Importing .avi video into movie maker

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.video (More info?)

When I try to import .avi files into the movie maker... I get an error that
says

"RvB_Episode01_LoRes.avi cannot be imported because the codec required to
play the file is not installed on your computer. If you have already tried to
download and install the codec, close and restart Windows Movie Maker, and
then try to import the file again."

RvB....avi being the file i want to import.

I have selected automatically install codecs, and have restarted... but
nothing changes... Am i missing something?

    Use the G-Spot codec identifier to correctly identifier what codec the AVI
    is encoded with. Then download and install the correct codecs to your PC,.
