Fraps and Windows Live Movie Maker 2011

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
A couple weeks ago I was able to import some Fraps footage of games in WMM. I was then easily able to upload to YouTube at 1080p.

Now I'm trying to import some new Fraps footage, but the Fraps files once imported show as black boxes, as if the codec wasn't found. If I open the Fraps files in VLC they play fine. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling WMM and Fraps, but to no avail. I haven't changed any settings, I'm capturing videos in Fraps at half-size 30 FPS.

What do you think? For now I'm using VLC to convert to H.264 MP4 and import that in WMM, but it's an extra step that I didn't have to take before.

(I realize WMM isn't the premiere application for video editing or encoding, but it's good enough for what I need and its export of 720p and 1080p on YouTube isn't bad)

Software has very limited support for file formats. Even if you have codecs installed and can get files to play correctly in Windows Media Player, Live 2011 still won't accept them.

I know because I tried to import a FLAC file just yesterday.
