• Windows Live Movie Maker is being silly.

"Movie maker is shit" aside, I've been using it for a while and it more or less does everything I need with my video editing, I've been recording games with MSI Afterburner's video capture feature and it's been working great, Records all my games and I can put the video files straight into WMM without a problem. That is, except for one game called Starforge, When I put the video captured with MSI Afterburner into WMM it get this: [img]http://i.imgur.com/lobOZ.png[/img] and the entirety of the video is an error. I've tried many games after I've been getting this problem to see if it was a problem with MSI Afterburner but all of those videos go right into WMM without a problem, Starforge is the only one that seems to be giving me issues. Naturally i'm not looking for "don't use WMM" cause, If I could get Sony Vegas I would.
Is playback of the video still fine (in Windows Media Player or VLC if you have it)?
Yep! Plays peachy keen when I just play the raw video file, and I've tried re-rercording it many times and it always works with Media player but as soon as I throw it into WMM I get that error above.

If you've used .avi in the past, then I don't know why it decided to fuck up out of nowhere.

Worked like a charm! Thanks, still pretty odd that WMM selectively picks what game's AVI files it doesn't want to recognize.

The older versions of WMM included with XP (post-SP2) and Vista are extremely useful for making quick videos or videos that require little editing, but it's a shame that Microsoft decided to dumb it down and not include it with Win7.
