Windows Movie Maker: Missing Codec?

vbimport

#1

So when I try and import a video into windows movie maker 2.1 ( i think ) it loads for about 2 seconds and a message comes up saying

“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 they try to import the file again.”

I have no idea what a codec is and REALLy need help.

The file im trying to import has an .avi extension

THANKS!!! :bow:

You have created that “video” how? So you should know the codec(s) used.
Run GSpot.
