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:

(FWIW... it's always a good idea to create a system)
Restore point before installing software or updates)

Sothink Free Video Converter
http://www.Sothinkmedia.com/video-converter/
(Windows XP / Vista / 7)

You will need to unzip the file... or you could just drag
the Setup.exe from the file out of the folder and drop it on your
desktop and install from there.

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.
WMV - Windows Media Video (*.wmv).

Choose an output folder and on the left, click on the button convert.

You can experiment with other settings later but
This should help you get started.

Good luck...

    All using windows movie maker, I added audio, but I can't hear the music while playing the video... Why is this?

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Unable to capture HD video using Windows Movie Maker or Cyberlink Power Director of Canon HV30 on I.Link (firewire)

    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.

  • Windows Movie Maker cut the end of the clips. Help! Why is this happening?

    I don't understand why this is happening.  I used Windows Movie Maker with VISTA Home Premium often enough.  The images come from the camera I've always used.

    I have a 64-bit computer, where this is relevant.

    I'm working on a new project and twice now, Windows Movie Maker doesn't cut the end of a clip.  I don't get any notification that something is wrong.  It will not just clip the end.

    Why is the happening?  What should I do?

    Thank you.
