My movie maker cannot import video from my USB. everytime i try to import my PC warning always says that it is not supported i must installed the codec. what is it mean??


A codec is a device or computer program capable of encoding and/or decoding a digital data stream or signal. Your computer does not support the data that you are trying to transfer because the computer lacks a codec. What you need to do is to download it online.

Here is a link to page where you can download codec.

I hope this helps.

Thank you for using fixya.

Hi. There is a simple solution to this problem, an all in one codec download.

I recommend getting k-lite codec pack, as it has codecs for every type of video and audio format available.

here is a link to the download

This should take care of your problem

Just download it, run it, then, when it's done, it will ask if you want to assign the formats for any okayers, I just click past it, because it will not stop it from running.

Then restart your computer, and your videos should now play.
