Canopus CDV5 -cannot open avi

A client has given me an .avi that was made with Canopus. I cannot play it on my PC. My Mac cannot play it either.

When I analyze it with Gspot it says it requires the CDV5 codec. When I researched it, it turns out to be a Canopus codec.

On the Canopus site I downloaded its meta driver file of Canopus codecs.

Still cannot open it.

I tried the Canopus utility that supposedly converts its .avis to Microsoft .avis.

Still cannot open it.

I cannot find a download for this cdv5 driver anywhere except a Russian download site (I decided to forego the possible virus site).

I'm about to send this DVD back to the client but before I do, does anyone have any suggestions beyond what I did? I don't know anything about Canopus.

Maybe you should ask at the Canopus forums?

I think this is the Canopus DV50 codec, which I believe you have to purchase, but I'm not certain.

Yes, I should go on the Canopus forum to ask.

The easiest thing for me to do is to ask the client to convert it. If it is a codec to purchase, forget it.
