How to use x 264/ h 264 files in Windows MM on Win 7?

I''m trying to edit some videos to put on youtube but I can't open the files. Every time I try to add a H 264 video file I get an error message. Are there any codecs that I can download or programs that support H 264 video files.

What's the file extension of said videos you are having problems with?

ffdshow tryouts | Official Website

Give that a whirl. Windows Media Player shouldn't have a problem playing any H.264 encoded video now.

Take a look at this thread. I think the last post on the thread has the answer to your question!

Windows Live Movie Maker to Youtube? - Yahoo! Answers

I hope this helps!

Windows includes a H.264 codec. No reason to install ffdshow in that case.
You can use individual splitters instead of downloading that entire package....It is a cpu hog compared to the native windows 7 codecs.
