Problem with Windows Movie Maker 2.6 Re: Save movie file

I get the classic "Windows Movie Maker cannot save the movie to the specified location. Verify that the original source files used in your movie are still available, the location of the backup is still available... "Message ETC, but I have a few additional details that I hope will help someone diagnose what might be wrong:

* In fact, when I import video files (imports are in WMV format - I have converted to WMV using iOrgSoft Video Converter), he split the file into several clips of different lengths to seemingly without rhyme or reason (done on my old computer with a different version of WMM too).

Going to the statements in the following format:

FileName_001 FileName_002 FileName_003 FileName_004... etc.

Then, I divided the clips if necessary to isolate the parts I want to drag them to the timeline.

Anyway, through experimentation I found that for each file, I can use all the clips, it was automatically divided in to the last, where I can only use a certain small part of it (the last of them is usually the largest by far) and have it save in a movie file.

So FileName_001, FileName_002, and FileName_003 will all work and save to a movie file in their entirety, and I can use a smaller portion of the FileName_004 and have it record as well. But if I spent a certain point in this last clip (FileName_004), it will not save.

So let's just say that the 8 seconds of FileName_004 can be saved in a movie file. If I try just to save 2 seconds of a value of the element after only the second 8 FileName_004 brand, it will trigger the "Windows Movie Maker cannot save the movie to the specified location. Message to verify that the original source of the files... ».

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I too Movie Maker 2.6 running in Windows 7 (64-bit), and sometimes she would not publish the movie. So today after reading things here, I did some research and found this page:

I removed the Movie Maker 2.6 from my PC and then downloaded and installed Movie Maker 6.0. I opened the last project of 2.6 MM that would not publish the movie in my new 6.0 and clicked on _Publish to this computer_. And it worked. So I tried a larger project which had also failed to publish the movie and it worked again, producing a 40 MB .wmv file.
So it seems under MovIe Maker 6.0, designed for Vista, works fine under Windows 7, at least if you download the file shown to Movie Maker Blog of Blaine (Blaine Hat!).
BTW, .wmv files, I brought in Movie Maker have been converted to .flv files using a free Quick Media Converter HD download, that I found at cnet.com. I highly recommend it (and its creator, I sent money PayPal).

    What place you are trying to record the movie for?  Help if you do a right click on the shortcut to the Movie Maker program, or the .exe, and then select the option "Run As Administrator"?  Perform, even if your user name is an administrator.

    I recently did some videos, but there was this thing really annoying happening in the middle of the video. Okay, let's say I put together all the clips in Windows Movie Maker for my taste, and it's how I wanted it to be. I saw it and then suddenly in the middle of the video the sound shuts down or freezes the clip or it will just empty. I have not been able to solve and so I can't do more videos without him just hide or cut.

  • Problem with Windows Movie Maker - Audio is messed up

    OK, so I'm doing a film, with the lyrics of a song. I put pictures of her and paired words. It worked fine for a few songs. Then when I went to make another, I imported the song, but the time of audio changes. I mean, it's that I can't say... 0:20 seconds in the song and it should play the same part of the song, whenever I go to 0:20 seconds. On mine, it keeps switching autour. I'll go to 0:20 seconds and it will play what he normally plays at say 0:15 seconds. Or I'll set it to 0:40 seconds and he will play the music to 0:20 seconds. That's when I jump to that point in the song. If I start from the beginning and let him play through, then he plays at the normal time to 0:20 or 0:40 seconds. But he messes up and plays the wrong thing when I skip some time that is not at the beginning. Does anyone else have this problem? How should I do? Should I uninstall WMM and redownload it? Or is it a thing of setting? Help, please! Thank you!

    I had this same problem. Assuming that the music is your use of WMM in iTunes, follow this:

    1. open iTunes

    2. click on Edit--> preferences

    3. click on import settings

    4. in the drop-down arrow next to the import to help:, select WAV encoder

    5. press the OK button

    6. now click on the songs you want to use in WMM

    7. click on advanced and click on create the WAV Version.

    8. now, when you return to WMM, click on import Audio or music and go to your iTunes folder. Versions WAV songs you create must be there and when you import, you should have no trouble in :D

  • Is what camcorder compatible with Windows Movie Maker on Vista Home Premium?

    I'm in a bit of a dead end.  I have to make and edit a film which is mostly clips stored in Windows Movie Maker on my old computer which has VISTA Home Premium/64 bit.

    In most old clips (that are compatible), I have to shoot some new images.  My recent purchase of a Sony camcorder does not work.

    Can anyone recommend a camcorder that will have files that are compatible with Windows Movie Maker?  My Sony clips seem impossible to move outside the Sony software so I can't convert them.

    I'm ready to buy a new camera.  I just need something compatible.  Would even buy a used one on E - Bay as long as it will work with the old Windows Movie Maker.

    Can anyone help?

    If its on a memory card to buy a card reader, if you do not. Or if you connect the cable it should allow you to see what on it

    Most camcorders these days support MP4. If it is HD. The new Panasonic cam I have here, I think that it records in MP4. Since it is 1080 p

    The old who is also Panasonic may have been old, (it is not HD), but it had a firewire port.

    But I think that it saved videos like WMV (I mean I don't know that it loaded in Movie maker, when I got it)

    You will have either to buy a program that supports MP4, or use a video conversion program and convert to WMV

    =======================================
    If you're running Vista Home Premium or Ultimate, you can
    be able to import files into Movie Maker directly from the
    DVD... the files you want are in the VIDEO_TS folder and have
    a VOB extension.

    Also... the info is maybe worth a visit:

    DVD Movie Maker 6... in Vista Home Basic

    When you insert the DVD in your DVD player... close

    Computer... right click the icon for the DVD player
    is in, and then select Explorer.

    The files you need from the DVD are the. VOB files.
    You will find them in the VIDEO_TS folder. Copy them
    in a folder on your hard drive.

    First... just try to rename one of the. VOB files to
    . MPG or .avi 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.

    (FWIW... you can probably play the files renamed
    in Windows Media Player to be sure that VOB

    If you are unable to import the files they need to be converted
    another .wmv format would be a good choice.
