Help with codec


Every time i try and drag an AVI video file to movie maker i get this -- 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.--

what do i need to do? i tried the compatibility thing but all the check boxes are checked what codec must i find or download please help. reply

can’t help you much without knowing what’s in the file

what does mediainfo say? (click view, text for details)

which box(es) are checked in compatibility mode? do you have ffdshow installed? is the vfw module of ffdshow installed? which decoders are enabled? reply
