Re: movie maker timeline problem
webcam: microsoft lifecam
software: the files automatically open with windows media player
file type: they were captured on my computer with the webcam and started at
wmv files so i did not have to convert them at all
the times timeline contains wmv files, titles and transitions that i added
in the editing process, and wav files that i captured using the mic built
into the webcam that i have. these files were also original wav files.
the problem isn't seeing things on the timeline. i am unable to play
anything on the timeline.
