Hello

1. What is the format of the video file that you use in Movie Maker?

2. do you receive error messages when you try to play the video?

Some audio and video file formats are not supported in Windows Movie Maker and cannot be imported. However, if you have a video or audio file that is not taken care of, you can use a non-Microsoft video editing software to convert the file into a format supported by Windows Movie Maker, and then import the video file or an audio resulting in Windows Movie Maker.

You can use your favorite search engine and download third-party video editing software to convert the file.

Note: The use of third-party software, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the use of third-party software can be solved. Software using third party is at your own risk.

  • Windows Movie Maker - releasing only audio, is it possible to publish the exact length of the audio and does not include the lot of silent at the end?

    Windows Movie Maker - have 6 minutes of audio spliced, I would like to publish in the form of an audio clip with no video.  I heard that this is possible, and it all works, the 'framework' includes 6 more minutes of space without air circulation that gets compiled with the planned 6 minutes of audio matching 12 minutes of audio rather than the 6 minutes.  Is it possible to MovieMaker 'See' the end of my audio instend, to include 12 minutes in length with it default?  Should I include photos or video for the project to publish only 6 minutes, instead of the 12 minutes?   I hope this makes sense...

    I assume you are using Vista Movie Maker 6 and not Live Movie Maker?

    It is a problem that I've not seen before... the recorded length must be equal
    at times combined clips on the timeline. I guess it's possible
    If you've done a lot of editing/trimming clips... something was corrupted.

    I was wondering... If you import the .wma file saved in Movie Maker and drag
    it to the timeline... it shows the clip as being the length of 12 minutes? If it isn't...
    Perhaps you could he split and right click Delete unwanted 6 minutes and
    then re-save.

    Divide... drag the playback at the end of the music and the type indicator... CTRL + L
    .. .to split the file then right-click of the unwanted part and click on delete.

    Tip: Unlike clips video... audio clips can be dragged to the timeline, so don't forget
    they are dragged all the way to the left to prevent air from dead at the beginning or
    between the clips.

    It may be worth trying to go to... Tools / Options / compatibility... tab and the left click
    the "All default settings" button before the Save.

    And... If the clips audio source are not the. WMA format... it could be a useful
    try to convert them to WMA before you import into Movie Maker.

  • Problem with the sync audio to video when you use Windows Movie Maker version 6.0

    I have a HP Slimline Pavillion S.3220.uk PC, using Windows Vista Edition Home Premium. I have problems with the audio video synchronization when using Windows Movie Maker, version 6.0, I 'get' raw AVCHD files to .wmv using voltaic HD.  I've noticed that the audio and video are out of sync, ONLY after the first thumbnail.  No indirect problem with videos, but when people talk to the camera, in case of DISASTER, as he is out of sync. I tried to reduce the resolution of 720 p and 540 p, and no solution to the problem. Any thoughts on the matter please?

    Hi Fabian119,

    Today, there are hundreds of audio and video codecs in use. Some were created by Microsoft, but the vast majority of codecs have been created by other companies, organizations or individuals. By default, the Windows operating system and the player includes a number of the most popular codecs, such as MP3, Windows Media Audio and Windows Media Video.

    There might be times, however, when you want to read the content that is compressed with a codec that does not include Windows or the default player (for example, a file compressed with the DivX video codec or the Ogg Vorbis audio codec). Because the player is extensible, in many cases you can download the necessary codec on the web for free or for a fee.

    You can visit the following links for more information on codecs:

    You can also view the following link to download the audio file conversion programs and check if you can convert AVCHD to Mpeg.

  • Have used Windows Movie Maker very well for months and now it stops just to work

    OK, so I had a recent problem with Movie Maker. How original is that? For months and months I used it with only minor headaches. But I can't understand it and I spent hours to friction on this problem and the search for something. All Google tell me is to make sure that my files are in a format that is accepted! Duh! I use them very well until about a month ago.

    After months of works very well, many of my clips imported media (especially. AVI and others. WMV) has decided to stop working one day. The video will not play, but the sound is very good. I re-imported the videos just to be sure, but no luck... He would not even show a thumbnail after I imported the.

