Was wondering if there is a codec that will make it possible to import MP4 videos into Windows Movie Maker? If so, is there a reputable freeware out there for that? I know that I can convert the file to a more compatible one, but I would prefer to skip the extra step if at all possible.

You could try this ffdshow. If you do read the help files and read all the screens during install. It does need some configuring. I have used it in the past. And read the videohelp forums for help on configuring it.

ffdshow is an advanced directshow decoder and VFW codec for playing most video formats like AVI, DivX, XviD, MKV, MP4/M4V, WMV, WEBM, MPG, MPEG2, SVCD, DVD, AVC/H264, AC3, DTS, AAC/M4A. Built in video and audio postprocessing filters like video resize, noise, sharpen, crop, logoaway, subtitles, OSD information and audio equalizer, normalizer, delay, etc.

Or search here Codecs and see if anything else catches your eye.

Or as an alternative, what are you trying to do? Maybe one of the programs that can handle mp4 using built in codecs would be better?
