GoPro HD MP4 movies with Window Movie Maker[/b] software. There're some frequently asked questions quoted as below.

[b]Q1: unsupported file type[/b]
I'm trying to edit a video from my GoPro Hero camera on Windows Movie Maker and it won't work. Whenever I go to import my video to the program it says: "The file E:\017.MP4 is not a supported file type, and it cannot be imported into Windows Movie Maker." Is there anyway I can update it or change it so that it will support my video type?

[b]Q2: lag, freeze and crash[/b]
Whatís going on is that I bought a GoPro and I have nothing to edit the clips with. I have windows movie maker but it struggles with the files for some reason. Sometimes just playing the video it lags and if the files to big it will freeze and close the program. So Iím wondering if thereís something I can change to the file or the program to make it compatible.

As you know Gopro records MP4 videos, but it seems Windows Movie Maker (including the recent Movie Maker 2012) does not like the way. The file type is a compressed output format, but not ideal for editing in NLE system. To solve those problems, the quick workaround is to transcode MP4 files to Movie Maker natively supported formats (WMV/AVI are highly recommended). Along with some help from third-party software, it can be done effortlessly. Here I share a simple guide on how to convert GoPro HD MP4 files for Windows Movie Maker editing smoothly. If youíre facing the issues, read on to find the answer.
