Loading DivX/XviD AVI files into Windows Movie Maker

Summary: In this article, you will learn the best way to import and edit AVI files in Windows Movie Maker without any issue. Just follow it.

Windows Movie Maker with stunning features is a popular free video editing tool for us. When you get a lot of AVI videos, you may wanna import AVI to Windows Movie Maker to make a home movie. However, the program probably will not recognize your files imported, as Windows Movie Maker can only support DV-AVI, Motion JPEG AVI. It does not support AVI files encoded with other codecs like DivX, XviD. To get rid of the issue, an easy workaround is to convert AVI into a supported video file type before Windows Movie Maker can read them. Below is how to.

Now I share the guide with you how to convert AVI video to Windows Movie Maker friendly format like WMV using Brorsoft Video Converter. With it, you can effortlessly encode/re-encode AVI for smoothly importing and editing in various non-linear editing systems (NLE), including Windows Movie Maker, Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, Pinnacle Studio and more.

Guide: Converting AVI to Windows Movie Maker format

1. Load AVI files to converter

Run the top AVI converter and you can import AVI clips to the program through "Add Video" button or just drag and drop the files to the program. If you like, check the "Merge into one" box to join AVI files together.

2. Set output format

Click the Format bar and select HD Video -->WMV HD(*.wmv) on the dropdown menu as output format for editing in Windows Movie Maker smoothly.

3. Start converting AVI to Movie Maker

Click Convert bar to start the AVI to Windows Movie Maker conversion. Once it finished, click "Open" to locate the result videos.

You’re now ready to get the result files into Windows Movie Maker to do further editing.

    Got some captured AVI videos, when I import these AVIs to Windows Movie Maker, it won't support. It's glad to tell you after converting AVI to WMV with the Brorsoft video converter you recommend, the new file works on Movie Maker flawlessly.
