Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have just purchased a PHP F/Line HEPC8512. The Microsoft Movie maker installed does not work! Any attempt to drag and drop imported video results in "COM Surrogate has a problem" and program closes. Microsoft Support refers solution to you as manufacturer.

Here is a list of requirements for the Microsoft movie maker to work:
Required Equipment:
• MiniDV digital video camera
• MiniDV tapes
• Computer that supports a digital video connection
• Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 2, which includes Movie Maker 2.1
• i.Link port (also known as FireWire or IEEE 1394) on your computer
The service Pack 2 is essential in this case and not to be confused with Service Pack 3.

After you meet these requirements, follow this set of instructions to work the Movie Maker 2.1
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/moviemaker/getstarted/movies.mspx

Let me know if you have any problems.

How to make a slideshow in youtube ?


Hi there,
follow these simple steps to make the video and successfully upload it to youtube:

-open windows movie maker
-press 'import audio/video'
-import the song you want to use
-drag it to the time line
-press 'import pictures'
-import the pictures you want to include in the slideshow
-drag them to the time line in the order you want them to be in
(this next bit is important in getting it to work in an accepted video format)
- when you have finished and want to save it, you must press 'PUBLISH MOVIE' at the top of the screen near the middle
-then press 'PUBLISH TO THIS COMPUTER'
-name the video
-save

now it will save to your video folder and will also convert to a WMV format which is accepted by youtube,and most websites, it is also one of the most commonly used so it works easy

after the video has finished converting and saving do the following

-open youtube
-sign in
-press upload
-fill in the video info
-upload the video

now wait on the upload screen until it says 'upload successful, the video will be available from 'my videos' once it has finished processing'

Please follow the steps above and if still problem persist please lets us know

I have a video of a sailing ship entering harbour. The sound is not very good and I would like to change this to a suitable musical track.


If you have a PC with windows movie maker installed export your footage via USB2 into your video folder on PC then drag & drop or import your video into movie maker.Rip a CD music track in media player & drag & drop or import into movie maker.
turn down volume of original sound & replace with new soundtrack then publish the movie in format of your choice.
If you get stuck read movie makers help folder.

Re: Windows Movie Maker. When drop n drag picture is brought to the timeline, OK. But, when music is added to the Audio line, the system shuts down with a message: Windows Movie Maker has stopped working....


It is possible that the movie maker is unable to do that task assigned because of the size of the video and audio file. can you try a small file first and see if they will work. a short video and audio clip less than a min. should do
