Re: Windows Movie Maker won't play clips.
Hello, I have the very same problem, so far my video is about 20 min long
with clips, and after my last clip i was trying to add more and when i add
them and hit play to preview it, it shows up all black. I open the file
manually and it views fine, i preview it in the import pane and it works
fine, but for some reason everything after my last working clip, when i add
it to the timeline it plays Black..anyone find the sollution to this problem,
im really trying to finish this video, please help =)
