Getting movie maker without virusing the crap out of me

Post by philip_hughes » Wed, 29. Nov 17, 08:40

Hey guys. Microsoft Movie maker is no longer officially available. Anyone got a safe site I can download it or a comparable alternative?

Thx,

Phil

If you have Windows 10, Microsoft claim that the built-in Photos app will allow you to create videos like Movie Maker did. I've never used it myself so I have no independent verification of that, though.

What do you need to do with it?

There's a few free video editing things. I have the files for movie maker but it's not the best program. The files are large and quality isn't the best for the file size. Handbrake?

Movie maker 2012

check out the sidebar on the right hand side there's info there

Windows 8 disk might have the files on it also.

If you run out of options you could edit it with youtube and dvr it (win+alt+r or win+g in windows 10) or download the youtube video.

Just a note: Vegas, multiple versions, is on sale on Steam right now.

Microsoft has "Movie Creator" available for free: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p ... blggh4wwjr

I'm not sure, but you can sometimes find old MS apps on Microsoft's site, buried somewhere just in case some dev still needs it. Though, MS took a pretty hard stance in gathering up its media apps after it killed Media Center.

There are tons of free video editing software packages out there. Two I know of are:

openshot

Hitman Express

Remember I don't do much editing and I have other stuff that I normally use, so I have only basically touched these. For both of them do a youtube search, there are plenty of tutorials showing how they work and how to use them, that will give you a better idea if you like them or not.

Yeah, I know, that's a low blow... I apologize to all the Mac users out there. I didn't mean to upset you while you were sipping your lattes and browsing through your turtleneck catalogs... :P ;)

Yeah, you really want to get a machine that ships with an OS which allows people to get admin access without requiring a password... :wink:

I doubt Trump would know what a Mac is. He'd probably think it's short for 'Big Mac'. :P

Actually believe it or not he doesn't use a computer or know how to use a computer, hard to believe but true. To keep it even, Clinton was/is the same. At the start of the year, he said that he doesn't trust computers.

Sorry for the derail, philip. We should probably get back on topic (as much as we can in Off-Topic :mrgreen: ).

Try typing "Movie Maker" into your Windows 10 search field (Cortana). It'll point you to the official Microsoft App Store where you can install it for free.

I get no results for movie maker on my computer, could be because I removed the App Store as I found they were selling stuff you get for free from official sites. :twisted:

Yes. The App Store is an App in itself. If you removed it, you can't install the App's within the store. I've never found cause to remove it because it never bugs me for anything and remains out of sight out of mind.
