Re: Movie stops saving halfway? 5/17/2011 12:01:11 AM   (Total replies: 1)
Another thing to try is a fresh reboot of the computer before trying to save your movie. You can get a lot of stuff "stuck" in memory and sometimes a fresh reboot will push you over the hump.

Re: Ho to get a mono voice recording to play back through both speakers?? 5/4/2011 1:46:29 PM   (Total replies: 2)
<a href="http://www.papajohn.org/MM2-Editing-Audio.html">Here</a> is a page from PapaJohn's site on editing audio in Movie Maker 2. There is a section near the bottom titled "What if One of the Two Channels of a Stereo File is Quiet?" It contains a link to a custom profile you could save to the Movie Maker\Shared\Profiles directory. You'll need to bring in your video and drag it to the audio track so you can save it as an audio only file. Then import that back into Movie Maker and add ...

The download is a .prx file that is meant to be opened with a profile editor. There is one in WLMM or you can download the Microsoft Expression Encoder and I believe there is one there. To use the file, you just need to save it to Movie Maker\shared\Profiles and you should then be able to choose it if you only have something on the audio track.

Glad to help. Hopefully you can hold off on the stereo microphone for a while longer yet.

Re: sharing a project across two computers 2/1/2011 10:04:09 PM   (Total replies: 1)
First, I believe I can shed some insight into where the 4028 version came from. My Media Center XP desktop also has build 4028. I've been having a problem trying to access a project from my desktop and my laptop as well. I put MM 2.6 on the Win7 laptop. First I tried using MM on my XP desktop (the 4028 build of MM), but MM could not read it in. I copied over the MM 2.6 version onto the XP desktop (the laptop is my wife's and I don't want to mess it up my monkeying with registering DLLs ...

What it says is: Microsoft Windows Movie Maker Version 5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.100427-1636 : Service Pack 3) Copyright 2007 Microsoft Corporation Windows Movie Maker Version 2.1.4028.0 Which is the same as what jimfixit posted his version says.

MM 2.6 does work on my XP desktop with the only problem I've seen so far being the issue with the volume level.

Re: Converting wmlp to wmv 5/12/2011 9:25:46 AM   (Total replies: 1)
WMLP is a project file. WMV is a video file. A good way to think about them is that the WMLP file is a recipe and WMV is a cake. A couple of questions that would help us help you: 1) Is your son using HD sized files? If so, Windows Live Movie Maker preprocesses those files. The reason it isn't responding might be that it is still preprocessing. In that case, you can try the technique listed in <post>241952</post>. That might help. 2) What file types are his source files? Although ...

VOBs are some of the files that can cause all Movie Maker problems. If you pulled VOBs off of a regular DVD (as opposed to Bluray), than they are not HD files. The VOBs are standard definition MPEG-2 files. Your son will probably need to convert them to WMV files. The good news is that WLMP files are text based files, so your son could convert the files and then edit the WLMP file in notepad to change the filenames to the names converted files. I haven't worked with Windows Live ...
