There are several ways to enable support for more video formats:
* [[Bio-Formats]] includes support for reading additional codecs for some video formats. See the Bio-Formats [https://www.openmicroscopy.org/site/support/bio-formats5.4/formats/avi.html AVI] and [https://www.openmicroscopy.org/site/support/bio-formats/formats/quicktime-movie.html QuickTime] pages for the list of supported codecs.
* Enable the ''beta-quality'' FFMPEG [[update site]], which uses native bindings to the [[wikipedia:FFmpeg|FFmpeg]] library to read many video formats. The source code for this update site is [https://github.com/scifio/scifio-javacv/tree/ffmpeg embedded in the scifio-javacv history].
== Transcoding ==
Another strategy is to transcode your video to an uncompressed format using a tool such as QuickTime Pro, VirtualDub or FFmpeg on the command line. The uncompressed video stream can then easily be opened in ImageJ without the need for additional plugins .
