    Where did you download it from?  The product has been EOL (End if LIfe) for a very long time.  Avid no longer provides the download, or the authorizaion codes.

    Hi,

    It doesn't have any codes or anything because it's no longer an Avid product, and no, nobody is going to tell you where to get a keygen.  Most people here use Avid software & hardware to make  a living, so if I were you I'd stop asking for hacks to get Free DV to work.

    good luck,
    Carl

     I was about to reload my copy of Avid Free DV (I have found my serial number and authorisation code) but got the message to the effect "not supported on this operating system".  I am running Vista 64 bit.  Is it Vista or 64 bit which it does not want to play with?

    I never actually used FreeDV when I had it loaded on my previous PC.  How different is it from Media Composer? 

    Actually, I have never used either and wanted to have a quick evaluation. I gather that AVID is difficult to learn unless you learn it properly.  Would you suggest trying one of these two AVID products or going for an inexpensive consumer product like Pinnacle which may be easier?  I want to be able to edit different formats which I might download from the web including flv files and preferably switch between formats.

    Grateful for any advice.

     Yes it's Vista. Free DV was never developed for Vista and is EOL. If you are a student, you can get Avid MC soft for $295. It doesn't get better than that.

    Hi,

    Hugh Meares:

    Like BLKDOG said, it's Vista.

    Hugh Meares:
    How different is it from Media Composer? 

    It's very similar to Media Composer; it just doesn't have a lot of the capability Media Composer has.

    Hugh Meares:

    I didn't find Avid tough to learn, but I came from a linear editing background and the paradigms are similar.

    Hugh Meares:

    If this is for your own hobby, then I'd say get something smaller and easier.  If you're going to be working to make money, I'd get Media Composer.  Using stuff from the web will be a bit of a trial, but once you get the hang of it it's not that bad.

    good luck,
    Carl

     Would you be able to give me the serial number and authorisation code.  I have had to reload mine and with the product no longer available I can't reinstall it.

    Many thanks ... Alan

    Hi Alan,

    As was said earlier in this thread, there is no way to get a serial number or authorization code, because FreeDV has been end of life for over a year.  I'm sorry I don't have better news.

    good luck,
    Carl

    Actually, FreeDV does work with Vista. You need to change the install .exe to be in XP compatibility mode. Then once installed, run it in XP compatibility mode.

    As far as the key goes - you'll have to get one from somebody who got one, but doesn't want it anymore. There may be millions of keys out there going unused - if you can get a legal one, there's no reason in the world you couldn't use it.

    Thread locked because it's attracting spammers, and there won't ever be any more Free DV codes.
