Honestly you should just try something newer from this list instead. There are plenty of free options and YouTube is a great resource for getting started with most of them. While we do have this sub-forum for WMM support, it's kind of a legacy thing at this point.

This is the version I have (I'm on Windows 7, but this is the older WMM) and it "just works".

You can also get the "official" installer (which is much larger because it's the bundle of all windows live stuff) here, if you don't trust my link:

The problem you're going to have is that WMM has not been updated since 2012, and I did a few test imports... It will not accept mp4 files.
You'd have to convert everything to another format first. I did a quick test of utvideo and WMM seems to be okay with that.

I'd second what meatwad said though, definitely try looking into other things.
