First of all, go to file - open via avisynth. Things are pretty obvious, and they should normally be in most Vdub versions:



If they aren't, you can always try doing it with the script editor. Try to open the file via avisynth, and once you get the error message, go to "Tools - Script Editor". There, change "AVISource" to "DirectShowSource", so it should be like this:



If the problem still consists after that, you're obviously missing any form of .h264 codecs. Downloading CCCP (Combined Community Codec Pack)

All you need is Win-AVI

It will convert most any media type (the only exception is .flv files).
