Video Codec issue with Sony HDD cam - mpgv

Last Modified: 2013-12-07
I have a Sony DCR-SR100 HDD Camcorder.  It records to .mpg.  VLC says that it uses an mpgv codec.

ONLY VLC can view these files.  I want to be able to edit these movies with Windows Moviemaker.  I don't want to convert files everytime that I pull them off of the camera.

Has anyone found a codec for this for Media Player? I've googled the hell out of this.
