I have prepared a home movie on Windows Movie Maker and when I copied it to a DVD it would not play on a dvd player can anyone tell me what I did wrong please thanks joe


The reason why the DVD disk you created may not contain the file format the DVD player recognizes. On a normal DVD disk there are two folders - AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders. The video files are located in the VIDEO_TS folder. This video folder contains the VTS_xxx.vob video files (the video files has a .vob extension).
The video file you created may have a avi or wmv or mov or mpg extension, whilst these video files can be played on a computer but they won't play on a DVD player.
Check the movie software you are using and make sure it creates the correct file format for a DVD player.

I cant watch videos on my computer no more why?


do you have video software installed ? Real Player, Jet Audio, Windows Media Player .......etc

make sure you have them and if you're trying to play a move, look at the extension ( Name.WMV) .WMV is for windows media video, which works on windows media player. you have to have the right program to play the video you want depending on the extension.

I have Jet Audio, its a very good program that can play many types of movies. you just go to preferences ---> file type associations ---> then check all and it will play almost any video or audio file you have. without needing to download all other software. One For All

I believe the movie is bait for a fly-by Trojan installer or scam.
Delete the file using the command prompt and scan your machine for malware !!!!

Use SEVERAL reputable anti-virus products, such as:

AVG, KASPERSKY, McAfee, SpyBot SD, Adaware
f-protect, black-light, rootkit revealer....

The WEB site was recently created and then removed by
some **** in Germany.

You need to be extremely careful when downloading movies,
because most movie formats contain facilities for WEB links
and active Java scripts, which can contain dangerous malware,
or links to a daisy chain of evil websites that will in turn install
malware on you computer, if you are not EXTREMELLY careful.


Media files, such as AVI, MPG and WMV can also contain
code which will crash or even damage windows explorer as
soon as you click on the movie file, even without launching
the movie.

This is because Windows Explorer uses two DLL files:
shmedia.DLL and shimgvw.DLL which scan every media file
you touch in order to create preview thumbnails.

A carefully crafted media file will cause buffer overflow and
crash Windows Explorer.

These files are even extremely difficult to remove,
because windows will crash every time you touch them.

Don't use Internet explorer (any version) and use Firefox
instead. Disable scripts, except for trusted websites.

Download and Install Firefox addons to block scripts,
such as "No script" by Giorgio Maone.

This utility will prompt you to accept or reject scripts
when you are browsing.

Avoid *.wmv media files, they almost alway contain WEB
links as bait.

Be careful where AVI and MPG files come from.

Be suspicious of unreasonably small files, that come from
large numbers of peer to peer sources and download very
quickly. SCAM companies have the fastest servers on
peer to peer networks.

Scan EVERY downloaded file for malware.

Hopefully this will make you safer.

Publish and save your Windows Movie Maker movie to your computer


As most of you know, I make computer video tutorials and post them to Youtube for everyone to learn about computers. I do not use anything fancy or even expensive, in fact I use the free Camstudio program to record the tutorial and Windows Movie Maker to edit it... Windows movie make comes with most versions of Windows. In this tutorial I will show you how save and publish your windows movie maker production to your computer. This way you can watch it anytime you like, email it to friends, or upload it to Youtube.

What do you need to save a movie to your computer?

* You will need to have Windows Movie Maker on your computer. If you have a normal version of Windows then you will have Windows Movie Maker installed as well, however some versions do not have it. For example Windows Seven Ultimate doesn't have it.
* You will need a finished movie ready to save. You might have used Camstudio or even a video camera to record it.
* You will need storage space to save the movie to. If you save your movie as an .avi then it will take up twice as much space as a movie saved as .wmv. I usually save my movies as a .wmv as Youtube happily takes this format.

How to Publish my movie to save it on my computer?

When using Windows Movie Maker instead of saying save movie, this program uses the term "publish movie". Therefore we will publish the movie to the computer. This will save the finished movie file to play at a later date.

In this tutorial I will presume that you have finished editing your movie and now want to save it onto your computer.

1. In the tasks menu on the left side, when you have your program open, there is a menu. If you do not see this menu, press on File at the top and choose publish from the drop down menu.
2. If you do see the menu, go to the Publish section.
3. Click on "This computer". See the screenshot below.
4. A Publish movie dialog box will appear.
5. Fill in your movie name.
6. Press on browse to choose where to save your movie on your computer. See screenshot below.
7. Then press the next button.
8. The next window will appear.
9. Choose what setting you want your movie to be. If you choose the top choice, Best quality for playback then your movie will be an AVI and will be bigger in size and need more storage space. See below.
10. If you choose the more settings choice, you can choose more options.
11. See below, if you click the drop down arrow you can see the choices.
12. I usually choose "Windows Media DVD Quality (PAL) (3.0 Mbps)"
13. Down below it will show you the exact details of what your movie will be.
14. Now when you are ready you can press on the publish button and the movie will be converted and saved to your computer.
