    Windows 8 Brings Video Stabilization to Movie Maker

    Having recently removed the "Live" from the names of its free downloadable consumer apps, Windows Movie Maker and Windows Photo Gallery, Microsoft is making up for the loss by adding useful new features.

    The updated media-editing and organizing apps, which are part of Windows Essentials, work with Windows 7 and Windows 8. But they will see a bigger boost in Microsoft's new OS, Brad Weed, a group program manager at Microsoft, wrote in a blog post.

    Actually, this is the BIG news I think: "Now, the default output file is an MP4 using the H.264 codec. This is a far more popular format than the WMV files that Movie Maker used to output."

    Wonder how they pull that off actually, does windows essential install a proper mpeg 4 codec? Or does that only work on Windows 7? Or maybe it makes mp4 files without transcoding so it doesn't need a codec?

    I'm still waiting for the aug 15th release before putting any more time into Win8 at this point. But if this software opens the standard digital camcorder format files (DV HDV AVCHD etc) and outputs actual mpeg 4 that'll actually be worthy of an "awesome".
