Planetary AVI recording can be an intense and CPU hungry process. The native planetary recording in BackyardEOS and BackyardNIKON uses a commercial encoder to create the AVI movie files. However, the encoder may prove to be to much on some computer configuration and in some cases may not even complete the video encoding BackyardEOS and BackyardNIKON both have a built-in alternative which takes less CPU. This alternative is VirtualDub. VirtualDub is free! I'm not able to -package- VirtualDub part of the BackyardEOS and BackyardNIKON installers due to it's GNU General Public License. However, if you download VirtualDub yourself and follow the instructions below, the planetary recording feature in both BackyardEOS and BackyardNIKON will use VirtualDub instead of its native commercial encoder. 1) Download VirtualDub 32-bits (x86). 2) Open the VirtualDub ZIP folder. 3) Copy VirtualDub.exe and VDub.exe files in your BackyardTEMP download folder. The default location is "My Pictures\BackyardTEMP\download\". 4) That is it. You are now using VirtualDub to encode your AVI. Hope this helps,
