    Sounds like you should figure out what codec your content uses. Then check
    with the codec provider for a 64bit version.

    I know will arise this question...... Where can I find what codec is i
    used for my WMM? I know that sounds kinda like I want you to explain th
    whole process to me, but do be advised I have had some trouble wit
    other various answers from forums that have chronically time and agai
    proven useless to me with my research

    Where did you get the clip from? The content provider would hopefully know
    what codec their content uses.

    The clip is actually some mediocre footage I took myself using
    personal Digital Camera made by Samsung. It's quite odd because when
    set the default player as Quick time I still have the same problem.
    would just like to take this one step at a I am new to thi
    x64 OS. I believe if I can figure out the Codec issue w/ WMM let alone
    can then venture off into finding a solution as well for Quick tim
    without haveing a Codec overload on my system. Personally I wouldn'
    care for just some AVI converter to make life easier with an additiona

    I'll do some follow up for Samsung too

    A model number would be handy...I'm sure their specification on thei
    website would throw some light

    I suspect it would Mpeg 4 varient if it;s froma camera rather than

    Thsi format is notoriously difficult to edit. Converting it to AV
    isn;t going to help you much unless it's originally in High Definition


    Windows Vista Home Premium x64 + SP1
    Intel Core2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.4GHz
    4GB RAM (DDR2)

    So what codec does it use?

    If you're going to use or get files using strange codecs, it's critical to
    know what those are.

    This is why AVI isn't a very user-friendly format anymore.
