Vista Ultimate Movie Maker plays only sound from an .avi import

    This has just started. I have several .avi clips that I have downloaded from
    my camera. The audio plays without the video. I just get a black screen. It
    seems to only happen with these recent clips. I can put .avi clips into Movie
    Maker that I have previously recorded and they play okay.

    I have opened properties for both; one that plays both video and auido and
    the one that only plays auido. Everything looks the same.

    Really has me stumped!

    What codecs do these AVI files use? Most digital cameras would use MJPEG
    AVI - did you install any third party multimedia tool that might have
    overwritten the Windows MJPEG codec... ?
