This can just be a glitch in finalizing the video , that's why its working when you try to play on your computer so what will be the best thing to try here is to try burning again a new video and make sure you everything will be finalized.....

Hi,

A couple of ideas to start off:
the video taken by the Canon HF10 was viewable during playback both on the camera and on the computer;
there were no error messages when movie maker was run;
the DVD was finalized in the PC prior to being played on the home DVD player.

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi additional information:


    • If you are using Windows XP, then in File>Publish Movie, options are only 'This Computer', 'Recordable CD', 'E-Mail', and 'Digital Video Camera' but no DVD;

    • If you are using Vista then you should have Windows DVD Maker;

    • Windows Movie Maker doesn't create the DVD;

    • Moviemaker calls on DVD Maker to burn the DVD;

    • and it also depends on the version of Vista, if Basic no go;

    • if Premium yes, DVD Maker is included.



  • Louie  Role

    and of course the simplest would be to save the completed/edited video first in your computer and use another program to convert and burn them to a finalized DVD such as Nero.

  • Louie  Role
    Louie Role Oct 20, 2008

    if the completed/edited video is being saved as an .mswmm, then it is being save as a Microsoft Windows MovieMaker file, not as or into a DVD. Please try the following steps to add your Windows Movie Maker project file to your DVD:



    • In Windows Movie Maker, save your Windows Movie Maker project file (which


    • has a .mswmm file name extension).


    • Close Windows Movie Maker.


    • Start Windows DVD Maker.


    • In Windows DVD Maker, click Add Items.


    • Locate and select the Windows Movie Maker project file (.mswmm), and then


    • click Add.


    • Verify that the Windows Movie Maker project file gets added to the DVD.
    Again, for the disc to be viewable in a standalone DVD player, it must be finalized (Finish, nothing more to be written/edited). The finalizing could take a very long time. Pls reference these additional insights.

    Cheers.

I just used Windows Movie Maker to convert my .avi movie files from my Nokia onto a DVD. WMM burned the files succesfully and the DVD plays fine on my computer's DVD burner, but WMM is supposed to finalize...


Movie Maker is NOT the software you want for this process :D I tried a few years back as did my friend but it didn't work. Movie maker is ver basic and designed to teach children basic slideshow/video techniques. Try installing the free trial of Corel Video Studio Pro x3, this can make propper dvds, and also makes your files HD.

I just burn a writeable cd from my desktop pc using windowa movie maker. I can play it back on my pc no problem but when I insert it into my dvd player it reads no supported files found.windows used high...


Computers use video files such as AVI, WMV, MPG etc.

DVD players use VOB video files, and will not recognise the computer video files.

Unfortunately, Windows Moive Maker cannot create VOB files - you will need another piece of software to convert the WMV file Windows Movie Maker creates to a VOB.

A lot of disc burning programs (e.g. Nero) include video converters. See if you've already got one on you computer.

If not, try Googling 'WMV to VOB'. There's quite a few free ones out there.

Hope this helps,

Matt

WILL NOT PLAY IRON MAN OR KINGDGOM OF HE CRYSTAL SKULL, BUT IT PLAYS ALL OTHER BLU-RAY DISKS


Go to the wed site and download the latest Firmware update to your computer. It downloads as an image file. The use a disc burning software like Nero or Cyberlink's Power2Go and go to "Burn Image to Disc" and burn it on a regular CD-R. Insert that to your player after turning it on and let it do its thing, it will take a while so don't power down thinking it froze or it will mess up your player.
After the update is done, your player will re-start. You should now be able to watch the latest movies.
Be Warned! Even newer movies might have issues playing. That's normal, just give time for the manufacturer to release an even newer Firmware update to play them. Just one of the things we have to live with for the sake of 1080P.
