Put Mod Files In Windows Movie Maker

MOD files are commonly associated with digital camcorders manufactured by JVC, Panasonic and Canon.

Depending on the make and model of your digital camcorder, your home videos may be saved as MOD files. You may have noticed, however, that the video format is not compatible with Windows Movie Maker. If you want to use your MOD videos in the popular movie making program, install Windows Live Movie Maker. The software is compatible with Windows 7 and Vista, and it supports MOD files.


1. Open your Web browser and visit Microsoft’s official Windows Live Movie Maker page.

2. Click the “Download now” button, and then click “Save File.”

3. Double-click the “wlsetup.exe” setup file, and then click “Run.” The “Windows Live Essentials 2011” window will appear.

4. Click the “Choose the programs you want to install” option and select “Photo Gallery and Movie Maker.” Click the “Install” button. When the installation process completes, click the “Restart Now” button to reboot your computer.

5. Go to “Start,” click “All Programs” and open Windows Live Movie Maker.

6. Click the “Add videos and photos” button in the “Home” toolbar. Navigate through your folders and select each MOD file you want to import to the program. Click the “Open” button. The MOD files will be inserted in the Movie Maker storyboard on the right side of the screen.
