Hi, I am trying to use Windows Live Movie Maker on Window 7, but the photos that I added never show, there's only a black screen. Sound plays OK but without showing any picture.

 

Any advice?

Hi!

Your video files may be in the wrong format for Windows Live Movie Maker, they need to be in wmv, avi, or mpg formats.

Some Kodak cameras use the mov format that Live Movie Maker does not support.

If your videos are not the correct format they can be converted to run in Live Movie Maker.

Thanks for the answer.

 

How can I convert the formats?

Here is a link to a very popular and free file convertor download.

If you decide to download this convertor just be sure to uncheck the options for any unwanted toolbars, etc. before you start.

Thanks, but the problem is not video files but photos. According to windows support page (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-live/movie-maker-file-types-faq)  Window Live Movie Maker should support jpg files, but it doesn't, at least in my PC.

Yes, it imports .jpg files without any problems;  I have version 2011 installed on Win 7, Home Premium, 64 bit. I can't see any repair options within WLMM. If you go to Control Panel, Programs and Features, click on Windows Live Essentials and Uninstall/Change, you should be given the option to repair all Windows Live programs.
