Windows Movie Maker RRS feed

  • Question

  • MIcrosoft's Windows Movie Maker v2.0 (for XP) is one of the BES movie editing programs I have used. Yet the new v2.6 for Vista whihc is the ONLY version that works with Win7, lacks the SOURCE button as before. So using v2.6, one CANNOT capture videos/movies from external sources like cameras, video macjhines etc....     WHY ????

  • Hi EQ2000

    I don't think that installing Movie Maker 2.6 is supported in Windows 7.

    The version designed for Windows 7 is Movie Maker Live.

    You can get more information at the following links.

    Windows Live Essentials

    Hope this helps.


    Thank You for testing Windows 7 Beta

  • Movie Maker 2.6 works w/ Windows 7 or you can go for Windows Live Essentials.
