    Well here is the story,
    I have a video which i would like to edit add music to etc....and i want to do this using windows movie maker. BUT it will not let me import a video.
    when i click, import>>>>browse>>.then i select video>>>>>and here is where my problem starts, it comes up with a messege saying :

    The file E:\DATA\My Documents\Desktop\Peters Temporary folder\Video is not a supported file type, and it cannot be imported into Windows Movie Maker.......................

    And so i cant put it into movie maker to make it,
    another thing to note it will not play in media player, it says it has an extension file and may not play,
    it will only play in quicktime


    thanks for your Advance

    an Update

    I downloaded a movie converter and was able to import the video to windows movie maker....
    But now when ever i play it in movie maker it just plays a black screen for the duration of the video:neutral::neutral:

    Hi Peter - Neil or Luke are the ones who need to notice this post and its very far down on the page now. I would suggest that you send Neil an email and tell him you have this post here.

    Keeper of the hens

    Hiya Peter,

    Sorry I didn't see this until now...

    Is the file huge? Is there anywhere you could upload it to so I could have a go converting it? I have Pinnacle Studio (came with the video converter I use for getting hencam's feed into the PC) and that has good video handling capabilities... I could convert the video (if it worked) then send it back to you.

    The only thing I can think of otherwise is to use different (better?) conversion software, or some beefier video editing software...

    Good luck and let us know how you get on!

    It has been converted fine....I hope, i have been told it is something to do with codec, so i have to download some certain ones or something like that......
