MP3 Video Files Freeze Up In Windows Movie Maker

  1. Dec 26, 2008 #1
    Is there any way to fix this? I tried converting the mp3 files to wmv files last night, but it reduces the picture quality by a lot so the picture quality looks all fuzzy. Is there any other free video editing software out there that supports mp3 video files?

    MPEG Layer 3 only supports audio frames. Do you mean you have an AVI container with an MP3 soundtrack and some type of video track? If so, what is the compression on the video track?
    Try using VirtualDub in combination with AVISynth. If anything, AVISynth should allow you to convert your video file to uncompressed AVI.

    While I like VirtualDub and AVISynth for editing video,
    ...for converting video, you might be happy with WinFF, which is a front-end to ffmpeg.

    Try updating your video drivers and any Window updates. Then clear all your temp files.
