Movie Maker showing errors after I installed windows updates. HELP!

Q: Movie Maker showing errors after I installed windows updates. HELP!

I've always used windows movie maker to make videos using clips that I take from a point and shoot camera. The files are .AVI and .MTS. I've never had problems before. Then I installed the latest window update which "upgraded" to a "better" version of movie maker.

Since the update, I get little yellow error signs in my video clips (different clips every time - not like just one is defective) and it says I must remove the defective videos before I can save the movie to a DVD. When I click on help, it says there is a problem with the codecs. On a seperate similar note - I am not able to open photos that were shot in RAW and the computer won't let me download the codec for RAW! All this codec crap happened after the windows update!

PLEASE HELP! I want my videos and pictures of my baby!! What codecs are needed? How do I get them? AARRGG!

I just got finished making a video in Windows Movie Maker. Windows Movie Maker freezes by itself for no reason once every 10 or 5 minutes. Windows help says to download some DivX stuff and gave me the link. I downloaded it and it seems to be a bit better but it still freezes. This is not a huge problem but it is annoying. The major problem I have is that once I am finished making a video, I go and publish it to my computer. I choose the option that determines the best quality. After it finishes publishing, I play the video. The problem is that the video is split in two. The top half shows the video and the bottom half shows green. Please, I need help with this problem. I have Windows Vista and the version of Windows Movie Maker is 6.0. Here's the link to see how the video looks after it's published: http://www.4shared.com/file/255909503/250e2446/test_vid.html

Have attempted to get Photo Gallery and Movie Maker on my Win 7 Pro computer. Installed Windows Essentials 2012 which is supposed to include these two programs. The only program that installs and shows up on the computer is Microsoft One Drive. Did a search of the computer but did not find either program. A number of websites discuss this problem and offer solutions. I've tried all of the solutions. None have worked for me. My computer specs are more than what is required for these two programs, so that isn't the problem. I'm beginning to wonder if these programs have been eliminated by Microsoft.

Any ideas would be welcomed.

This morning I saw the latest Windows 7 updates on an old computer I have (A VM running in XCP-NG) to run an old version of Confluence Wiki but that's not really important.
After installing the updates and rebooting the VM is so slow that it looks frozen at times. I restarted it in safe mode to remove the updates but when I access the Windows Updates list from Programs and Features it shows "No updates installed."
Has anyone else seen something like this? I have backups of this VM so I'm working to restore from a backup and before you ask, I know - I have to update that Win7 machine to a more recent version of Windows.

When I attempt to import it into a project, I receive a message, saying that

I'm working on a joke movie as a birthday present for a friend. Unfortunately, I seem to have a problem. I'm composing a movie using something like 30-35 AVI clips, 2 BMPs, and 3 music clips (2 MP3, 1 OGG). Anyway, I've get everything all set up, the clips are strung together, I've got credits, titles, the whole shebang, but when I try to save it to my PC, it gets everywhere from 39% to 54% before seeming to stop and the time just keeps increasing. The finished movie will be something like 94 MB, and it's over 11 minutes long. Does anyone know of a way to get around this seemingly endless wait time for my movie to finish saving?

It gets to about 20% saved and then stops and tells me that my files are missing and I must remove the unusable items and try again! But none of the files are corrupt or unusable and all work fine, they aren't missing either as I have not moved them from the folder they have been in since I started the project!

If anybody has any advise or knows how to fix the problem I am having I would be highly grateful as I have many people depending on me to have this video done! Thanks!

(Note: I don't mean saving the project file)

Okay, so. My friend's the one who's actually having this trouble, and I thought I'd help her out. So, I have all the files--including the project file she used--on my machine. I got the exact same message that she did--the message in question:
When she told me this problem, I'd assumed it was her PC. Yet, I've gotten the exact same error on my machine. Now, number one: I have all the source files. Number two: I have well over 300 GB of space, and 4 gigs of RAM. Yet, the video will not save, regardless of what I try. I've loaded in every missing file associated with it, and I've run the entire video through the preview--perfectly.

Now... I have two things that I'd like to ask: number one, is there a way to either force WMM to save it to a video file? And two: is there another video-editing program that will allow me to use a WMM project file, or that will allow me to convert a .mswmm [WMM] project file to a project file for their system?

(I know, I probably shouldn't have volunteered to help, but I couldn't help it. So, if anyone can help me out here, ANY assistance would be greatly appreciated.)

I don't know why it won't export though. I manually checked all my source files to make sure they weren't missing or broken, and the two drives I tried to save the movie to had far more than enough space. I don't know what is the problem.

The only thing that might cause the error may be that I use some AVI and MPEG-1 movie files in there with codecs (from the K-Lite pack) that trigger ffdshow encoder icons in the taskbar.

Anyone know what's the problem?

