View Full Version : Codec error report in movie maker

04-08-2010, 05:43 PM
I'm trying to add some music to my digital stills camera movie clips, but can't even get to the first stage as I receive an error message telling me I don't have the necessary codec installed on my computer when I try to import the clip. I've converted the .mov to .avi as Movie Maker doesn't recognise .mov files and I've also just installed a codec pack, but I still get the following error report.

avi cannot be imported because the codec required to play the file is not installed on your computer.

What codec do I need to install so that Movie Maker will let me import my clip?

Thanks in advance.

Hi OurJud,

Maybe you can try to download the latest version of your Movie Maker and see if it works. You can also check whether your converted .avi clip can be played at all in the very first place.

There are many Codec packs available for download, you might try some of those to see if it works for your application. Hope these help!
