Unable to import .AVI movies to Windows Movie Maker

December 2016




Issue


Upon adding a .AVI video to Windows Movie Maker, it prompts me with the following error message:

Could not import C:\Documents and Settings\username\path_to_file

The required codec was not downloaded automatically because the Download codecs automatically check box is not selected in the Options dialog box.
