.mswmm is your project file, not a movie file. You need to go to File > Save Movie File. There you can save as .wmv or dv-avi. That you can change to a .mpeg if you find the right encoder/converter program.

I've used TMPGEnc Plus to convert *.wmv (1,796KB) to *.mpg (20,537KB), so that I can share my videos online through MSN Messenger by using Fake Webcam 1.0

First, you don't convert a movie file into a project (mswmm) file... instead you open a movie maker project and then import the movie into a collection and add it to the timeline. It's like the difference between an image file and a word document. You don't convert a picture (e.g. .jpg, .gif, .bmp) into a .doc file. You open a document an insert the picture into it. The document can contain images, but isn't an image. Likewise a Movie Maker project (.mswmm) can contain movies, images, music, etc., but isn't any of these.

Having said that, WMM has problems with .mov, .mpeg and certain .avi files (Divx/Xvid/MPEG-4). PapaJohn has detailed information on possible converters on his site (www.papajohn.org) under 'Import Movie Source Files' > 'Video'. Then look under MOV, AVI or MPEG-2.

Choose 'save to your computer'...

For file type, rather than 'best for my computer', click 'show more options' and 'other'.

Read the second post here. You save your movie (File > Save Movie File) to your computer. You can click on 'show more options' then 'Other' and save in numerous WMV resolutions or in DV-AVI.

Once you have your movie file (not the project file), if you are burning to a DVD, your DVD authoring software will do the conversion for you to MPEG-2 automatically when you choose a video DVD. Otherwise you will have to find other software to convert the WMV/AVI into MPEG.

You want a DV-AVI or a custom WMV profile (See www.papajohn.org > Saving Movie > Custom WMV Profiles > Heading to DVD) for the best quality. Then use your DVD authoring software to burn a *video* DVD.

Try going to File > Save Movie File and saving it as .wmv instead.

yann12 - welcome to the forums.

Movie Maker project files aren't backwards compatible (e.g., you can't open a Vista project file in the XP version of Movie Maker). Which version of Movie Maker did your friend use to save the project and which version of Movie Maker do you have?

FYI, even if you're able to open the project file, you will also need a copy of the source files used in the project in order to use that project file to render a movie on your system. If you just want the movie, ask your friend to save/publish a movie in his project and then give you a copy of that movie. You can then import that movie into Movie Maker on your system and use it to make your own movie.

Try the freeware HandBrake or WinFF. They should be of help!

MPG is a video file type but MSWMM is a Movie Maker project file and not a
video file type. So, no you can't convert.

But you can convert MPG files to AVI using software such as TMPGEnc and then
bring the AVI file into Movie Maker and use it in a movie project.
