Dear all,
I need to watch a tutorial prepared in camtasia format. Following the 
instructions I copied the tsccvid.dll library to /usr/local/lib/codecs. 

Sometimes when I watch camtasia AVI files I get:

Opening video decoder: [ffmpeg] FFmpeg's libavcodec codec family
[camtasia @ 0x8564f68]Camtasia warning: RGB24 is just guessed
Selected video codec: [ffcamtasia] vfm:ffmpeg (TechSmith Camtasia Screen Codec 

and I can watch the presentation.

Unfortunately most of the times I get:

Opening video decoder: [ffmpeg] FFmpeg's libavcodec codec family
[camtasia @ 0x8564f68]Camtasia error: unknown depth 32 bpp
Could not open codec.
VDecoder init failed :(
Opening video decoder: [vfw] Win32/VfW video codecs
Loading codec DLL: 'tsccvid.dll'
Loaded DLL driver tsccvid.dll at 7f840000
VDec: vo config request - 800 x 600 (preferred csp: Packed YUY2)
[PP] Using codec's postprocessing, max q = 9.
Could not find matching colorspace - retrying with -vf scale...
Opening video filter: [scale]
The selected video_out device is incompatible with this codec.
VDecoder init failed :(
Cannot find codec matching selected -vo and video format 0x63637374.
Read DOCS/HTML/en/codecs.html!

Well I read codecs.html, but could not find a hint...sorry!

Can anybody please help me? I really need that presentation and I haven't 
windows on my laptop...
