Re: MP4 Codec ?? 9/9/2014 6:19:16 PM   (Total replies: 1)
You can install <a href="http://download.live.com">Windows Live Movie Maker 2011</a> on Vista. That version can import MP4 files. But WMM 6.0 (and all earlier versions) didn't do a good job with MP4 files. The workaround, if you want to continue with WMM 6.0 is to convert the MP4 to the format Movie Maker prefers of WMV. I've used Freemake Video Converter for this task and I've had no problems with the converted WMV files. If you do install Freemake (or any freeware) always choose a ...

You can have both the WLMM and the classic versions loaded because they are in separate folders. Any conversion can cause a loss, but I've not noticed a big difference, especially if you keep the bitrate high and use the same resolution.

Microsoft forces an update to all components of Windows Essentials. I don't believe there is a way to have leave Live Mail 2009 on your system while upgrading just Movie Maker 2011. As you said, it would force you to upgrade to Live Mail 2011 at the same time. Technically, there should be a way to get an appropriate MP4 codec loaded for your GoPro that will allow editing in Movie Maker, but many people have ended up with projects that don't play correctly and/or won't even save correctly ...

You are going to have an implicit conversion to WMV anyway because the older versions (2009, 2010, 2011) only create WMV files. WMM 2012 doesn't run on Windows Vista but it handles output to MP4 directly. I still think the conversion could work for you and keep the quality you expect. You can also try www.papajohn.org > Importing Source Files > Video > MP4 and see if there are any recommendations. I just know lots of people have tried to load an MP4 codec and had problems. But if you ...

I've used Freemake Video Converter. But, like most freeware, it does offer to install add-ons. To avoid this, you must always choose the "Custom Install" option and uncheck everything it offers. I do this as a matter of course for all freeware for exactly the reason you stated.

Re: replacing video but keeping audio 12/31/2010 12:43:43 PM   (Total replies: 0)
The basic concept is you turn the audio from your clips into the music track so it can run separately. So you make a "wma" version by renaming a copy of "my clip.wmv" to "my clip.wma". You then put both versions into WLMM. You'll end up with the video playing (with sound initially) and a second audio-only copy as the "music" track. After you confirm that everything is lined up, you can set the balance so it is all the way on the audio track, not the video track. Once you have that ...

Re: MTS Files - Please Help! :) 2/3/2012 4:36:48 PM   (Total replies: 1)
Movie Maker prefers .wmv files so I would recommend converting the .mts files to .wmv. A good freeware converter for this job is Freemake Video Converter (Freemake.com). I've used it many times for converting AVCHD into .wmv files before editing in WMM.

Re: Movie Maker cant publish the movie 12/10/2012 9:42:47 PM   (Total replies: 1)
@Makermoviewolf, If the time increases but not the completion percentage, then it isn't rendering your movie (it is stuck). This usually indicates a problem with a source file. Convert all videos to .wmv and all audio files to .wma. Freemake.com has a pair of converters that do a good job of this conversion to .wmv and .wma (Freemake Video Converter, Freemake Audio Converter).

I've had limited success with online converters so I'd try the conversion to .wmv with Freemake Video Converter (freemake.com).
