    I know this may have been asked before, but I cannot find a solution that works for me.

    I can import MPEG2's into Movie Maker, but on the stroyboard they appear as audio, and only their sound is played. From searching the internet, I think that this might be a problem with my codecs, which means I don't have an MPEG2 video codec, but I have tried downloading lots of different MPEG2 video codecs and they do not seem to work...

    Can anyone help?

    Try downloading and installing CCCP (Combined Community Codec Pack).

    ...And enable which codecs? I enabled them all in movie maker, and it still wouldn't play mpeg2's.
