FAQ

 

  • Why do I need to use OrenVideo?

Well, you don’t! but if you have couple of minutes to hear me out, you may change your mind.

Some OrenVideo highlights:

  • Simple and easy to use.
  • No dependencies or any other external files/libraries used, just one small library.
  • Low memory usage! On average no more than 2.5 of your video frame size.
  • Lighting fast! Fast enough to use for in game videos, cut scenes, special effects and even UI!
  • One API to rule them all! All platforms use the same easy and simple API.
  • Internal alpha channel for transparent videos.
  • You don’t need to license an audio codec. OrenVideo comes with a built-in audio codec supporting 8:1 compression ratio.
  •  What kind of files can I convert ?

OrenVideo can convert any file that Windows or QuickTime can read and play.

  •  I get an error when trying to convert one of my videos.

This means OrenVideo doesn’t recognize this file, or:

  • The file may be corrupted.
  • The file might be an AVI or QuickTime video that uses a video codec that isn't installed or is installed improperly.

Try installing QuickTime or updating your codecs. We recommend installing a codec pack such as k-lite codec pack / windows 7 codec pack / xvid codec from xvid web site to solve codec issues.

  •  Can I play other video formats with OrenVideo?

No, OrenVideo can only play internal .ovd files and doesn’t support any other video format.

  •  I’m converting my video and I can’t see anything in the player.

Check if your video contains an alpha channel. If it doesn’t contain one, make sure the alpha channel encoding flag is not set when converting this video. (for more info see the SDK documentation)
