    I cannot get videos to work in Civ 2 MGE, Windows 10 1607, no matter what I've tried. I've tried registering the i50_32.dll file and the other indeo files in the SysWOW64 folder.

    I've installed the indeo installer I've seen out there

    I've installed FFDShow that I've seen recommended, although upon further inspection that seems like a never-would've-worked approach...as it seems Indeo 4 and 5 are proprietary and FFDshow only works for Indeo 2 and 3.

    I've even re-rendered the videos in several different avi containers....and recreated ISO files for Civ2 to pull from....no dice.

    Has anyone gotten videos to work in Windows 10 1607?

    If so, I wonder if you got it working before the 1607 anniversary update....and I wonder if those of us who didn't do the Indeo dll registration prior to the update are out of luck.

    Is there some other solution?

    I can render the videos in whatever format necessary if the game could still load and play the videos.

    I'd also love to have the 64-bit-patched Civ2 exe not require the CD, and have it pull videos from its own folder...but that's a secondary issue.......first gotta get the videos to play!! :) Searched all the no-cd cracks and even the hex editor option seems like no good...as I found a user who tried it and said the lines of code to change were nowhere to be found.

    Thanks for any help anyone can offer!

    Hello,

    I have the same problem with W10 1803 and ToT. I would like to use the ToTPP (including the no-cd patch) and have the videos. The sound of the videos is there, but not the movies...

    (I am french)

    Thank you

    Goodbye

    Yes, I tried Indeo 4 instead:
