I've recently filmed some movies on my digital camera, they're in 'Quicktime Movie' format, i've tried putting them into Windows Movie Maker to edit them and it wont let me import them.
Could you please advise me on either:
- A method of importing them into WMM
- Another program that I could use for it

All help is much appreciated,



EDIT: Problem solved. Thanks.

Hi Bates 999,

I didn’t notice your edit that said problem solved, so I will give you the info I got anyway incase you need it plus it will take this topic off the no reply list :) .

Windows movie maker CAN'T import quick time movies. You have to convert them to a format that will work in windows movie maker (.mpeg, .avi, etc).

Here is a nice walk through with a free converter Walk Through

After you convert the file, just upload it into WMM and you're good to go. :)
