Convert MPG to Windows Movie Maker editable WMV format
I recently bought a new laptop that had Windows 8 installed. Everything was working nice and fine. So I wanted to create a video from images I captured using my USB capture device from my gameplay. The video is in the .mpg format which according the Microsoft should work. What caused me upset, when I import the MPG into Windows Movie Maker, it wouldn't play. The preview window was black but all I could hear was the audio from my video…

So I went to do research online and some guys suggested installing a codec pack since there is no MPG codec in Windows Movie Maker. The problem is it’s messing up my Windows Movie Maker.
