I have the 2011V. of Windows Live Movie Maker install on Window 7 Pro.  My camera produces .wmv video.  After editing with Movie Maker, it will only allow me to save in .wmv format.  There should be other options like MP3, etc.   How can I get the program to save in other formats?  Perhaps remove it and re-install?

Hello SFB.  No need to reinstall it.  Only being able to save in .wmv format is not a bug, it is just what MovieMaker does.  If you need it in other formats you can use a converter/encoder.  I use Adobe Media Encoder, but if you aren't looking to pay for such a service I can recommend a free converter HERE, all you need is the free version.  I can verify that it is malware free :)

It is called Any Video Converter and works very well, fairly close to the more expensive Adobe software.

Your problem is easy to solve with a free video converter which can extract audio and convert to MP3. Try to find one that charges you nothing.
