I have installed the G2M (GoToMeeting) codec onto my computer, but Expression 4 keeps telling me "Error: Missing G2M4 file codec" when I try to import these video files. I know that I successfully installed the codec, because previously Windows Media player couldn't open the videos, but now they can. How do I go about fixing this problem?

Likely that the G2M4 codec isn't DShow-based, but MediaFoundation-based. WMP12 supports MF codecs, but not Expression Encoder 4. Note that G2M3 seems to be supported in EE4, mainly because it's got a DShow codec wrapper.
If you don't see a G2M4 codec listed in the Compatiblity list in the Options dialog, EE4Pro won't be able to support it. You could contact GoToMeeting to request if/when they would provide a DShow-based codec for their G2M4 format to enable your scenario.

FWIW, from what I saw, all the videos I've found were discussing about files containing G2M3 streams, not G2M4.
