The easiest way is to download the installer from this page.

Break out your old 3D glasses and upload them to Youtube.
3.Re: video converter
Posted by neophyte on 8/25/2007 10:52:00 PM
There are a number of online file conversion services. I'd recommend you try Media Converter as it seems to be one of the better ones for converting video (but make sure you check that your file doesn't exceed the maximum allowable size for uploading). Desilucy has step-by-step instructions for it under the "Use a Given Converter" item on his "How Do ...
4.Free DVD Ripper
Posted by Neophyte on 10/13/2009 8:55:21 PM
Now through Oct 31, you can download a free copy of WinX DVD Ripper Platinum here. It can rip a DVD to wmv and a number of other file formats (e.g., DivX, Xvid, MP4, MPEG-2 and FLV).

Rob and Curt - thanks for updating the download info.

It appears the site changed the download link on that page between yesterday morning, when I downloaded the program, and yesterday evening, when I made the forum post. As Curt stated, winx-dvd-ripper-pt-full-oct.exe is the full version and the one you want to download.
6.Re: need to crop videos
Posted by Neophyte on 10/3/2010 9:34:33 PM
sarin - FYI, you can also crop your video in SUPER. To do that, click on the square with the letter C on it under the Options part of the Video section of the SUPER window. That will open a window where you can specify the amount to crop off of each edge of your video,
7.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?
8.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.

Try installing version 6.0 using the instructions on this page.
10.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.
11.Re: unable to open/import .mkv file
Posted by neophyte on 4/9/2008 9:52:59 PM
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).
12.Re: unable to open/import .mkv file
Posted by neophyte on 4/11/2008 9:55:16 PM
You're welcome - good luck with your movie making.
13.Re: Help? Effects won't work
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.

14.Re: Help? Effects won't work
Posted by Neophyte on 12/22/2009 9:54:26 PM
Double check to make sure you're following the steps detailed in this thread when adding them to Movie Maker.
15.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.
16.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.
17.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.
18.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.

Unfortunately, negative speed values don't work in Movie Maker.
20.Re: Windows Live Movie Maker / Unable to install / Error -0x800c0006 !!!
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.
21.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
22.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.
24.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.
