How to import & add MP4 files to Windows Movie Maker?

How can I import MP4 files to Windows Movie Maker? I have many video clips in MP4 format I would like to create a movie using these clips through Windows Movie Maker. I knew we cannot import those MP4 videos directly to Windows Live Movie Maker but still is there any possibility to do it? And if I convert MP4 to AVI or WMV, does it work? Please can some tell me the step by step process? Thanks in advance.



Before we go, let's have a quick look at the supported video file formats by Windows Movie Maker (Also Windows Live Movie Maker): .asf, .avi, .wmv, MPEG1, .mpeg, .mpg, .m1v and .mp2. Obviously, the file type of MP4/MPEG-4 is not included in the list. That's why we cannot add MP4 videos into Windows Movie Maker directly.
