    I tried to import a mpeg clip into movie maker 2 and a error message came up
    that said I don't have a codec for this file type. I searched the web for
    codecs and I downloaded one. After doing that, it let me import the mpeg clip
    into the timeline in movie maker, but instead of putting the clip into the
    video slot, it put it into the audio slot. I made the clip using a capture
    card. Is this a problem with the codec or a problem with the movie and what
    can I do to solve this problem?

    You might want to ask in the MovieMaker newsgroup instead of the MediaCenter
    newsgroup. However, I've heard that MovieMaker doesn't work well with
    anything other than WMV videos and WMA audio files. You might try converting
    to WMV and see if that helps. Also, which codec did you install? I've had
    generally good luck with FFDSHOW.
