    I need help getting some .mp4 files from windows my new digital camcorder into a versatile file like .mpg or .avi or anything else that I could use with Winodws Movie Maker.

    Any help will be great, Thanks!

    Just one more thing. Set the audio format to PCM (uncompressed) within MP4Cam2Avi. It provides better compatibility if you are having playback problems.

    Depending on what you are doing and how you have set up MP4Cam2AVI you may need extra codecs. The free K-Lite codec pack is a good choice, do a search on Google and install it. K-lite will show you the codecs it thinks you need, you can select and deselect as you wish but Choose K-Lite's selection to start with. Be sure to deselect Windows Media Player 6 in K-Lite if you wish to keep your present version. Hope this helps
