Touching Effects Shuts Down WMM

For help and discussion concerning the Windows Movie Maker software.

Postby Krisqo » Fri Aug 22, 2008 9:22 pm

WMM is a fudgey program. You import something, it can crash. You touch a button, it can crash. Hell, you look at it wrong, it can crash. Maybe your computer is having trouble running it? All the PCs I've used from old as dirt to new as hell have all had problems running WMM. Sure it would run sometimes, but then it would crash for no reason. I still wonder why Microsoft continues to include it with it's operating systems.

about the only thing you can do to get WMM working again is to reinstall your OS. It sounds like that point in time...

You see, when an editor loves a computer very, very much...the editor wants to do things. The problem is that the computer can't always deliver the goods. So the editor and the computer sit down and talk about making "the purchase." Then some magical and wonderful (and some not so wonderful) things happen and before you know it, you have your very own editing program installed on your computer.

the list linked earlier has some free programs if you don't want to spend money on a program yet.

I've only just discovered thanks to your gspot program that I have many avi files with many different codecs.

Do you know where I could get a codec to see this file? THank you for your help !
Making an amv, is rather like being the director of a Broadway show, where you have a million dancers and each of them only knows one step.

blasted fansubbers...someone should shoot them for putting h.264 into avi...but that's beside the point

CCCP is pretty much your one-stop shop for video playback (sans the horrific softsub support ala VLC)

Installing it can cause a few problems, but if you go into the start menu folder for CCCP (after it's installed) and go through the 3 configuration things (1 for CCCP, 1 for ffdshow video and 1 for ffdshow audio, disable ffdshow for any codec that you already have) it shouldn't give you a problem.

No good. I had already tried CCCP, but at your suggestion dl'd the most recent version. It did make a few things watchable and importable, but I've just noticed there's no sound on these clips either. Tried dling a "vox audio codec" didn't know they made audio codecs, and still no joy. :( Maybe I need to dl the latest AMVapp? Anyone have a link to that?

^AMV App 3.0Beta

It will only help if you use the programs in the app to convert your files. It won't just make them work as is now.

Thank you for all your help so far, each codec unlocks more videos, so for now I just wanna focus on being able to play all my avi files. Next it says I need a DirectShow-compatible MPEG-2 decoder