I don't know what's wrong with it. All I know is,, it's NOT normal that the remianing time is 1 million minutes over night. No! I'd def. cancel it once. Then, I'd save the project, restart the comp, open the saved project, and give just one more try with the same output setting, but I'd only wait for 30 seconds to 1 minute at longest to see if the remainig time starts going down. If that doesn't work, i'd cancel, and change the output setting. maybe you don't have a codec necessary to encode whatever output format you chose. If you change the output, then, it may work..

OS is Vista Home Premium. I'm using Windows Movie Maker to edit home videos (add music, shorten videos) in attempt to make DVD. When I try to use Windows DVD Maker to create a DVD it stalls during "encoding". I've tried to make a DVD using the same videos with just Windows DVD Maker - it worked. I then tried to use the same videos in Movie Maker (un-edited) and then make DVD with Windows DVD Maker - it worked. It seems to be some type of encoding issue. How can I solve this issue?

A:Windows Movie Maker to DVD Maker mess

If it is working with unedited files it may be a problem with the audio(music) files and their encoding. Try with some other music files from a different source and see if that allows you to burn.
You could try downloading and installing GSpot 2.70a an analysis tool, usually used for video analysis, but will analyse audio as well. Once installed open it and open your music file in it. On the LHS panel it will tell you which audio codec is needed to encode/decode your file and if you have the correct codec on your computer.
The K-Lite codec pack (link in my signature) has a number of audio and video codecs bundled and may be worth installing.

Playing from start, it has the first 6 box frames lined up perfectly with the song hitting a key point of 16.80 seconds.

but when ever i try to make an edit in the middle of it, for some odd reason the music plays at 18.60.

it is very bothersome to try and edit this entire piece without having to relisten the whole entire track over and over.

I created a short small movie (just under 11MB) in WMM. I imported a youtube clip that I converted from FLV to WMV. I also added a soundtrack (MP3). The only other aspects of the design were some subtitles. No real special effects to speak of.

When I try to save the movie it stops at 75%. It tells me that I have one of three problems:
-not enough memory in destination file (I know I am ok here)
-make sure original source files are available (WHAT IS THIS?)
-saving location is available (it is).

I am trying to save it for use on my computer. I actually want to use it for a meeting I am doing and project it on a screen.

What am I doing wrong?

A:Saving a movie in Windows Movie Maker

Your second point - "Make sure original source files are available" - You should be okay in this part too since you're able to start saving, which means the files you are using are located in your computer.

That means you're 3 for 3 and you should not be experiencing any problems at all, which means the problem lies elsewhere.

Need more to go on.

Try using a WMA file instead of MP3 and see if that works for you.

I have tried downloading converters and codecs and movie maker will add the file to the timeline. The problem is when i try to save it. It will go through the first the steps of the saving process until it actually starts to save the file. a message pops up saying, " windows media file cannotsave the movie to the specified location. verify that the original source files used in your movie are still available, that the saving location is still available, and that there is enough free disk space available, and then try again." I MEAN, WHAT THE HECK! I have plenty of room on my hard drive and even when i try to use a usb it still says that when i have nthing on the usb! i swear i want to strangle this program... I upload my videos on my mom's computer that has windows 7 and windows LIVE movie maker and it saves fine, but i don't understand why windows movie maker on xp has to be so darn complicated! please respond A.S.A.P please(: THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Alright.
So I made a montage with Windows Movie Maker, however it simply won't save the movie file, although it will save the project. I've never encountered with problem with my other montages.
Seeing some other questions on these forums I checked my amount of ram, and ended some processes to increase it, currently I'm at 572M/5210 M (Commit Charge), Fluctuating between 6-15% computer usage, and 2.79 GHz, 3.25 GB of Ram. This is with google chrome, task manager, and WMM open.
To check if it wasn't the montage itself I made 2 others, one of the same length, and one about 8 seconds long, both of them caused an error that caused WMM to close immediatly, although it appeared the 8 second long one was going to save. The error message says something went wrong, but the message after it doesn't save is the usual, check if the files are still there ( they are ) and check if you have enough memory (I do).

The old style Windows Movie Maker or the new Live Movie Maker? It sounds like you deleted the clips but didn't close the gap between clips. I'm familiar with that phenomenon on some other editors but I'm not sure how its implemented on WMM.

I have a Toshiba Laptop running Windows Vista home premium and I am using windows movie maker 6.

Main Problem:
I have checked that video file extensions are correct and tried converting videos in smaller pieces also. However when I publish any video on wmm it never passes the estimating time screen. It says estimating time but nothing happens. This means I cannot publish any videos but I can save them as wmm projects. I'm wondering if this is a bug with Vista? Any help?

Second Problem:
I am wondering if these are related. My copy of vista and wmm are legit, however when arriving at microsoft.com they asked for a pid for my wmm, I followed thier instructions to the about section and there is no pid number it just says registered to: and underneath it says there is XXXXXX space left or something like that. The first problem is my major concern as I can't publish any of my home video projects. Thanks for your help in advance.

PS: Do you think Service Pack One will solve this problem and is anyone else facing this problem too?
