Re: Windows 10 Codec for ORf

Without searching I can't recall the time scales. Is it possible the Olympus Om-D MK2 versions were introduced after the release of Win 10 ? The reports I read stated support had been withdrawn for any new Orf files produced after the introduction of Win 10.

Certainly sounds plausible. I will have a gander to fin out if users of other brands are in the same boat.

Hi John
I spoke with Olympus, they have provided Microsoft with the codec.

I spoke with Microsoft and they have escalated it to their developers. They said there had been compatibility issues, see the excerpt from my conversation with them in post #46.

Cheers

Hi Ivor, I did realise you had spoken to Microsoft but from past experience with them and other similar organisations, and reports on the net suggesting they have withdrawn support, forgive me for being sceptical.

Obviously only time will tell and as stated I don't have the same problem. I hope you are successful in your attempts and receive a positive outcome in the very near future

Best regards,

John
