Importing video into Muvizu? Muvizu accepts GIF and AVI video for any textures which allow images. (Yes they're very old formats but Muvizu is built on old software)

MPEG-4 AVI works best, keep the file size low as you can, 25 fps or less works well.

Use a video converter program. I use Xilisoft's, which is good, but there are lots of free ones out there. Animated GIFs aren't actually video files really, so no surprise they won't load.

All video files are created with a specific codec, and MPEG-4 is just one option you could use. If Xvid can export it, then that should work okay. It pays to experiment :)

Just adding to Ziggy's advice:
-----------------------------------
For me, imported video looks "normal" if
I choose DirectX 9 in Muvizu preferences.
Selecting DirectX 11 causes the video to
appear washed out. Lacks contrast.

The latest Xvid codec is here:
https://www.xvid.com/download/
Download and install.

To convert MP4 to AVI, I use XMedia Recode
[which is free] and I can specifically pick
the XVid codec under video tab.
