Movies made in 1.09 simply will not work in 1.24. I think the movie and savestate formats were overhauled for 1.20, and the author decided not to support pre-1.20 movies and savestates. Sorry.

In 1.24, there is a bug with MMC3 games, I believe, which disallows movie and savestate creation with them. I posted this on the bug tracker already, and has been fixed.
