1.Re: Is WMM Matroska (.MKV) capable?
Posted by darthsinister on 2/3/2009 8:47:13 PM
the .avi files depends on the codecs and the decoders, so say I might have a decoder, is there a possibility that it will work?
2.Re: Is WMM Matroska (.MKV) capable?
Posted by darthsinister on 2/4/2009 3:03:03 PM
Well I checked the codec's I have installed and discovered that you'll need Haali Media Splitter installed for the video which Movie Maker will use and the AC3 decoder for the audio.

I've successfully tested this with WLMM (Windows Live Movie Maker) and was able to publish a .WMV file transcoded from a Matroska Media File.

However, seeing that I don't have a copy of Windows Vista anymore (I overwrote it with Windows 7 because of the efficiency) could people ...
3.Is WMM Matroska (.MKV) capable?
Posted by darthsinister on 1/22/2009 5:22:50 PM
I stumbled upon an great file format for my HD videos that I rip from Blu-ray discs and put on my laptop when on the go.

I just wanted to know if .mkv files can be imported and edited and saved in any version of Windows Movie Maker.

I would like to be able to play these HD files on my XBOX 360.

For those of you who dont know: "The Matroska Multimedia Container is an open standard free Container format, a file format that can hold an ...

6.Re: Improved Bluescreen transition
Posted by darthsinister on 1/17/2007 6:55:06 PM
Currently I've seen (with WMM) Bluescreen, Blackscreen, Greenscreen, and Whitescreen. Green, white and black have to be the exact colour or it wont work.

Try saving it as a video and post a link. It will me understand what your talking about.

PapaJohn, in your home movie "mission to mars" what did you use as the set? I think I might know the place you filmed, becasue I've been to a place that looks exactly like that.

so I've just formed a mini film-group and we have a page on Facebook and Youtube. I'm still taking time to edit because I use Adobe After Effects and WLMM, so just spread the word and in time you'll see Magic =]

14.Re: do i need to install codecs for Flip camcorder ?
Posted by darthsinister on 10/16/2009 12:56:52 PM
What format does the Flip render files in? You may have to convert them to something like DV-AVI or .wmv so that Windows Movie Maker can edit them.
15.Re: WMV to DVD for Projector
Posted by darthsinister on 10/16/2009 12:52:42 PM
Sorry for the late reply, I've been off the forums for quite a while. If you want a automated slideshow made, then I'd recommend using Microsoft's PhotoStory 3.

You can run that on any version of Windows, XP and up. It automatically makes a Slide show with all your pictures and you can add your own music or custom stuff that PhotoStory can make for you to fit the exact length of the Slideshow.

After creating the .wmv file, I'd recommend using Windows DVD ...

Welcome to the ForumsSmiley

Windows Movie Maker is perfect for editing your videos but if you would like to burn the files to DVD I would highly recommend using an external program. If you are using WIndows Vista Home Premium or Ultimate then you can try 'WIndows DVD Maker' which is built right into it.

If you are on Windows XP then perhaps you could download the 15 full trial ...
17.Re: wmm / dazzle dvc100 problems
Posted by darthsinister on 9/23/2009 12:26:24 PM
I just bought that and am using it fine with Windows Movie Maker 2.6 on Windows 7 RTM.

Don't use the Pinnacle Software that came with it just make sure you have the most up-to-date drivers.

Click "Capture from video Source" on the top left and Windows Movie Maker should recognize the Dazzle as it would recognize a Firewire camera or USB Webcam.

I've had a problem with audio where WMM does not recognize the audio inputs. To fix that ...
18.Re: Quicktime Files not found ?
Posted by darthsinister on 9/23/2009 12:20:00 PM
Welcome to the forumsSmiley

.MOV and Quicktime files are not recognized by WMM. You will need to convert them to .avi or .wmv files.

What version of Windows Movie Maker are you using?

Your best bet would be using a free converter called
19.Transfer 8mm and high8 tapes?
Posted by darthsinister on 9/15/2009 3:15:54 PM
So I found some of my old 8mm and high8 tapes around the house and I now want to go digital with them. Only problem is that my camera broke and no longer functions and I can't find a 8mm tape deck anywhere.

How can I transfer the tapes to my computer without having to buy another camera? Any such player or converter? I have around 80 tapes so giving them to Geek Squad isnt an option on my budget.

Any clues?

You wont lose quality while converting if you set the output bitrate much higher than the input bitrate, infact things might look better. (double click to get information on input file)

21.Windows 7 Multi Touch Interface on HP Touchsmart
Posted by darthsinister on 9/8/2009 8:41:17 PM
Hey guys,

Well I've finally saved up enough to get what I've wanted since it was announced: a HP Touchsmart Desktop PC!

From the review's I've read, the Vista interface is nice but the task bar buttons are too unwieldy; I can't wait to try this on my copy of the Windows 7 RTM tho.

I'm really curious to how precise the touchscreen will be, because it isn't a heat sensing or pressure sensing display, from what I've heard the screen uses a IR ...

Hey PJ, how did you manage to install the other versions of WMM on your Windows 7? Like MM6 from Vista and such. I mean is there an installer you can obtain from somewhere or something?
