I've been trying to import some video files. But, problem is I can't seem to import my .avi videos. I've converted many of my videos from it's original file type, that is MP4, to .avi which is compatible with Windows movie maker. I used Format Factory to convert them. The error is as follows:

"Video0048.avi cannot be imported because the codec required to play the file is not installed on your computer. If you have already tried to download and install the codec, close and restart Windows Movie Maker, and then try to import the file again."

I've already installed K-lite codec pack but it still isn't working.

Any suggestions please? It would be much appreciated :D

Oh sorry. Please, I request the topic to be moved to the Audio and Video Forums if possible. ^^' I'm sorry for posting in the wrong forum.

There's also a setting in configuration options...which allegedly allows for auto download of any needed codecs.

I find that I also have problems importing some files into WMM...but I think it's not a codec problem, just the fact that WMM has not seen any new development or updating...in some time. The only way to repair WMM...is to reinstall SP2...and that was long ago.

BandPod,

Not sure if you are still looking for help with this, but G-Spot can help you determine what codec was used. Here's a link to a guide that was written a few years ago, but still applicable.

Good luck.
