The famous INIT error but happening in a very strange way
« on: July 31, 2016, 02:04:37 pm »
Hey guys

Im having an issue while trying to record using DXTORY. The INIT error, but it´s happening in a very strange way.

Im recording gameplay from emulators and it works flawlessly in SNES9x using Xvid codec. But when I change the emulator (e.g switch to MAME) the INIT error happens and I cannot record any longer using XVID codec. If I switch to x264 codec it works (the original DXtory codec works too and I dont know about the others). But not with XVID. I happen to try every emulator I have in my computer and the only one cappable of recording whith DXTORY using XVID is SNES9x! Why is that?

Im interested in recording using XVID because I think this one is the best option in terms of Quality x File Size.

Any ideas on what I should do to fix this?

Thanks!

That is strange, what version of Dxtory are you using and what ver. of windows ?

If you have to keep using xvid , then I would either try to reset its settings or uninstall and carefully remove settings from the registry ( backup first ).  Reinstall and set it up as needed.

x264 is a better choice overall and the only advantage to xvid is that it can be configured for light cpu usage.

Using Windows 10 ?  Try the latest version first http://exkode.com/dxtory-downloads-en.html

Some codecs *require* that your video resolution is multiple of 8 or 16 pixels in width & height. Is your app running on such resolution?

Malix I think you nailed it. How odd... When I change to default resolution the thing works normally...
