Hey, I'm really confused and have googled for hours on a solution but I'm so tired I decided to just make a post on it hoping somebody would help me.
I was asking one of my friends and they recommended this place for me, so here I am.
The problem seems to be with my .avi videos when I put them on Windows Movie Maker. They're videos i spend days downloading for an AMV that I downloaded from Vuze recently, and they seem to work fine with anything apart from WMM and Windows DVD Maker (But windows DVD maker is a diff issue anyway that I wont address here).
I've tried all sorts of things. I unticked "AVI DVD Compressor" because when I left it ticked, whenever I tried moving .AVI vids to the timeline it would just say "Windows Movie Maker Has Stopped Working" and close the whole thing. But unticking it got me atleast somewhere, but now I face yet another problem.
When I try to play my videos (timelines or not), the audio only comes and the video is replaced with a transfixed black screen. I've tried all sorts of codecs and what not, and I'm totally lost now. I dont know what's wrong, but was wondering if anyone could help me.
Im not too good with Compressors, Decompressors and Codecs and what have you, but given the instructions I'm good at following them, and hope to be able to make videos properly soon with my .avi videos.
Oh, and I dont want to convert them because that just makes the quality worse, as .AVI videos give the best playback quality for me.
