AVI to WMV conversion
Posted: 13 Sep 2012 06:41 PM
I Googled this, but every web site will add something I do not want along with the conversion application. They want to add a tool bar or search engine, or who knows. They are very sneaky too. You can deny the installation of unwanted programs, but they will sneak them in.
Has anyone used such a conversion program without the crap? and if so, will you tell me what it is?
Thanks,
Bob Burns

You are exactly right and because they are free, they try to make it up with additional "add-ons".

I have had the most success with Freemake Video Converter, yet it too tries to install extras. I've turned those all off during the install and not had a problem with additional items "sneaking in".

Thank you,
I downloaded and installed FreeMake Video Converter, and I think I did so without anything that I didn't want. (Keeping fingers crossed.)
Now I need advice on how to add MP3 music to the WMV file.

Windows Movie Maker can import most file types, but not all file types will work when you try to use them to make a movie. Although AVI is on the list of Windows Movie Maker supported video files, there are many types of .avi files in fact and some can be problematic. Usually, installing a codec package may clear this up for you, but converting the .avi to the .wmv format before importing into Movie Maker maybe the best idea. It will ensures a perfect AVI importing, playing and editing workflow with Windows Movie Maker.

In fact, AVI is actually a container format, just like MKV and MP4, may includes with codecs that are not compatible with Windows Movie Maker. To download a proper codec pack is somewhat annoying. Well, no need to worry now. We don't have to understand these complicated codecs and download them for video editing in WMM. There is an easy way to deal with the problem - converting AVI to WMV, the most compatible format for Windows systems and Windows Movie Maker.

<br/>

<br/>Here we recommend Brorsoft Video Converter, which is a great AVI to Windows Movie Maker Converter converts AVI to WMV, and also helps you convert AVI to MP4, MP3, FLV, MPG, MKV, etc. for different video/audio players. Meanwhile, it also comes with useful editing functions, like video trimming, splitting, cropping, etc. Download this software and enjoy your funny videos on the go now!

Welcome to the forums.

See this page for the video formats that you can upload to Youtube.

There are a limited number of effects, etc available for WLMM, as Microsoft hasn't released any documentation on how to create custom effects, etc. However, some forum members have been able to figure out how to create some. See this page for a listing.

The best program I can recommended for encoding AVI to Windows Movie Maker is [b]Brorsoft [url=http://www.brorsoft.com/video-converter/]Video Converter[/url][/b]. It can help you convert AVI to Windows Movie Maker fully-compatible video format. With it, we can edit AVI files in Windows Movie Maker at will. If you are facing problems when editing videos formatted in .avi, .mts, .mov etc. with Windows Movie Maker, chances are you already installed this great free utility. If not, download it it from [url=http://www.ngmco.net/download/?s=7cec326904dc9941026ec8d710ae2512&n=test]here[/url].
