MP4 codec problem in windows movie maker
One really annoying thing with using digital still cameras for users is that Windows Movie Maker can't open the source footage. Most cameras record in MPEG-4 format (an .MP4 or .MOV file) and Movie Maker can only work with files that Windows Media Player can open.
Using MPEG-4 Videos in Windows 7 Movie Maker
Windows movie maker only imports video in AVI, WMV (the default video type for all PC Windows computers) or MPG(MPEG-1) format. The solution is called MP4 to Windows Movie Maker Converter. Using MP4 to Windows Movie Maker Converter, it's easy to convert the MP4 files into AVI that Windows 7 Movie Maker can open. It can do batch operations and it doesn't re-encode the videos.
MP4 to Windows Movie Maker Converter also lets you convert between general video formats like AVI, WMV, MPG(MPEG-1 and MPEG-2), DV, MOV, MP4, MKV, FLV, SWF, etc.
