Want to convert Windows Movie Maker file to WMV! Please help

Page 1 of 111 3 4 last »

Ok, I made a movie in Windows Movie Maker, and I want to convert it to WMV so I can watch it in Windows Media Player and upload it on Youtube. Do I need to download a specific codec or what?? I have Prism Video Converter, but it doesn’t recognize the Windows Movie Maker file. reply

Movie Maker CREATES wmv files as the default output.

Unless... I think this is what I think you may have done. When you ran movie maker, you clicked file, save as, which saves the project (aka the steps you used to make the movie, and links to the video clips, sound clips, and/or effects) instead of producing the movie. A movie maker project file would have extension .mswmm . The right way to produce the movie is to click on any of the options under “3. Finish Movie” (I think they all produce wmv files in one way or other - except maybe “Send to DV camera” - the best choice is probably “Save to my computer”.) reply

In fact, you don’t need to convert it, you just need to open it with your Windows Movie Maker, then click “save movie file”, and then “save to my computer”.

Sorry but none of this makes since I’ve spent the past 5 hours trying to understand how to convert a windows movie maker 6.0 file to a .wma format. This doesn’t make any sense to me. I’ve published my movie twice and I do recall seeing it saying that it will save in the .wma format but when i play the finished product it saves it in the windows movie maker format. I’m so fed up with this program. All i need is a program that will help me splice videos together to make one video and save it in a format of my choosing. Please recommend another piece of software, preferably free that will do the job and without the f*cking headache. I give up. reply

No one has given an answer that works. I am having the same problem, mswmm will not covert to wmv, tried all the solutions listed (which are obvious solutions). I downloaded video from a Sony digital camcorder and used AVS converter to be able to get the video to the movie maker program. Is there something with the initial coverter and the codec that is causing the problem? reply

dudes jus do tis

save to your computer by the finish menue

then go to properties and click open with note pad it shows codec
instead of .mswmm type in .wmv

save as name.wmv

done reply
