    No preview in windows movie maker. Any suggestions?


    I need to edit some bass fishing videos but when I dragged the videos into windows movie maker and let them play, the bar moved but nothing was shown in the preview box.
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    It's probably because you don't have the right codec installed on your system. If you know what codec was used to record the video, you can probably find it. I take it that if you try to export it, you only get sound?

    No sound, nothing. I copied and pasted the videos from a GOPRO camera.
