How to edit a Flip Video AVI file
by Roger Chartier:
So I bought my Flip video camera and made a quickie video to use as a test.
I inserted the Video Camera into the USB of my computer and then the software opened, and I loaded it on the computer.
Cool! ... or so I thought.
When I imported the file into Windows Movie Maker, only the audio would open.
Roger's "Easy fix" to editing Flip Videos with Windows Movie Maker:
Edit the Flip video AVI file in the Flip Video provided software only as much as clipping the unwanted intro or ending if need be and then use that software to make or save it as a "Movie". It seems that the Codecs for the original AVI files aren't the same as needed by Windows Movie Maker.
Save it to a folder and then open Windows Movie Maker and then open the saved "movie" version for further editing. That's the trick...
