Windows Movie Maker

  1. I want to use Windows Movie Maker to make a DVD home movie. My camera formats movies in mpeg2.ps. Movie Maker says to use NTSC. Then I want to burn to DVD using the Sony Multi-Function DVD Recorder.

    Does anyone have experience with this? Will I run into any problems that you know of?

    Thanks

    Yes, movie maker is great. But not a pro tool. It will do the job,, and use proper burning app,,, GL,,

    Depends where you live. If you live in the US then yes, NTSC is correct. Europe, use PAL. Of course if you have a dvd player that can play both then it doesn't matter.

    When I try to import video from "My Pictures", I get the message:

    The file C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\My Pictures\Camcorder\2008-04-24-2048-33\M2U00169.MPG cannot be imported because the codec required to play the file is not installed on your computer. If you have already tried to download and install the codec, close and restart Windows Movie Maker, and then try to import the file again.

    So I installed DivX. I still get the same message. What should I do Now?

    Thanks
