Windows movie maker? - April 22nd 2011, 03:07 PM

For business tech I have to use windows movie maker and I spent 3 days working on my movie at home and it was pretty much done and it looked amazing. When I went to open it on the schools computer it wouldn't open because I forgot they have windows xp and I have windows 7. If I download windows movie maker for xp on my computer would it still work even though I have windows 7?

Cannot you produce the video in WMV format or AVI format? Your school's computer should be able to play them.

And sorry, can't help you with your question. I have never used Windows Movie Maker; I don't even have it on my computer. Currently, in the free video editor world, Lightworks is king.

Since you have worked on it at home and are almost done with it, I would recommend publishing the movie, which can be found under "File." Once it is published, bear in mind that you will not be able to edit it any more. Keep the saved file on your home computer, but at least you will have the finished product.

I encountered this problem when I had to do this my junior year of high school. There was Windows XP at school, and I had Windows Vista at home. You would think Windows Media Player would allow you to save the file down, like every other program (Microsoft Word, Adobe Photoshop, ect), but it doesn't.

The best thing for you to do is to finish and publish the file at home, then you're done.

We're not suppose to publish it. We're going to put our movies on dvds. I downloaded the XP version on my pc. Now all I have to do is put the music in but when I do the song won't play when I preview the movie?
