Default Sims 2 Problem in Video Codec when recording a video :(
I'm having a problem with the Sims 2 whenever I want to record a video.

Here's what the error said:

"No valid codec was found to compress video. Please see the Readme.txt for instructions on how to install or specify a different video codec. Video quality will be set to uncompressed."

I've been playing sims 2 since 2007 and been recording videos since 2011 but I never experienced such problem like this. Since then, my video settings in Sims 2 is consistently set to "MEDIUM mode" in both size and quality. It only happened today that the video quality will be set to uncompressed which sucks up memory. I've been searching all around the internet but nothing seems to help me solve the issue. The topic is so rare. I've also installed Windows 7 Video Codec and even updated my DivX10. There's no available system restore in my laptop at this moment...

Another thing, it only happened right after I installed 'The Sims 2 Holiday Party Pack' and 'Moborobo' both in the same day. I don't know what exactly causes the problem.

Some says that it has something to do with the VideoCapture.ini
This is what mine has.

[Codecs]
0=VP61 # On2 VP6.1
1=VP62 # On2 VP6.2
2=VP60 # On2 VP6.0


Please help
