Windows Movie Maker -Codec issue

Ask a question


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. "


Download the following codec pack
  • Launch Movie Maker , go to options and check the K-lite codec pack.
