1.How to trim a video
Posted by gotchaoncamera on 3/14/2017 3:35:22 PM
How to trim a video? VLC is my default program for playing mp4 files. when I open windows live move maker and "import" my video if has a little yellow warning triangle on it, if I double click it says file may be corrupt or a format that movie maker cannot read.
makes no difference if windows media player is the default

I thought mp4 was mp4.

to help, the file came from a swann cctv and was converted to mp4

can you help ...

3.Trim video without sound
Posted by gotchaoncamera on 5/25/2013 2:18:05 PM
I want to trim a video to create a new short video. I don't want any of the original sound so the new video with be visual only. I can trim the video but not create a new video without sound. Is this possible and if so how please, need to be detailed as I have only used movie maker for 5 minutes. I did try adjusting the speaker icon to zero but on the new movie all I had to do was turn it up to get sound and I don't want this to be possible.
thank you in advance

Hi considerate guy,
Thank you for the reply
I have version 11, it came with windows 7.

I have tried turning the volume down using the video volume slider when I trim from my original video. On the new video, all I have to do is turn the volume up and I have the original sound again. I don't want to have the original sound track available.
Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you

I have tried the project and audio mix as you say but the audio mix is greyed out so I cant use it.

considerate guy,
thank you for your continued help
re step 9 I was using save trim from the Trim tab. If I click what looks like a word document in the top left I get save project and save project as. if I select save project as, the only file option given is a wlmp file..if I click the home tab there is a save movie option but I did not know what to pick from the drop down list.
