How to Install Indeo Video Codec for Windows 7/8/8.1 and 10


Well I decided to do a tutorial on this cause there is very much available on the web on how to install the Indeo Video Codec.  Now of course you might be wondering why its important to install the codec.  Some older games used the codec for FMV's and on modern systems Indeo is no longer the go to codec.  So today were going to install the codec on a modern machine so you can play your favorite game.

There is only one step:

Right click command prompt using the Cortana Search or Run on other Windows operating systems and Run as Administrator.
then type: cd C:\Windows\SysWOW64 "if your a 32bit OS user you can skip this step"  press enter
then type: regsvr32 ir50_32.dll - press enter

if you want to undo then type: regsvr32 /u ir50_32.dll

The information came from Seven Forums by the user Shark007 and was slightly edited by me. You can find Shark007's post @ https://goo.gl/iUgQmD
