Windows Movie Maker mpeg-2 Not Recognized

Post by aimar on Sun May 03, 2015 3:46 am

K-Lite Codec Pack Full version 11.1.0 installed on my windows 8.1 pro and it does not solve my Movie Maker issues on not being able to
recognize mpeg-2 files. I use Windows Movie maker alot to edit videos but when i try editing a MPEG-2 file it does recognize that type file. File will play in FLC media player but that is not the issue. Want to edit it in Windows Movie maker.

Microsoft has disabled MPEG2 playback in their own applications on Windows 8.1. To activate it you need to install the Media Center Addon (which is not free). http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/feature-packs

An alternative solution would be to convert the file to MP4 with Handbrake and then import the MP4 file into Movie Maker.

If you are trying to import a .vob file, then first try renaming it to for example .mpg or .avi. Then it might work.
