Ef i try to inport a video i get this error i will copy it for you becouse i dont knew the name of the error:

The file C:\Documents and Settings\uporabnik\My Documents\BitTorrent Downloads\[A&F]Final Fantasy VII - Last Order\[A&F]Final Fantasy VII - Last Order.avi cannot be imported because the codec required to play the file is not installed on your computer. If you have already tried to download and install the codec, close and restart Windows Movie Maker, and then try to import the file again.


What shall i do please help

Download GSpot, unzip, and run. Use it to open the vid you want. It should tell you what was used to encode the file

Well, it's a general truth that XVID hardly ever (if ever?) works out for editing. However, do not despair! (god that was cheesy). All you have to do is re-encode it! Just use VirtualDub to do this. I think this can explain things a lot better than I can (I would also suggest getting AMVApp as it bundles all the needed software into one convenient package)

besides most distrobuted video footage is going to be in codecs that are buggy and hard to edit with because they make the files smaller...

Near as I know, regardless you shouldn't try to edit with XVID as it just doesn't really work out. Could you go through exactly what you tried to do after I mentioned re-encoding? Did you read the guide I posted above?

can you view the file in windows media player? (if the answer is yes, then you have the codec)

1. download the AMVAPP and install
2. open virtualdub mod,
3. import clip,
4. choose "video" then choose "compression" then select "huffyuv" (cause aparently lagarith doesnt work in wmm O.o)
5. after selecting all the "okay" buttons go to "file" then "save"

(if you wish to remove audio go to "streams" then "streams list" and click "disable stream"...)
