Suffice it to say that there are some applications on the market, such as muvee, that capture DV-AVI video and store it in Type 1 format. And there are some applications, such as Pinnacle Studio 8, that can only read Type 2 formats. This results in a big fat error message when you try to import a video to work with. I used to curse and swear at the Pinnacle software for not supporting Type 1, but now I have a simple solution if I'm ever faced with this problem again: Ulead's DV-AVI converter.
It's a simple 100 KB EXE file that does one thing: it converts a Type 1 DV-AVI file to a Type 2 DV-AVI file - that's it. You might never need this free app, but when you do, you'll find it priceless.
