Hi everybody, Congratulations. I had this problem with movie maker and said to me this error:
The file E:\alefba\AVSEQ01.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.
But I have solved it, you want to know how? ok. read below:
1-open movie maker
2-go to the tools — >optins menu.
3-go to the compatibility at the above of window.
4- at the filter box, check the “ffdshow mpeg-4 video decoder”
5- push “ok” bottom.
6-import your .avi video and enjoy it.
(if you do not have this option to check you can download this codec from “http://www.free-codecs.com/FFDShow_download.htm”)
Thank you for sharing your fixes, but please, next time, do not make multiple topics with the same contents.

You have to download the ffdshow mpeg-4 video decoder from http://www.free-codecs.com/download/FFDShow.htm if it doesn’t work.

When I imported this game called “Toontown” video, it turned all weird. The colors were bad and it wasn’t anything like it. I want to continue to make videos but with the way its colored I cant make any. By the way, I listened to what you said about the Tools > Options > ffdshow Video Recorder thing.
