Ahora crear películas es todavía más sencillo con el nuevo Movie Maker 2.1, que incluye una mayor compatibilidad con otros programas de audio y video así como una mejor estabilidad. Descárguelo junto a Windows XP Service Pack 2.

physical Memory 512 mb
Available 198mb
Virtual mem 2.00g
available virtual mem 1.96g

I need to take this cd to a freinds to turn it into a dvd. Its to play at my sons Graduation open house, so I feel the deadline looming.

copying the .vob files will result in an mpeg2 file which is not compatible to MM. You need to convert the file...

Dear MovieMaker:

Sorry to report that I was turned down when trying to download WMM as not available at noon PST.

Any other sites I can try?

Thanks,

Not so welcome!

Site says NOT AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD. It's 3 years old, maybe that's the reason?

actually my math is bad it was 4 yrs ago, If you have XP, look under programs for moviemaker or search you computer for movie maker, it comes intergrated in XP. 2.1 is the latest version for XP and how you can tell is by opening up: Movie maker, then open: Help, then open: About Wmm the 2nd and forth lines will tell you if you have Service pack 2 (SP2) and version 2.1. Take care! tt

Thanks, my friend, only a fool would have failed to find it with your precise instructions.

So I had it all along. Now to use it with my Panny DVD D-300 camcorder, oy veh.... Can it be used with downloads from the mini DVD-RAM disc as MPEG-2?

Wmm does not work well with mpeg files, there are many converter programs, some only convert certain types of files. http://neophyte.windowsmoviemaker.info/converters.php Neo has put together this list of freeware converters. The 2 i use most are Super and Aimersoft (giveaway of the day a few months back) Many use Windows Media Encoder, if you try wme or Super take a look at http://www.desilucy.com/index.php?lvl=3 on how to use a given converter. You will find DesiLucy's and www/papajohn.org very helpful in figuring out what works what doesn't. There is one "workaround" for using mpeg2 files can be found here http://www.hitthebongo.co.uk/videofx/MPEG2/MPEG2.html now if this all seems complicated, well it is at first, as you learn what works, it gets easier! Good luck with your project! tt

Oldgoaly, thanks. Have already become aware that WMM wil NOT take MPEG and the prospect of having to use a converter for something that BillyGates should have had the decency to include, makes me look to other programs. In fact, staying with the Chinese software from Panasonic is less of a struggle.

I want to create a movie, but when I import a video-part I hear the sound but the screen doesn't show the images, it stays green.

What is the problem here, and how can I solve this?

Thanks for you assistance here.

lostincyberspace - welcome to the forums.

Please do a version integrity check by opening Movie Maker and going to the "Help" menu and clicking on "About Windows Movie Maker". Post back with the info on the first four lines on the window that opens.

The version integrity is fine...thanks for that info.
Do the images import to the timeline or story board if you don't have the mp3 in the project yet?
Mp3's cause random issues at random times...although I haven't heard of them causing that symptom before.
Let us know...

Hi everybody,
The first thing I tried was working with the .jpgs, then an hour or so later the .mp3.... it should be simple, drag-drop or copy-paste, but nada, nothing sticks.
I truly appreciate any help I can get!

Thanks
