Movie import problem

Ive got an AVI of an helicopter taking off.
Ive got an MPG of an helicopter taking off.
Both the same problem when i try to import this into blender:
This file is not an movie or FFMPEG-suport not compiled in.
What can i do? what filetype do i need?

So does the build you are using have ffmpeg compiled in? You’re on Fedora, did you build yourself?
