Try to convert the. AVI files to the. WMV format before
import.

There are many converters available on the net... some
free... some detail.

The following freeware converter is just one example:

(FWIW... it's always a good idea to create a system)
Restore point before installing software or updates)

Format Factory (freeware)
http://www.videohelp.com/tools/Format_Factory
(the 'direct link' is faster download)
(the file you want to download is: > FFSetup290.zip<>
(FWIW... installation..., you can uncheck
('all' boxes on the final screens)
(Windows XP / Vista / 7)

First, you will need to decompress the file or just open the
Drag > FFSetup290.exe< out="" of="" the="">
and drop it on your desktop. To install left click.

Next, after the download and installation of Format
Factory... you can open the program and
left click on the toolbar, the "Option" button and
"Select an output folder to" / apply / OK.
(this is where you find your files after they)
are converted)

Drag and drop your video clips on the main screen...

Select "all to WMV" / OK...

Click on... Beginning... in the toolbar...

That should do it...

  • Why can I play a WMV video that I created, but not import it into Windows Movie Maker?

    Why do I get the error message "the file * *.wmv 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 re-import the file. "even if I CAN play the video in Windows Media Player?

    I have a Windows Media Video file I recorded using another program. I can open the video and watch it in Windows Media Player, but when I try to import into Windows Movie Maker (as I did with the other videos I recorded), I get a message saying that it cannot be imported "because the necessary codec to play the file is not installed on your computer.

    Hello

    ·         What program did you use for recording to WMV file?

    ·         Are you having similar problem when you try to import the WMV file, which is not recorded by this program?

    Method 1:

    Although you can play a file in Microsoft Windows Media Player, you may not be able to import the file into Windows Movie Maker even though this article lists this kind of file. You will not be able to import the file if the codec that was used to encode the audio or video is not a codec that is supplied with Windows. In this case, you can re - encode the video or audio by using Windows Media Encoder, and then import the video or audio.

    To download the Windows Media Encoder, see the Microsoft Web site at the following address:

  • How do you get the necessary codecs to AVI on Windows Movie Maker files to run?

    I tried to open an AVI video file on Windows Movie Maker for the first time, and he said was: "the file 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 re-import the file. »

    -What this means and how I can get the codec?

    Help, please!

    You must use an application like MediaInfo to identify the missing codec and then download the one you need. MediaInfo can analyze the video file and provide a link to download the appropriate codec. Here are some additional details on How to solve the problems of codec with MediaInfo.

  • Problem importing mpeg in windows movie maker 6

    Hello
    I know that this seems to be a repetitive theme but this is: my windows Movie Maker 6 in my laptop computer won't import mpeg (I use vista)... my WMM on my machine from office at will (I use XP)

    Here's the story; I have a canon vixia HF11 which gives me "m2ts" files that used import into WMM... so I found a cheat... I just change the file ext 'MPEG' and that it is important to the former WMM (XP). These "MPEG" do change well in the WMM so I convert them to wmv for editing as I want.

    When I do the same thing on the laptop (vista) the 'new' mpeg file will not import to the WMM as it does on the XP machine. (However, it will play in windows media player)

    the bottom line: is there a way to make the most recent WMM do the same thing as the old?

    If not, is there a simple free converter that will convert my files "m2ts" to something that will work in the most recent WMM?... I already spent a lot of money on this machine and I just want something simple.

    any help would be greatly appreciated

    Thank you

    Thanks for the help that is going

    Now, I know the problem is the movie maker (version 6) itself. After doing a little more looking around, I discovered that if I install wmm 2.6 (which was made for vista machines that could not handle wmm 6. I did it and everything works fine now. apparently the wmm 6 (vista) does not have certain things the same as the older 2.1 (XP).)

    I'm in place and Rollin' now! Thanks again!

    Boa noite Mr. Manasa!

    I'm really sorry that I have not gave an answer before.
    I have to admit that I already found my answer on the internet.
    The problem was the bitrate of my audio file that is not constant.
    I changed this file at a constant bit rate audio mp3 and it works beautifully.

    1. it's specific to this file Yes
    2. the audio file has been repeat auto
    3. it's an mp3, but the encoding was not constant

    That's it, I guess, thank you for responding!
    Hope this might help someone.
