Hi,

I was having trouble importing .avi files in Windows Movie Maker (Vista).

For those of you that are having problems playing the video at all OR play the video but only the audio shows, then this is what you do!!!!


Step 1 go to this website
http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_lite_codec_pack.htm

Step 2 Click on the link that says
“Download K-lite Codec Pack”

Step 3
Download the standard virsion

after you it finishes downloading it might ask you to delete a current codec in order for this one to work once you delete the current codec that you have it will then finish downloading after it is completely done it will say click finish

Then go to your videos and enjoy!!!!!!! YEEE :) reply

Unbelievable -- no one can spell and not a single person can express themselves clearly. People PLEASE -- learn how to construct simple sentences. You sound like driveling idiots.

You may 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 included with Windows XP. In that case, you may be able to re-encode the video or audio by using Windows Media Encoder, and then import the video or audio.

To download the Windows Media Encoder for free, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/forpros/encoder/default.mspx

fiuuuu!! what a day!

After doing what I wrote in my last reply, I then opened Windows Movie Maker clicked on TOOLS > OPTIONS>COMPATIBILITY> CHECK ALL BOXES INCLUDING FDDSHOW VIDEO DECODER.

Now both my Windows media player & movie maker work. Now more “adquiring codecs” warnings :-)

Hope I helped,

I just did that and Movie Maker worked right away.

Thank you very much!

I installed the K-Lite codec pack and it fixed everything for a while I could play Avi in Windows Media player and everything was smooth then for some reason it kept displaying the bit rate info and all that over whatever videos I was playing so I uninstalled it.

I looked under options in Windows Movie Maker and all the codecs are related to K-Lite codec pack. Regular files still playable, but Avi has no sound and for some files remain unimportable unlike how I did have it. =( Any sugeestions. A good codec pack anyone?
