Need a codec to convert from Live Movie maker to movie maker

posted in General

I accidently created a slideshow of my holiday photos in Windows live movie maker instead of windows movie maker, I want to burn it to cd and windows live movie maker doesn’t allow you to do that. I thought it would just be a simple case of opening the project in windows movie maker but its telling me i need a codec to be able to open the file in movie maker. Would anybody be able to point me in the direction of which codec that would be? I have the vista operating system...thanks in advance for any reply

not sure since I’ve never used windows live movie maker (not too keen on the live suite from microsoft)

anyway if it lets you do so, save the project file (file, save as - should save as a .mswmm file), and see if regular movie maker will open it. it also depends whether all the effects, transitions, and so on are also available in regular movie maker. reply


it won’t let me save it as any other file type for some reason! reply


I researched this in more detail. Windows Movie Maker won’t open Windows Live Movie Maker project files (.wlmp) reply
