Written by Lucy John on April 18, 2023

“Today when I imported one of my AVI files into Sony Vegas 12, I can view it there. When I added it to my timeline and tried to open it. It popped up with an error message stating as 'AVI file could not be opened'. So I imported another video file and it is working fine, but not with my recorded video clip. I am so frustrated, is there any solution to fix this issue? Reply to me as soon as possible!!!”

Why Sony Vegas 12 AVI could not be opened?

AVI is a multimedia file format that stores video files that may be encoded in varieties of codecs. Generally, Sony Vegas 12 has no problem with AVI files as long as there have the underlying codec installed. However, if your computer is not installed with the corresponding video and audio codec, you will fail to play or import AVI files to Sony Vega 12.

Method 1: Missing codecs installation:

Then open Sony Vegas 12 to import AVI files. Make sure you close and reopen Sony Vegas if it is already opened when you install codecs.
