Windows Movie Maker -Codec issue

December 2016



Issue


Upon importing a video under Windows Movie Maker, I'm getting the following error message:

"Can not import C:\ Documents and Settings \ Username \ My Documents \ My Videos \ P1000711.MOV.wma. The required codec could not be downloaded automatically because the check box Download codecs automatically is not selected in the Options dialog box. "

Solution


Download the following codec pack http://www.clubic.com/lancer-le-telechargement-45037-0-k-lite-codec-pack.html.
  • Launch Movie Maker , go to options and check the K-lite codec pack.
