Windows movie maker won't let me import clips. And Vegas won't let me upload videos to youtube.

Page 1 of 21

I have been making videos for around a year now.
My method was to make videos in Sony vegas, render them as AVI’S and then send them to Windows Movie maker to make them a WMV file.
I then uploaded the file to youtube and this way worked with all my videos.

When I recently finished my newest project, I tried to drag the clip into windows movie maker, and it said that I do not have the right codec installed. This was confusing because It always worked before.

So I went on the internet, and checked the posts people made before. But it didn’t appear that anybody has had the same problem. I tried downloading all the codec packs, but it still didn’t work.

Plus with my Vegas problem, it seems that if i I upload to youtube with an avi format, it takes hours. I even left it overnight and it still was loading.

I’m really pulling my hair out with this one, so help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers reply

I have a problem like this. When I upload audio and videos from my phone and camera they usually go with QuickTime and when I switch it to make it go with Windows Moviemaker it tells me that it doesn’t have the right codec and that I should install it. I’ve tried doing it with other things as well, but it still seems not to work. Which codec downloader should I use to fix this problem? reply
