windows movie maker codecs



I am trying to find where to download codes for the WMM. I have AVI files
that I have captured with my DV camera that creates AVI files but None of my
DVD creation programs including WMM likes the format. I CAN play them on
Windows Media Player, but WMM complains that I don't hav proper codes.

Probably DIVX or XVID ( and

The best way to edit movies that a digital camera (as opposed to a digital
camcorder) is to use a card reader.... copy the files to the hard drive and
then import them from the hard drive to Windows Movie Maker.


Thanks. Good advice, but I did figure out what was going on. It turns out
that nero burning rom had installed a codec that allowed the videos to be
viewed but none of the DVD disc creators I have could use it.

I uninstalled nero and found a third party MPEG 4 codec and now everything
is happy again.


Are you at liberty to say what third party MPEG 4 codec you found? Also,
what do you use for MPEG 2 files? Thanks! -- Arthur
