I took some .AVI's with my ASI174MM, using ASI capture.  I tried to de-rotate the video stream in Winjupos, and I get an error "Error Reading File"  I then tried all the other AVI's I've taken with the ZWO imager and all give the same error.  It must be user error, and idea what I'm doing wrong?

Well, perhaps it's user error, but here's what I think is going on.

 

If using AVI format, there's a flag you need to set in FC if your captures are going to exceed 2GB.  I'm guessing your file is larger than that.

 

It's generally advised to use SER format, which has no such issues.

 

Further, derotation of video files (as opposed to sharpened, aligned stacks) is only really effective under very good seeing conditions where minimal sharpening would even be necessary.
