Ok Pit I have a challenge for all you video conversion wizards out there!

I have just recorded a 4 minute video with my webcam and the result is a 1.5GB file that does not seem to have a file extension (.avi .wmv .mp4 etc). It opens in WMP though and I can watch it there.
Now, my problem is that I need to convert it into .avi or something similar to import it into Windows Movie Maker and add an audio file to it. However no matter what I try the newly converted file becomes 15-20 secs shorter than the original and thus I cannot sync it with the audio properly.

So does anyone with knowledge of video conversion know any solutions to my problem?

Record it again with a program that doesn't make it a 1.5gig file with no file extention.

I trust you've already tried using another program to convert it?

Well, it does have a file extension; Windows just hides the extensions of files it knows. You can change that setting to show all file extensions, or you can right-click it, hit properties, go to the details tab, and under the file section it will tell you what type of file it is.

I'm sure knowing the file extension will aid in the conversion process

Also, I find it strange that you can watch the video in WMP yet Windows Movie Maker won't open it. You have tried to import it into WMM, right?

Well in properties it says the file extension is 'File'.
and yeah, tried importing into WMM it won't open it

Try renaming the file and put a .avi, .mp4 etc. You could also try to use some other program than WMM, as the programs that come with Windows are pretty bad.

First delete it. Then delete it from your recycle bin. Shut down computer. Toss it out window.

Why is a 4 minute video 1.5 GB?

Is it fullscreen?

Thank you. I thought I was the only one being bothered by that. I have full length movies on my HD that aren't even 1GB, what the hell did you do?
My signature lacks content. It is, however, blue.

Come to think of it, it's probably an uncompressed avi, because I have some HUGE avi files on my computer that aren't even a minute long.
