Download Codec

download codec
What codec would I download to import video into Windows Movie Maker?

When I try to import video to edit it gives me this message.
C:Documents and SettingsLoriMy DocumentsMy Pictures2008-11-22CLIP0001.AVI 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 codec would I download or what would I do, so I COULD import video?


Hi, my name’s Cody, and I’m working with the Windows Media Outreach Team to answer questions and assist with issues that users might have regarding their copies of Windows Movie Maker.

The easiest thing to do will be to use a codec tool to figure out exactly what codecs you may need to play the file.

Here are a couple of free tools that will do this for you: Gspot (http://www.headbands.com/gspot/) and Sherlock (http://www.updatexp.com/sherlock-codec-detective.html) Both of these work great, and using these on your file will tell you what codecs you need to get a file running properly, without making you download anything that you don’t need.

I hope this was helpful!
