Re: Best settings when converting from MTS to WMV (any-video converter) 1/10/2012 12:53:21 PM   (Total replies: 1)
I would start by taking a look at the properties of the source file to begin with. A good freeware program for doing this is GSpot (google it). I would match your frame size, bitrate and framerate to match the source video because changing any of those will impact the quality of the converted file. Similarly for the audio data. As for codecs, if there is a Microsoft codec for video and/or audio, I would use that. Codecs are going to depend on the converter and what is on your system.

Convert your files to WMV. Trying to get codecs working correctly is like playing whack a mole. Some problem always keeps popping up. <a href="http://www.freemake.com/">Freemake</a> makes a good freeware converter. Just remember that being freeware, they attempt to install crapware with it. The only thing it needs to install is the .NET Framework.

Re: Directly Importing MP4s 12/21/2011 1:38:31 PM   (Total replies: 1)
I wish you luck directly using your MP4s. Based on my experiences, I prefer converting my source clips first, but it is a personal preference. One thing I noticed when I tried to use the MPG files from my camcorder is that I had more problems the more complicated the project became. It is something to keep in mind and watch for if you start doing a project that starts having more clips in it than you normally use. You might run into problems and need to subdivide the project.

Re: Free conversion .mov files to .wmv files 11/3/2011 7:37:26 AM   (Total replies: 0)
Do you lose quality when you convert a movie, yes you always do. The relevant questions are do you lose enough quality to really notice a difference and does the converted movie make editing your movie easier? Freemake typically does a great job and gives you movie files that work very well with Movie Maker that make editing a lot easier. My personal experience is that converting the MPEG2 files from my camcorder to a more Movie Maker friendly format has made editing so much easier and ...

Re: Upload video on youtube 10/31/2011 1:46:22 PM   (Total replies: 1)
If you have a WMV of your final movie, go to the youtube website and upload your WMV from there instead of trying to upload it from WLMM. There might be something screwy going on for you with WLMM and just going to youtube can work when you have problems with WLMM.

You might try posting a question on the <a href="http://windowslivehelp.com/">Windows Live Solution Center"</a>. MS support does monitor those forums and might be able to help.

Are you uploading in WLMM or are you saving your movie first and then uploading it through the YouTube website?

Re: Windows Movie Maker cannot save the movie to the specified location? 7/28/2011 2:31:11 PM   (Total replies: 1)
Remove the MP3 and see if you can save the movie. If so, convert the MP3 to WMA and use that in the movie.

Opps, I just realized you hijacked another thread. What file formats are you using? WMV files work best for video and WMA or WAV work best for audio.

Convert the MP3 file to a WMA audio file. Freemake makes a good freeware audio converter. Be careful about what it tries to install.
