|I have a post here as well:|
Other programs mentioned, along with my current problems with WMM (Vista SP2) and a codec pack conflict. If you care to read, the link is there.
The current situation I am at is this:
Whatever the updated codecs did, Movie Maker crashes while it is loading dozens of Haali Media Splitter icons in the task tray. Whoa! I uninstalled the codecs (OS still seems stable) and found a copy (took hours) of WMM 6.0 to reload. Still crashes. I then found an updated version bundled with Windows Live Essentials. It does not use networked files, go figure.
I have since tried a couple of other programs.
Avidemux, but it is not seem to be a movie maker but just a simple, single video editor.
VirtualDub, but it seems to be just for making screen presentations.
Anything else is either not a movie maker, handles like WMM (using videos and images, titles, etc), or quite outdated.
Some programs am going to try, as long as they are not outdated for more than two years and are full, fledged freebies:
VideoSpin by Pinnacle
Christian; warrior; GSPer; Borg; ninja; Time Lord... I am that hero! La resistenza è, ed è stato sempre, inutile.
I reply as fast as I can but could be hours or months.
