What plays Ut Video Codec (ULY4) encoded from OBS?

Was looking into recording some game footage here and there and was told OBS is the best recording software for 2020. Since I want to think ahead of time, I've decided to record all my sessions in lossless format for both audio and video, just in case I need such a master or reference for editing in future.

However, once recording is done, no such player that I've tried (WMP, PP, VLC, MPH-HC, QT) can actually play the file back so I can see what I had recorded. Audio is played back but no video is shown.

Here's a sample 2 second clip: https://mega.nz/file/TKBSwAKB#Cx65gL...H16dEo6_yoDWEA it's a 586KB 7z file compressed, just need to uncompress it to its original 28MB avi file.

I've tried installing the codec for it that would supposedly let me decode and playback the video portion of it but nope, didn't work...

I guess I'll go back to FRAPS for the time being then as that was a solid contender also able to record true lossless in RGB colour space, albeit the program hasn't been updated in a while... Developer dead? But still works nonetheless(with extra performance hit - dunno why OBS doesn't have this issue or as much if there is a performance hit since both losslessly record...), I use it and then transcode to FFV1 with Axiom and those are my masters.
