why doesn't Windows Movie Maker like .mpg files?

I have a video camera that the video from it gets imported as .mpg files, and
Windows Movie Maker doesn't seem to like them. On my computer I get the
audio but no video, and on other computers I get a message about a missing
codec. The files work in the video editing software that came with the
camera, but Windows Movie Maker works a whole lot better for what I want to
do. Is there anything I can do to get the files to work in Windows Movie
Maker?

few users have success with them.... most have to convert MPEG-2 files to
others that work well....

Movie Maker doesn't come with an MPEG-2 decoder and relies on whatever else
is on your system... my website's Import Movie Source Files > Video > MPEG
page has suggestions for conversion

Just out of curiosity, how much does the MPEG-2 codec cost? (I'm probably
going to convert the files but I was curious about the codec too)
