Just installed it but it doesn't seem to recognise the file. It doesn't scan it.
In VLC player it shows upside down. Only the first image. The time bar advances but the video is stuck on the first image

Just in case anyone needs to do this in the future:
I downloaded RemoteViewlog from the Geovision website (under support-downloads-Video management software-GV-VMS)
In the viewlog software is an icon with a piece of paper and a magnifying glass. Click on this and go to Reload Database and navigate to the avi file.
You can then re-export the clip through the AVI icon. On the settings tab of the pop up you can select the WMV9 codec instead of the deafult Geovision codec.
This exported clip can be opened in standard Windows Media Player
4 Years later, and this came in Handy. Thank you Gert!
