### Reading 16-bit color avi video format in MatLab

You may have problems when reading .avi video using MatLab function *aviread()*. If you have 16-bit color video, *aviread()* can’t read it correctly. You can receive only grayscaled data using this function in this case. The solution is to use Kelly Kearney’s *aviread16bitcol()* function, which you can download from here: http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/9314
