What container is the file in, and what codecs does the file use? Use gspot (http://www.headbands.com/gspot) or avicodec (http://avicodec.duby.info) to find out. Can the file play? What do you use to play the file?

CODEC: H264

that’s what GSpot says reply

Bongos gets the prize. I had same problem loading .avi files into WMM. Just had to go to Tools, Options, and Compatibility tab and check last box for “ffdshow video decoder” (so all boxes checked). Voila! I was good to go. Thanks Bongos! reply

Checking FDDSHOW really did the trick. My daughter will have to wait no more for her movie to bring back to school!

GO TO PRISM VIDEO CONVERTER. DOWNLOAD PROGRAM, CONVERT YOUR VID THROUGH MY COMPUTER FIRST, NOT MOVIE MAKER. THEN GO TO MOVIE MAKER AND GET FILE THROUGH IMPORTED FILE (BEST TO PUT THEM IN YOUR VIDEO FILE). YOU SHOULD BE OK FOR AVI STUFF. reply

The same problem i already downloaded http://avicodec.duby.info and http://www.headbands.com/gspot But it still says this “blahblahblah.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." PLEASE HELP!! :(

I was having the whole "...the codec required to play this file is not installed..." thing too.

Go to this website http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow-tryout/ and download the ffdshow. Run it on your computer and then try importing your AVI video again. It just worked for me. =) reply
