Sum: It’s a pity Windows Movie Maker is not compatible with your MPG files. This article will guide through how to rewrap and transcode .mpg to .wmv(HD) for Windows Movie Maker step by step.
When working some MPG files in Windows Movie Maker, you may encounter the importing/editing issues:
“I'm experiencing some difficulties in opening an MPG file on Movie Maker for Windows 8. The file shows as if it was "inserted" into the timeline, but I can't play it nor edit it. I have no issues in playing the file on Windows Media Player, It's just the Movie Maker that does not read it properly. Any ideas on how to solve this?”
Actually, Windows Movie Maker supports MPG files. But there are several considerations when using this file format in the application. For example, the ability to open MPG files in Movie Maker is partially dependent on the operating system your computer is running. Another consideration if you have difficulty opening this file format is codec in MPG file. Two codecs are closely associated with the MPG video files and these are the MPEG-1 and the MPEG-2 codecs. The other codecs associated with MPG are the MPEG-4 Audio Lossless Coding and the MPEG-4 Scalable Lossless Coding. The MPG file format can be opened in Movie Maker, but only if all necessary codecs are installed. To open and edit MPG in Windows Movie Maker smoothly, a good suggestion is to convert MPG to WMV for Windows Movie Maker.
