    Help with Moviemaker

    Hi. I hope this is the right place to put this. I've made a recording of myself playing the piano and singing to upload to Youtube. They don't take audio files that I know of, so I had a single picture of myself playing a keyboard that I was going to put with the music so Youtube will accept it. The main focus is the music, but it has to be a video for Youtube, so I'm sticking in a picture.

    I decided to do this with Moviemaker. I did this on my Windows 7 computer a while bak and it worked but for some reason on 8 it's playing just a few chords of the song, and I can't figure out how to get the full song. I don't know if this would correct itself when I publish the movie or not. Also, I'm totally blind and use a screen reader, and all the stuf I'm finding on Google says to drag and drop a bunch of stuff into the storyboard, which you can't do with Jaws because it says nothing about a storyboard. Also everything online is telling how to add multiple pictures. I'm including the two files I tried to use as an attachment along with the disaster of a movie project hopefully, if vBulletin will allow me to send audio files. I appreciate everyone's help.

    Unfortunately I was unable to send the movie file, so that won't work. Sorry about that.

    You can upload your audio and pictures to skydrive then post the link and I will help you to create what ever you need, perhaps, a slide show with your music.

    Okay, I've got the files uploaded, but I'm not sure how to send you a link to my Skydrive stuff. Also, is there a way you could show me how to do this myself? I definitely appreciate the help, but I plan to make a lot of videos of myself playing, and I don't want to have to come back here for assistance every time I make a vid. Is there a way you could provide me with instructions using the keyboard and not the mouse? Thanks.
