I realize Movie Maker is considered a crummy program, for all the glitches. I've started looking for something else. In the meantime, I haven't been able to finish a half-done project because about half the time, the program won't start. I just get "... has encountered an error and needs to close". I've discovered that when that glitches, so does Media Player. Same message. I can shut off the computer & come back another day, & it works. Or, once, I just went online & did some other things, then came back to it and it did open. But you could flip a coin, whether it's going to start.
Does anybody know what causes Media Player to seize up at the same time?
And is there something free with similar features to Movie Maker, that is considered a good program? Don't need anything too fancy -- just for little amateur slide shows & videos. I've seen "ezvid" recommended -- is it ok?
