It’s simple. Go on tools, options, compatibility then click on the end tab and check all the boxes. Please, for your sake, don’t continue downloading endless codecs. Your probably downloading the right codec numerous times, but at long as that box is unchecked, movie maker isn’t looking for it. It’s a simple fix to an annoying problem. reply

Hi, i have the same problem when i try to import AVI format videos . said:
The file C:\.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 somebody can tell me solution about that.
Thanks reply

system restore is a stupid way to fix a problem, and its fantastic that everyone has the same problem, what we really need is an answer. reply

I have an error message that reads this:

“C:\Documents and Settings\Katie\Desktop\Wolf’s Rain - 01.avi could not be imported. The required codec was not downloaded automatically because the Download codecs automatically check box is not selected in the Options dialog box."

Help would be greatly appreciated!!! reply

this guy “awesome” is absolutely right, all you have to do is download the codec v.1.1.0, install it and it works fine!!

no need to download packs and ton of codecs. just that one will be enough.
Hi There,you need XviD codec v1.1.0 here’s a link for windows and mac versions

happy AVI burning reply

I recorded a short length of lightning film using my olypus C-50 digicam. Watched it a few times through RealPlayer and saved it as a condensed file via a right click option and now the file which I saved as lightning which transformed into a row of numbers can’t be found. reply

Your explanation does not work because this error has occured before, and has always happened for every time I’ve used this program this and my computer is less than a week old. System restore does nothing to sooth the problem at all, and it would not matter how early I went because it has always been like this.

Does anyone else have any other solutions? reply

I’m having issues when I try to crop a movie. I get about 40 seconds into my video and then once I try to crop something, it says “Movie maker has encountered a problem and needs to close” and it does this ALLLLLLL the time. It’s really annoying, anything I can do? reply

my bad it didn’t work, it just converted the video fottage into an audio file only, so i could import the file but it was only sound, no visual reply

any of you have tried to install a codec pack like the k-lite?
It should solve your problems

Installing the Divx codec Pack as well should help

I tried doing a system recovery and it didn’t work, so I went on Microsoft website and did a update for the program. Just follow the prompts on the webpage for your particular situation. reply

OK I had the problem with only some of my .avi files. now for the files, i went and got this program: “Riva FLV Encoder." it will take any video file and turn it into about any other video file. try it, i turned them into an mpg and they work fine now. try it works. Zook T. Dribit. reply
