I will be happy if you will look at it
Thanks,
Roni

Hi Roni,
I get a different error, although in approximately the same location. We use BioFormats to open image and movie files, and according to this page, only certain compression formats are supported (see under “Additional information”). Can you save your movie in one of these formats and try again?