    Original title: what is the problem with WMM? Help, please!
    I tried to look at the files in Media Player and got a black screen with audio complete.
    I reformatted the. AVI files (using zamzar.com) in. Format WMV, but when I tried to import those, he would give me some nonsense. In any case, I tried to defrag my drive hard as someone suggested online (I have an old computer anyway) but I don't really think it helped.
    It could be a codec problem (I don't know what would have prompted such), the Enigma is that SOME of my clips will play in the preview, but they stop working as soon as I drag them on the timeline. And I found one. WMV file in one of my old projects that will play in the panel mounting.
    I even tried to save an unfinished project to my computer (16:9 aspect ratio, high quality NTSC). But I got an error message: "WMM cannot be saved to the specified location. Verify that the original source files used in your movie are still available, that the backup location is still available, and that there is enough available disk space, and then try again. "So I tried to save the recommended"best suited"on a blank CD and it always gave me this message
    I hope this info helps (I don't know what most of it means):

    The most common reasons for Movie Maker problems are...

    (1) source incompatible or damaged (video clips, pictures, music files).

    (2) incompatible, corrupt or nonexistent filters (Codecs).

    (3) projects that are too big or too complex for the system resources.

    First... Open Movie Maker and go to... Tools / Options /.

    improvement.

    If no improvement, return to the same settings
    and left click Restore values by default all the button / OK.

    As for file formats...

    Several formats are apparently compatible with

    Audio - wav, wma, wmv

  • Using Windows Movie Maker on the error message XP__ not indexed _ bad quality

    I use Windows Movie Maker XP (version 2.1?).  I've converted and imported a lot of videos.  I have a group of short videos recorded the same day.  I (with free STROKE) converted to AVI and they play with no audio and several play accelerated.  I've then diverted to ASF and some of them imported correctly.  Most of them gave me an error message that they were not indexed.  I downloaded several things to remedy this from online forums: I uninstalled K-Lite pack codec, Expression Encoder 4, WinDVR AVI, DivFix, lame and a number of things.  That's a family movie, I spent a lot of time on it.  If anyone can help with my old hardware and software configuration at this point I'd appreciate it.  The original film seems to be of much better quality than what I am able to import.  Thank you!

    The most reliable video format for Movie Maker is. WMV.

    No guarantee... but the following freeware converter
    may be worth a try:

    Once installed... Open Sothink and go to... Add the files button...
    Find and select the clips you want to convert.

    Next... in the encoding settings... Choose... Video credits.

  • I can't publish a file using Windows Movie Maker despite after every single step and instruction

    I use Windows Movie Maker c. 5.1. (Build 2600) on a computer running Windows XP Professional 2002, SP 3. I try to publish a movie file which is a revised version of a WMV file. In other words, the original file is a file WMV is 534 MB.  I am editing the film by dividing and by deleting scenes, adding transitions and titles.  I am able to save the file (for a WMM file) but impossible to publish the movie.  I checked that (i) the files are in the correct location, (ii) the file does not exceed the limit of 4 GB, (iii) the destination does not exist (I tried everything from my desktop to video files).  I tried every possible resolution and the file type.

    I would change the software of movie at this point if I had not invested so much energy and time behind this project.  Help, please!

    Hello not happy with WMM,

    You get an error message when you try to publish?  If so, what is it?

    One thing you might try is breaking your video into 3 or 4 smaller sections and see if they work / will be published separately.

    See you soon

    Canon HV30 HDV Capture Issues Firewire in Win 7 (64-bit)

    There seems to be a problem with Windows 7 (64 bit) in the HD video capture from a Canon HV30 on I.Link (firewire). The camera is detectable, but I am unable to capture videos HD using Windows Movie Maker or Cyberlink Power Director. All the drivers and the software updated.

    Same camera, same editing works very well under Win XP.

    Someone at - he a workarouonds?

    (1) the question arose on January 20, 2010, when I got my new computer (Dell XPS 9000) WIN 7 (64-bit) and I first tried to capture video, I had already shot with the Canon Vixia HV - 30.

    (2) the updated capture in place according to the manual of Canon, using the firewire interface to download video using Power Director 7 or Windows Movie Maker.

    -Power Director 7 is able to detect and control the camera, however once the capture begins an error message appears saying that the i-link on the camera mode is not compatible with the Strip to be captured. Verified media is HDV (60i) and playback camera settings are all correct.

    -Windows Moview Maker is able to detect and control the camera, however, no video is captured and no error message appears.

    (3) will try to reinstall the drivers for the HV30.
