Hi Bauer327,

iTunes music is in AAC format, which is not compatible with Windows media player. You may have to convert the format AAC to MP3 and then try to add it to windows media player.

ITunes music sometimes has DRM protection. You will need to remove the protection license, and then try with windows media player.

    Hello
     
    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. Some files also require you to install a codec before you can use the files in Windows Movie Maker.
    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.

    If you published (recorded) in the movie WMV format...
    You can re-import but this will be a single clip just like any
    another file source video.

  • How can I add music from songs purchased on itunes to my movie maker project

    I can't download music purchased on itunes store for my movie maker project.

    Eldemira,

    Windows Movie Maker can accept audio files in MP3 or AAC format.  Thus the newer files from the iTunes Store should work.  But if you bought before mid-2009 and iTunes files have not improved their, they are "protected" and cannot be used.

    Hi Marlene,

    Thanks for posting this question in the Microsoft Community.

    I imagine the inconvenience that you are experiencing. I'll certainly try and help you in the matter of fixing.

    1. using Windows Movie Maker in Windows Live Movie Maker?

    2 when was the last time you were able to download the videos?

    3 did you a recent software or changes to the material on the computer?

    . WLMP files aren't really movies, this is why you cannot view it with something else. A .wlmp is a film project file, it is essentially the "recipe" to create the final product.

    I would also like to inform you that Facebook accept only certain types of file formats.

    You just need a step more in Movie Maker, you must publish the movie, which will create the AVI or WMV file or whatever the format you choose. Then, you can download the files. Try it and tell us if it helps.

    Through Facebook help page to learn more.

    If the problem persists, you can also publish the query to the Movie Maker forum.

    Hope this helps and let us know if you need help with Windows. We will be happy to help you.

  • Adding my own music to Windows Movie Maker projects & computers mi change project.

    I used Windows Movie Maker to make two DVDs for the graduation of daughter gifts.  I was almost done and tried to add my own music but can't seem to figure out how.  In addition, I discovered that my disc on my computer was not working so I saved my projects to a USB key and went to another computer.  When I opened the project format and title pages were there, but all the photos that I spent hours to download and organize projects disappeared.  How can I get my projects into DVD, and how do I add my own music in them?  If anyone has any suggestions I would really appreciate it. I'm short on time.

    The Movie Maker project file does not include the source files
    (Photos, video clips, music videos) it simply records the path
    the files have been imported since the file/s.

    Whan you see red Xs where thumbnails used to be
    in Movie Maker, it indicates the original source files have
    been deleted, moved, renamed or is otherwise not available.

    If you had a backup file of all source files on your new
    system, you can right-click on the red Xs and get access to the
    location of the files and restore the path, otherwise
    you will have ot start again.

    With regard to the addition of your own music... If you have any questions
    import music files it is probably a problem of format.
    Convert music clips on the. WMA format before
    import into Movie Maker should provide a better result.

    DVD files you need for editing are the
    . VOB files. Copy them to a folder on your hard drive
    drive. You can find them on the DVD in the VIDEO_TS
    folder.

    First... just try to rename one of the. VOB files to
    . MPG and see if it will matter in Movie Maker.
    If import works... drag the file to the timeline and
    Economy/publication it to .wmv or .avi format. Then...
    Re - import new video film for editing purposes.

    If this does not work... rename the file back to VOB and try

  • Cannot publish the Windows Movie Maker project

    I created the project video with Windows Movie Maker, but I can't publish on the computer, a dvd or as an attachment to e-mail.  The program continues to operate in the error "check the original source of file, a place edition available and available disk space and then try again."  How can I post in any of these formats?  What Miss me?

    This error occurs when the project is too big or too complex for
    system resources or it contains files sources (photos, video clips,
    music clips) that are not compatible with Movie Maker or corrupted.

    Several formats are apparently compatible with
    Movie Maker, but the most reliable choices are:

    Photos - bmp
    Video - wmv or dv - avi
    Audio - wav, wma, wmv
