I've got an .avi file and windows moviemaker cant import it, says it
doesnt have the right codec.

Is there a website where codecs for moviemaker are available for
download?

thanks

MM works best with dv-avi files, do you know which sort yours is? If it's
from a web download it's probably divx which won't work. You can use gspot
to find out which sort it is.
