Default Mising codec

Trying to watch a video I downloaded off youtube. Got it converted from MP4 to AVI. WIndows media player wont play it just the sound. Says it is missing Intel ITU H.264 (H264) codec

I searched google found one place to download it. Still doesn't work even after downloading it. All I get is sound and not actual video.

So either the conversion of the MP4 to AVI was messed up or the codec download was bad.

Anyone know where to get a codec at from a good source

I always go to www.download.com, and type in codec pack, and its the third one down called "media player codec pack" that may or may not contain the codec you need, but its worth a shot considering its for windows media player. here's a link.

Are you trying to watch it on your computer?

If so just use VLC, it handles mp4 files.

What is VLC?

I also am trying to convert it to AVI so I can edit out one part in windows movie maker.

The video contains a burn out I did and I want just that part.

VLC is this media player... http://download.cnet.com/VLC-Media-Player/3000-13632_4-10267151.html?tag=contentMain;contentAux
It plays just about any type of file. Don't know if it will help you import into Movie Maker though unless it comes with the needed codec.

Downloaded this and it will now play on Windows media player with sound and video.

Only thing is I need a mp4 to avi converter, The one I used wont play it after I convert it.

its tough to find a good free one. If you do, it usually puts a watermark on the footage. Let us know if you find a good one please.
