How can I read video file (.avi)

4 views (last 30 days)
Hello.
I am trying to read video using "VideoReader"
I attached test videos. There are two files.
I can read "person01_boxing_d1_uncomp.avi" file, but I can't read "person01_boxing_d4_uncomp.avi"
How can I solve this problem? I'm using Win7 64 on laptop.
clear all
close all
info = mmfileinfo('person01_boxing_d1_uncomp.avi');
info = mmfileinfo('person01_boxing_d4_uncomp.avi');

Kong - please clarify what you mean by I can't read "person01_boxing_d4_uncomp.avi". Are you observing an error and if so, what is it? Or does it read the avi but you can't play it?

Hello Kong,
I believe that you're referring to the error when using the function mmfileinfo, and not the VideoReader object to read video files, because I did not run into any errors when using the VideoReader object on the files that you shared.
However, I did run into a "Could not get file information" error when using the mmfileinfo function with the second file, and the solution to this problem is mentioned in this MATLAB Answer here:
Hope this helps!
