    Use VirtualDub and forget about WMM. It can be tricky at first, but it is quite good.

    Windows Movie Maker CAN import AVI video files. Like the other commenters have said, MP4 and MKV will have to be converted using video converters, such as Format Factory or Hamster.

    probably the easiest thing to do would be to convert them. I use If you have a lot of files to convert I would suggest a batch converter like Prism from NCH software. These are my personal favourites but a google search will find exactly what you need

    With installation of free download MKV Codec Pack, you can also play MKV files with Windows Media Player, Windows Media Center, and trace to Windows Media Extenders (like the Xbox 360) and to UPnP devices (like the PlayStation 3). Fortunately, you won’t lose any quality when watching MKV files on your PC or through a Windows Media Center extender.

    Besides, some component MKV Codec Pack support MKV file containing HD H.264 video with surround sound AAC audio and can also include advanced cinematic extras such as multiple audio tracks (e.g. director’s commentary), multilingual subtitles, chapter points, bonus content and more.
