    Hi, recommend you a grea flip video converter I am using. It cannot only help you to convert flip video to wmm compatible format wmv, avi, mpg, but also to other popular formats as you need.

    Windows Movie Maker is a very useful application to edit videos, and it has many features such as effects, transitions, titles/credits, audio track, timeline, narration and so on. However, if you want to edit flip videos using Windows Movie Maker, you will have to convert camera video to Windows Movie Maker supported video formats such as ASF, AVI and WMV. Then you will need a video to Windows Movie Maker Converter.

    here is a fact that Windows Movie Maker didn’t play nice with Slide HD as well as Flip Ultra and Mino HD. The problem is with the video codec that the Flip uses: MPEG-4 AVI/H.264 encoded MP4 format. Windows 7 or Windows Movie Maker lacks native support for playing MP4 videos. You will have to download and install extra codec for MP4 support (XP and Vista does this automatically).

    Maybe there is a compatiblity issue with your

    source files.

    Many formats are reportedly compatible with

    Movie Maker but the most reliable choices are:

    Photos - bmp

    Video - wmv or dv-avi

    Music - wma, wav

    Doremisoft Flip video to Windows Movie Maker Converter can professionally help you view or edit a video inside of Windows Movie Maker/WMM. more info about the software: http://www.flip-converter.com/flip-converter-windo...

    Windows Movie Maker supports these video formats:

    * Video files: .asf, .avi, .wmv

    * Movie files: MPEG1, .mpeg, .mpg, .m1v, .mp2

    if windows movie maker can't support flip video, you can get another video editor help you,

    I'd like to recommend AVS Video Editor to you, I always use it to edit video and make funny video for uploading to Youtube, it's easy to use and the quality is awesome, you can crop, cut, join, edit video with it easily. It also embeds many special effects, you can even add text to video or add background music, that's pretty cool. It worth a try

    Hi, first, please make sure the video could be compatible with windows movie maker.

    Here are Supportable formats for windows movie maker:

    Video files: .asf, .avi, .wmv

    Movie files: .mpeg1, .mpeg, .mpg, .m1v, .mp2

    Audio files: .wav, .snd, .au, .aif, .aifc, .aiff

    Windows Media files: .asf, .wm, .wma, .wmv

    Still images: .bmp, .jpg, .jpeg, .jpe, .jfif, .gif

    MP3 format audio: .mp3

    Second, as f ar as i know, most flip videos are in .mp4 foramt which could not be recognized by windows movie maker. That is to say, you should try a flip video converter to convert it to .wmv which works well on windows movie maker. Here i wanna recommedn SnowFox Total Video Converter which im using now. it works great for me. and many of my friends are using and in favor of it, not only because of its powerful conversion, but also of its superior video quality.

    This is because Windows Movie Maker does not support many video formats.

    WINDOWS MOVIE MAKER does not support all file types, not hd, mpeg4, mts, mod, mov or h.264 files. If your camera shoots in those formats you will have to convert to use WMM.

    Files associated with Windows Movie Maker

    Audio files: .aif, .aifc, .aiff .asf, .au, .mp2, .mp3, .mpa, .snd, .wav, and .wma

    Picture files: .bmp, .dib, .emf, .gif, .jfif, .jpe, .jpeg, .jpg, .png, .tif, .tiff, and .wmf

    Video files: .asf, .avi, .m1v, .mp2, .mp2v, .mpe, .mpeg, .mpg, .mpv2, .wm, and .wmv

    Vista WMM supports video files asf, avi, dvr-ms, m1v, mp2, mp2v, mpe, mpeg, mpg, mpv2, wm,and wmv

    Little dog just told me about this program and it worked very well. http://www.squared5.com

    This is a free video converter.
