I had the same problem, and it just worked for me, hopefully it can help others.
When you download a video file, convert it in to WMV (windows media), this can work, if you have real player on your computer. It gives you an option to download and convert files, convert to WMV. Then you can import it into Windows movie maker. It should work, it worked for me :)
WOW... LOTS OF QUESTIONS BUT NO ANSWERS...
WELL I CAN SOLVE ONE.
For the codec thing u don’t need it. As long as you are using an mp3 format. That being said itunes runs with m4a (they just have to be fancy and irritating don’t they). However u can’t just type in any format u want b/c the file itself won’t change! you have to officially convert it! so here’s an audio converter! this should help some of u. http://www.nch.com.au/switch/index.html
a simple and easy audio file converter. and if u continue to look on the site they have a video converter as well! I HOPE I HELPED
BTW, some wonderful softw2are that will enocde and re-enocde ANY type of audio or video production is AVS4YOU. They charge around $ 39 a year and you have access to all of their software. I began using it 70 years ago (not really) and have used it religiously eva since. Go Bears!
It is fun reading the tips on how to start your fresh Windows bellaifuuty. It had been quite sometime since I last installed a fresh OS and this article certainly reminds me some of the memorable moments. However, I got my video codecs installed ASAP after I install my Windows simply because I can’t live without watching movies Alan Tay’s recent post ..

I was in the same boat (sorry if this problem has been solved, but I didn’t want to read through 4 pages of posts). Here’s how I solved the problem:
This is what I found to be the EASIEST solution.
MovieMaker DOES play well with .WAV files, in my own personal, non-expert experience. Not so with .mp3 files. Try changing the file format to .WAV.
You can do this in Audacity, which is a FREE audio editing program. You may use another application to convert the file in; Audacity was just what I happened to have (and a really EXCELLENT audio editing software it is, too).
In Audacity, you simply FILE > OPEN the .mp3 file you want to use, then FILE > EXPORT the file and select WAV 16 Bit(Microsoft). Name the new audio file whatever you want, and save it where you will find it.
Then you can go back into MovieMaker and import the WAV file.
This has worked for me.
