I am spending way to much time to fail at converting some quicktime video clips to a file format I can use in Windows Movie Maker. I exported the QT video clips using QT Pro 7 to the AVI file format. The converted clip plays in Windows Media Player just fine, but when I import it to WMM, there is only sound. What could I be doing wrong?

This is so frustrating. Thanks for any suggestions.

I use Super by Enright, it's free and will convert almost anything to anything. I have had it drop the audio when I've mucked up the settings, always kept the video though. I have always been successful in getting the setting right and getting a good conversion though on second tries.

Perhaps letting the group know what you are using would help, maybe somebody else uses the program and can guide you through.

@Mike: Errr..ummm.... pretty sure that's what Laura meant by "QT 7 Pro" and "WMM" (Windows Movie Maker).... at least, that's how I read the original post.

@Laura: How large are the clips you are working with?  What recorder are you using?  Can it be connected directly to the PC to skip over the QT 7 Pro Step?  If it is a device/recorder that Windows Movie Maker recognizes, you can use the "Capture from device" feature.

I'm pretty sure WMM doesn't recognize clips in quicktime format. Undecided

No it doesn't which is why I expect Laura was using Quicktime Pro to convert from QTime to AVI.   

Windows Movie Maker will capture directly from a recording device, which would allow leap frogging over that conversion step and any compatibility problems that might add to the mix.

I assumed she was recording in quicktime. I'm honestly not sure if that is even possible. I've not fooled with this stuff in quite a while so I'll defer to the experts here.

The current crop of cameras record to MP4, which Windows Movie Maker doesn't support.  Laura, if your computer runs Vista or Windows 7, you might try downloading the Windows Live Movie Maker, which I understand does support MP4.

I have the same problem since my camera only records video in quicktime, but I use Window Movie Maker to make my videos. I use a program called WinFF, to convert to a WMV file format. It is a free download, and I think there is some information about it on youtube. Good Luck!

You are probably missing the proper video codec. AVI files come in many different compression formats. The most common being Divx and xvid. They are both free to download. Hope this helps!!
