Broken: This is the link for the new opening.
Opening
http://files.filefront.com/New+opening7z/;13753102;/fileinfo.html

It contains 3 files. The two big ones should have the file extension .avi and the other is a .txt

Don't have any idea what the problem is though. I just downloaded it and it is fine.

what is the file extension for that? It should be 7z

Just download 7zip it's free. google it it's easy to find. then you can extract it.

The Aeris video is not working for me. I get to the scene where it is supposed to play and all I get is a black screen.

which Aeris video she is in a bunch. The opening, death or funeral. You must be more specific. Anyway make sure you can play the vid in a media player, if you can make sure you can play all the original FMVs from the HDD. Then double check the title of the new vid it must be exactly the same as the original.. They have to be named correctly or they cannot play. If you still cannot get it to play post again with more information, so I actually know what is going on.

The death video is not working. I'm not sure if the funeral works or not because I can't even get to that part yet.
I can play them fine in media player. When it gets to the part where sephy is supposed to stab aeris, the screen just goes black.

I'm at a loss. Is it the 320 or HQ? The HQ must have Aali's custom driver. However you would still see something even without it. Does sound play? Also put the original back in the movies folder and make sure it plays. If the original plays without trouble and your system plays the new vid in a media player then it should work without any trouble, You can use super and try to reencode the video to use a different output container.

I'm using Aalis custom graphics driver. It appears its not only the Aeris fmv.
I tried starting with the new fmv for Aeris opening and that hangs at a black screen too. No audio, whatsoever.
Originals run fine. Only thing with the originals is that my FF7Music shuts down for some reason and I don't hear Aeris theme for the jenova battle.

Sorry for going off topic.
I tried it with both 320 and HQ. Neither worked.

I really don't know what is causing your problem. The opening isn't working you say. Have you tried the new opening credits? Also what is your operating system? You must have the K-lite codec pack(or similar). Other than what I've said I'm unsure as to what the problem is being caused by.

Have you tried to restore the original vids and see if they play correctly.

Okay, this is about my last idea. Run the FFVIIconfig.exe(as an admin.) to stop using Aali's driver. Then make sure you can play the original videos without trouble. Then replace the originals with the new vids in 320x224 quality. If you can play original quality new vids without the new driver, then it's the driver. If the new vids stll won't play then it's a problem with vista.

Wait I need to know what worked. Not using Aali's Driver. That shouldn't be the case. What version of the driver were you using.
I has all the codecs built in.

Well Vista is just a buggy OS to begin with. And Its still new. Just wait till Win 7 is released. I heard Its alot better than Vista.

Actually, I had much more problems with FF7 on XP than on my Vista. I have managed to make the game play most of other videos by first installing K-Lite Codec Pack and then putting FFDShow VFW in charge. Yes, FFDShow Video Decoder does not work with the game but FFDShow VFW is just fine. I did have a little problem of Nero codec's interference with FF7 but that's solved.

About Windows Vista quality as an OS however, I have learned that there is always a cliche in form of "[X] is horrible, fall back to [Y] and wait for [Z], which is great" where [X] is the current Windows OS, [Y] is the predecessor Windows OS and [Z] is the upcomming OS. For eight years, it was fashionable to say "XP is horrible, fall back to 2000 and wait for Longhorn (=Vista), it's great" while beta copies of Vista know as Longhorn were worshipped. Nowadays, "Vista is horrible, fall back to XP and wait for 7, which is great" is in. Live long enough and you will hear: "7 is horrible, fall back to Vista and ..."

Actually, we are not very much off topic: Playing AVI video clips is always a problem and FF7 video clips are also AVI.

To avoid these problems, you have two sure-fire ways:
1. Install FF7 on a clean environment. Convert the new Grimmy's videos to the same format as those of FF7 (True Motion 2 codec). This one the easier way but has too many drawback and consequences to suffer, not in regard to FF7, but to your other uses of a computer
2. Become a codec genius and command your computer to handle video decoing the way you want. This one is the more difficult way but is sooooooooooo very effective.

About the OS video you mentioned as a sidenote, my mother has taught me not believe everything that I see on TV.
