Windows Movie Maker - Unable to load .mpg files

October 2016


I'm working with Movie Maker 5.1 and I'm trying to import a .mpg file:
Unable to import F:\name_of_file.mpg. An interface has too many methods to remove events.


  • Open Movie Maker.
  • Go to Tools > Options
  • Uncheck "Cyberlink Video/SP Decoder"
  • Click on OK to validate.
  • As from now you can load .mpg files.
