    Movie Maker & Viewing results


    Been experimenting with on board video in car via my phone, then making it in Windows Movie Maker. First point: when I switch to WMM screen goes blank, then comes back until I close WMM and screen blanks, then comes back on (using HMDI lead from pc to monitor).

    Second point is when file is saved in videos folder, I click on it to view and I get some damn awkward and intrusive X Box software advertising their game and no controls on video. Is this someone, eg: my daughter has put in, or it is a crafty part of windows. The first I can solve, if second, how to remove it???

    I haven't used WMM for quite some time, found freeware that works as well if not better. I think if you are online it does have ads now, I hate that. Seems even MS has gotten on the irritating bandwagon, the software is free if you're willing to put up with the annoying ads.
