Win10 media player will not make a DVD from Movie Maker. What program can I use to make a DVD that can be played on a DVD player?

Hi John,

 

Movie Maker was a part of Windows Live Essentials, and was officially removed for download on January 10, 2017, Movie Maker is replaced by Story Remix (which arrived in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.)

 

If you have saved a video previously created with Movie Maker you can use Windows Media Player to burn a DVD. Open Windows Media Player -> click the "Burn" tab -> Click and drag your movie file from its save location to the burn list -> Click the Burn Options drop-down and change the burn profile from "Audio CD" to "Data CD or DVD."  -> Insert a blank DVD into your DVD drive. Click the "Start Burn" button in Windows Media Player to initiate the burn.

I hope this helps.

Although Windows Live Essentials has been pulled from the Microsoft site, I archived it very shortly before that happened on my Google Drive because a number of my visually impaired and blind clients need to have Windows Live Mail, which is part of the package.  So is Movie Maker.  I can't remember all the programs that are, but you can pick and choose to install only those that you want.

 

If anyone wants it feel free to download the full installer package (not the web stub) for Windows Live Essentials from my Google Drive.  It's in ZIP format.

Hi Brian, recently I found the WLive Essential download, did so and it was not a success for me in Windows 10, It messed with my files? I needed Movie Maker to sort out a .mov video I have. I ended up uninstalling it via Revo. No recent glitches for any of your clients?

The only thing I've been installing myself is Windows Live Mail, and it works perfectly under Windows 10 just like it does under earlier versions of Windows.

 

The Windows Live Essentials that I have archived was the last version:  2012.

 

I cannot speak to what any of the other programs may or may not do.  That being said, I have yet to encounter a single "old program" that I do still use that hasn't installed and run just fine under Windows 10, and I've got some stuff that dates back to XP (but not much - which reminds me I need to get the ancient version of MS Photo Editor that was part of MS-Office on this machine.  It's the best thing I've ever used for creating transparency in backgrounds with maximum ease).

Bummer for me, however it's great news about your continued WLE success, there are so many folks missing some or all of the features! 

 

You could burn a DVD in Movie Maker using Windows DVD Maker. Unfortunately Windows DVD Movie Maker is no longer supported in Windows 10.

 

If @john still has Movie Maker, the dilemma about his inability to burn a DVD exists. If the steps I have provided above using Windows Media do not work, we'll need further information from him as to the nature of his files and the file type they have been saved as. 

 

Your thoughts?

My favorite utility for burning to optical disc, regardless of what it is I may be needing to burn to it, is Anyburn.  It can handle Blu-ray and even create bootable USB drives.  The interface is about as clean and simple as they come and it's free.
