I've had the same problem. Have you installed If not, that's a 
good idea. The path to the codecs is also important. You may have to 
create a symbolic link. I don't have avisynth.dll on my system, but 
works fine. Thus, I assume that it's complaining about that because it 
can't find other codecs.

Good luck!
