    Has anyone been able to get Movie Maker to recognise xvid avi files? I
    downloaded a codec at http://www.xvid.org/ and installed it. WMP11 and Media
    Center now play the avi files fine. Windows Movie maker only sees them as
    audio files. I'm currently using 32 bit build 5728. The problem was the same
    in 5600.

    ======================================
    If you cannot import the file...it may be worth a try
    to convert the file to a compatible format like .wmv.

    Maybe one of the following free programs would
    be worth a try:

    SUPER © Simplified
    Universal Player Encoder & Renderer

    (the mirror download site is faster)

    Windows Media Encoder

    Info on using Windows Media Encoder
    How do I convert other video file formats to WMV?

    As the man says, it is not going to work. WMM is a poor tool anyhow t
    do anything and the output is miserable. What exactly are you trying t
    do? Maybe there are better tools than WMM
