1.Re: Imported Movies - Audio sounds hollow
Posted by Neophyte on 3/31/2009 10:25:23 PM
Welcome to the forums.

Try converting your avi files to wmv format and see if that helps. If you need a converter, try using Media Converter to convert your files to wmv format. They offer both a free online file conversion service as well as a free standalone video conversion program.
2.Re: unable to open/import .mkv file

Welcome to the forums.

Movie Maker doesn't support that format - try converting them to wmv format or re-encode them as an avi file with one of the codecs listed as 'friendly' to MM on PapaJohn's website (see the "Import Source Movie Files > Video > Video Codecs" page).

You're welcome - good luck with your movie making.
4.Re: Blaines effects not working
Posted by Neophyte on 9/18/2017 8:54:12 AM
Welcome to the forums.

Which of Blaine's effects did you download and which version of Movie Maker are you using?
5.Re: Blaines effects not working
Posted by Neophyte on 11/1/2017 8:23:56 AM
Please check again the version of Movie Maker you're using as WMM 2.0 is a very old version (it was released in 2002) and only works on Windows XP.

Posted by Neophyte on 12/21/2009 10:27:20 PM
Welcome to the forums.

Check which version of Movie Maker you have by opening Movie Maker and going to the "Help" menu and clicking on "About Windows Movie Maker". Post back with the info listed for the version number.

Also, what effects did you download and try to install? Once we know which ones they are and which version you have, someone should be able to help you to get them to work.

Double check to make sure you're following the steps detailed in this thread when adding them to Movie Maker.
8.Re: Help? Effects won't work
Posted by Neophyte on 12/29/2009 9:22:42 PM
Once you've added the xml file to the AddOnTFX folder, you should find the effects you just added listed in the Movie Maker list of effects. You do not need or want to import the xml file into Movie Maker.

If the effects don't show up, post back with which version of Movie Maker you installed on your Windows 7 machine.
9.Re: Titles for Vista?
Posted by Neophyte on 6/24/2010 9:13:40 PM
sweetxmemory - post back with the xml code for the specific title you want to use in version 6.0 and someone should be able to create the code for Vista.
10.Re: Titles for Vista?
Posted by Neophyte on 6/28/2010 9:06:25 PM
If you haven't done so, check out considerate_guy's pinned post as a number of them may have already been converted for Vista.

In the meantime, I'll take a look at converting them as time permits. Check back periodically as I'm not sure how long that might take.

FYI, those titles were created by other forum members and I simply compiled them into a single xml file.
11.Re: Titles for Vista?
Posted by Neophyte on 10/28/2017 8:56:51 AM
Unfortunately, they didn't work; there are more changes to the xml that are needed.

Unfortunately, negative speed values don't work in Movie Maker.

Posted by Neophyte on 10/22/2017 8:45:46 AM
If you haven't already done so, try reinstalling. If that didn't help, try running "System File Checker" to fix the error. See this page for how to run the System File Checker.
14.Re: I am on Windows 7 Ultimate - Best Windows Movie Maker Preferably Capturing Webcam Videos!!
Posted by Neophyte on 10/14/2017 10:02:49 AM
Welcome to the forums.

Windows Live Movie Maker 2012 is the latest version of Movie Maker and it includes the ability to capture webcam video. It was bundled as part of Windows Essentials; but, it is no longer available for download from Microsoft because they stopped supporting it earlier this year. However, you can still download it from the archives; see this
15.Re: Must I Demux an Avi file?
Posted by Neophyte on 7/18/2016 11:02:53 PM
No need to demux. Just mute the original sound track by selecting it and then going to Clip > Audio and clicking on Mute.

I suspect the problem with the narration is a "shortcoming" with your PC. One workaround is to first save your movie without the narration and then import that movie into a new project and then add your narration. Another workaround is to break your project up into smaller pieces and save a movie in each of the pieces. You would then import ...

You're welcome. Just post back if you run into any problems.
17.Re: Still using XP Windows Movie Maker--mostly successfully but need help
Posted by Neophyte on 8/4/2017 9:54:31 AM
Welcome back.

1. Most likely the problem is that the file types from the new equipment are not supported by the XP version of Movie Maker. Try converting the files to wmv files and see if that resolves the problem.

2, Click here here for a tutorial on using Windows Live Movie Maker. You can also find a number of video tutorials on Youtube.

Windows Live Movie Maker was the latest version of Movie Maker and was included as part of the Windows Essential package. Microsoft stopped supporting it the beginning of this year. If it isn't already installed on your laptop, see this page for where you can download a copy.

Once you've ...

Posted by Neophyte on 8/8/2017 12:03:25 PM
I just checked the link for the English (United States) version of Windows Live Movie Maker from my previous post and the setup file downloaded without a problem. You might want to give it another try.

Posted by Neophyte on 8/13/2017 3:17:35 PM
The anti-virus program may scan the file when downloaded. If it doesn't, once you've downloaded the file, you can usually right click on the file and there will be an option on the pop-up menu to scan the file.
21.Re: REHAN does not care!
Posted by Neophyte on 10/30/2010 10:21:28 PM
user2 - Rehan has a long and outstanding record of contribution to the Movie Maker community and many satisfied users of his plug-ins. Thus, your post is completely opposite of what I've found to be the case and I find your assertions largely unsupported. Furthermore, "flaming" of other members is not permitted in these forums. For now, I'll assume your post is strictly a reflection of your frustration.

Have you tried contacting Rehan directly with your problem? ...

user2 - looks like you owe Rehan an apology.
23.Re: mpeg streamclip import problem
Posted by Neophyte on 10/7/2016 2:49:48 PM
Welcome to the forums.

I don't think mpeg streamclip supports wmv files. You can try converting your wmv file to a supported file format or post back with what you're trying to do with the clip in mpeg streanclip and we might be able to suggest a another way to do it that wouldn't require you to convert the file.
24.Re: mpeg streamclip import problem
Posted by Neophyte on 10/8/2016 9:45:08 AM
FYI, AVI is what is known as a container format and the video within that file could be encoded with any one of a number of different codecs.

If you have Windows Live Movie Maker 2012 (this is the latest version), you can use it to convert it to an mpeg4 with the specific video parameters you want by using a custom profile.
25.Re: mpeg streamclip import problem
Posted by Neophyte on 10/8/2016 1:57:07 PM
That's the version and it should work on your system.
