Thread: Adding .avi file

    Default Re: Adding .avi file

    Thanks Carl. The easiest solution is to upgrade my camera & software to a
    more modern program that will capture the movies in .wmv format. Perhaps
    '09 will be kind and I can accomplish this down the road. Thanks for the
    reply! Happy Holidays!
