WMP plays mp4s but Win DVD Maker won't import them RRS feed

  • Question

  • I made some mp4 movie files on my new Ubuntu 9.04 Studio box using the Flash Video Resources Downloader FireFox pluging to capture videos off YouTube.  Works great!  But the Brasero Linux burner failed to properly burn a DVD to play in a DVD player on my USB connected burner, so I went searching for a Win solution.  Tried to play the mp4s on XP WMP 9, not recognized. My Nero wouldn't import them either (maybe it wanted money).  Win 7 did play them but the Win 7 DVD Maker choked.  I figured wrong that if one Win 7 product handles them, then another would too.  For that matter, if MS left Mail out of Win 7 due to anti-trust issues, why is WMP still here?  Strange stuff.

  • jrfnet,

    Actually, I'm unable to open them as well, leading me to believe that .mp4 and .m4a files are not currently supported in Windows DVD Maker.

    Microsoft's new free mail client is distributed as part of the Windows Live pack .
