Hi,

I’m pracitcally Movie Maker Illiterate, and i need help installing a codec that can allow me to imprt music

When I try to import the music that i want it comes up with this-
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 import the file again.

Can i import this music (it’s off itunes) and if so how? reply

It may be done if you can find some DirectShow filters. I suggest reading this for a list of some: http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?s&threadid=62723 (part 14). Pay attention to what it says: you need BOTH a splitter (aka parser aka filter for the file type aka container) and a codec (for the audio/video stream).
The two more popular splitters atm are gabest’s and haali’s.

Note: 3ivx, and the Dicas decoder will decode MP4 files that are encoded in MPEG-4 part 2 (fourcc mp4v), but not the ones in H.264 (MPEG-4 part 10 (fourcc avc1)). So you may want to try other ones first. reply

If you decide to convert it instead, look up (on Google) the SUPER video converter. It’s freeware and supports practically any audio and video type. reply

To fix it(well an alternitive) download audacity, go to volumecontrols (start/all programs/accesories/entertainment), options, properties, click on recording, and check sterio mix, or wave out mix, check sm or wom, (sterio mix/waveoutmix), play a song on youtube, and on audacity for recording options make it sm or wom, press record, play the song, and it comes out perfectly recorded! no matter the volume your speakers are playing! then export as mp3 (you have to download someting else for that too) and then you can import it into movie maker reply

thanks jarhead, it worked.
I was trying to import mp4 Itune downloads into windows movie maker as background music for my slide shows, but kept getting message saying I needed right codec. I used audio version of prism, converted mp4 to mp3 and was able to input those easily into WMM, A lot less hassle than trying to fing right codec package.
First I downloaded prism video converter, which didn’t work for mp4 audio, but it told me which audio converter I needed for mp4s and I downloaded that. reply

Simple trick - rename your file from filename.mp4 to filename.mpg and just drag and drop into the movie maker collection - you will have it import without any trouble. reply
