Movie Maker

Recommended Posts

A colleague of mine would like help with how to convert a Windows Movie Maker file (msmmf is the file extension) to some thing like an mpeg (movie) file. Does anyone know?

For what it's worth, I use Quick Time for much of my video work. Quick Time Pro - which does cost about $30 USD - will convert one format into another, though I don't know if it will do what your friend wants. Quick Time (*.mov) has been a movie standard for some time; many of the educational videos I use in my classes are in that format. Graham's advice is great - I'm going to check out those sites myself because I've run into a problem with *.wma files on my web site - they won't play even on Windows machines without a great deal of trouble.

Just checked out Quick Time Pro - it imports a large variety of formats, including some Windows formats, but the format you listed isn't one of them. So, I don't think this is an option for you.

A Windows Movie Maker project file has the extension you are talking about, I believe. It is not a video file in and of itself, merely telling the program which sections of video are used in the project and which transitions, etc. have been used. To convert it into a proper movie file, you need to go to 'File' then 'Save as Movie'... :D
