Windows Movie Maker spans video

I use Windows Movie Maker 5.1 on XP.

When I import a video portrait in WMM, it spans the video to fill the preview, making the video look "fat". When I save the movie, the output seems tense.

Is it possible to maintain the original dimensions of the video, thus leaving a black space on the sides of the video?

Did some research and it helped:

It turns out that wmm does not maintain the proportions. At first, I imported my wmv video and turned using wmm, but it was tense. So I went and shot using another program to make potrait. When I imported it again, it is also tense. It turns out that that's the long way round. Sorry if I did not mention the full detail. I used the effect of 'spin the right person' and it worked. Thank you

  • Windows Movie Maker audio/video synchronization problems

    I am changing a video on Windows Movie Maker (5.1), and when I cut a piece of the file clip and trimmed other part beside him, some delay seconds started with the change. Only, it starts at one point and continued for the rest of the video. I need to solve this problem, and I'm terrible with computers. Can someone help me sort whatsoever?

    It would be a massive help!

    Something to try...

    For the timeline... trying to drag a second instance

    Right click / Mute the Audio track.

    You can drag the file to the audio / music

  • Windows movie maker problem: video cut or turns off

    I have windows vista on my computer and I tried to use the windows movie maker program to make a music video.  the video I got was originally in MP4 format so I used Format Factory to convert WMV (I also did AVI).  for some reason when I'm working on the video images goes off and I can't see the stage.  Sometimes I get the picture but most of the time I don't have.  I also tried to use AVI format but the problem is always the same.

    I read and I think it would be that the resolution could be the problem, if so, how can I change that on Format Factory?
    It could also be that Format Factory is perhaps not good enough, are there other free conversion programs I could use?
    other than that, I don't know why the image freezes (music plays again)
    any kind of help will be greatly appreciated!

  • Impossible to import a clip in Windows Live movie maker or regular Windows movie maker avi video

    Original title: Director of windows

    I can't import a clip avi video in windows movie maker direct or regular windows movie maker. Only the audio comes through. If I have the video edited and produced in other video software, such as cyberlinkthen the video and audio will come by for me to change. I am able to import it into windows movie maker. I use vista 64-bit. What should I do to make this work? Do I need a special codec? I use a hp pavilion p6140f computer

    Michael

    Hi Michael,

    1. This only happens with a particular file type?

    This seems to be a codec problem. Some files supported by Windows movie maker again you will need to install a codec before you can use the files in Windows Movie Maker.

    You can use your favorite search engine to download and install a non-Microsoft video editing software to convert the file into a format supported by 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.

  • Windows Movie Maker: Small video and green screen

    I've been taking videos on Movie Maker for quite awhile and I've never had a problem until today. I've got this show that I have edited. The preview reading is perfectly fine and everything works normally and then I publish. Publication is going smoothly, but something must of happened between this amount of time, because the video is now scrunch all upward on the top (its dimensions are now all distorted to extend over the screen to halfway) and on the bottom half there is just a green screen. It occurs only after the publication. I tried to change an option that I use when publishing... did the same thing. Then I thought maybe it was some kind of title effect I used... it's not. I tried to delete all the effects on my thing and editing like that... This isn't the problem. The only thing that could be a problem, it's that it's a different file, then I usually use I think that... I had like a torrent file, but when I look, it works well and is not. So I do not understand... any suggestions?

After a few hours he failed and returned the error message below.  I then tried to publish it on my desk, which also has a lot of available memory. After a few hours it is again failed. I tried the WMV format. I then tried AVI format on my desk and it has too much, again after many hours.
    I get the error message is:
    "The video file cannot be published to the specified location. Check that the publishing location is still available, that there is enough free space on the disk, and then republish the movie again. »
    It took me a long time to collect the material, so I hope someone can help me out!

  • Windows Movie Maker - Audio only, which plays in the exported project

    Hello.

    I did a project in windows movie maker with video and audio files. Project perfect cheek (the two audio/video playback) in windows movie maker when I am in the phase "creation/editing. When I export it and save the project as a. MP4 or. WMV file and try to play in Windows Media Player, Quicktime or VLC, as the audio of my theatre project. There is no video. However, when I play the other. MP4 files or. WMV files via these media players, they play very well. So I think that the problem is with the export of the Movie Maker project. Also, thinking that I have perhaps incompatible video files to Windows Movie Maker, I tried just using Jpeg files with audio to create a slide show, thinking that it would work with standard Habitat. Yet once, however, that the audio is played with a project containing pictures (no video). Any ideas?

    Audio was working fine, just no photos or video showing once the project has been saved as a movie. So, I tried your solution of creating a short slide show with photos only and no luck. I uninstalled and reinstalled movie maker and still no luck. Downloaded the pack codek for windows 7 and still no luck.

    So, I decided to download the Vista windows movie maker for my OS to windows 7 and everything works like a charm. Don't know how or why, but the version of Vista is flawless on my windows 7.

    Thanks for your suggestions. I appreciate the help.
