Windows Movie Maker Installation
If your computer meets the system requirements, you can start the installation process. Run the wlsetup-web.exe file that you downloaded and the installation begins. After the setup starts, you will be presented with two options. You can choose to install the complete Windows Live Essentials or you can choose the programs you want to install.
As we are only interested in the Windows Live Movie Maker, we are going to choose second option for the Custom Install. On the next screen, you will be asked which of the Windows Live Essentials programs you want to install. Select Photo Gallery and Movie Maker.
Now press Install and let the installation process do its job. Upon completion, you will have to restart the system. Now that the system has rebooted you are all set. Go to Start and type "Movie Maker" into the search field. The program should appear within the search results. Start the program and enjoy all the new features within Windows Live Movie Maker 2011.
You can start editing your movies, adding themes and templates, sound tracks.
Taking a quick look at the new Movie Maker 2011 I could see a few nice features:
- Add a theme to your video
- Rotate video
- Record movies directly from your Web Camera
- Record movies from any external video device as Video Camera
- Network file support
- Full Screen Preview
- Added support for M4V, WTV, MOV, 3GP, AVCHD, MPEG-4, MT2, QT
The movies can be directly published from within the Movie Maker, to sites such as YouTube or Facebook. All in all, Windows Live Movie Maker 2011 is easy to install and setup, and has many new features that previous versions did not had.
