I got a problem with windows 8 movie maker crashing when i go to snip the video it says windows movie maker has stopped responding. and it say close out program. it did it ever since you updated windows 8 with 16 updates. is there a way to fix this? I really need this program bad. And I get mad at computer and smash them if they don't work. Im about fed up with Microsoft.

IMO K-lite codec pack is for experts knowing exactly what it does and why they need it. Repairing a broken Movie Maker is not the job of a 3rd party codec pack. Your suggestion to repair all windows live programs sounds far better -- I can't really judge it, because I use this tool under Windows 7, where it never stopped responding.
IMO K-lite codec pack is for experts knowing exactly what it does and why they need it.klite overwrite the windows codecs and take the precedence and installing this will help if something wrong with windows codecs which prevents movimaker from loading
still didn't work. i tried everything i give up it's just stupif that microsft can't keep one os. instead of messing it up. they should have just stay with xp i was happy with it. now all thi new crap never works. ill have to buy an apple i guess. i need to edit video for youtube and im loosing money thanks to microsoft.
Is there a solution to this issue? I have seen multiple complaints re application. Just purchased new laptop with Win 8 and now can not produce video's for my clients. I spent a week trying to work out what was going wrong - I thought it was my imported clips. I had to go back to my client and inform them I could not send the video to them because the clips were corrupted - Not impressed.
If you run the app as administrator it works fine in Windows 8
Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Photo Gallery
Right click on Moviemaker.exe and get properties. Under the settings select "Run This Program as an Administrator"
Select "Apply," then OK
It should run without crashing
