Hi Brian Travinski, sorry for the late reply. Before you output the video, you can set the format first, and there are a lot of options, not only Windows Movie Maker. Please choose it on the right side of the program's window: Output Format.
Not having a good experience. When I go to "Save Movie" it gives me the option to save it for say a 'computer' or hi def' or a Zune device etc. The when I finally have the option to 'Save Movie' the Windows drop down doesn't give any option as for what type of format I can save in as. Just "Windows Movie Maker" Why isn't it giving me the options you mention in your solution?
THANK YOU! You saved my audition!
Thank you, this totally helped with my school project today!!

Hi Terri, To convert WLMP files to other formats, you have to use the Windows Live Movie Maker to save WLMP to WMV or MP4 format, and then import the WMV or MP4 files to the video converter to start the conversion. Please have a try. Any question, please feel free to contact us.
