    I shot some photos and video on my phone that I'm wanting to make into a movie, but it seems the video I took with my Windows phone is not compatible with Windows Live Movie Maker? Doesn't seem to make much sense to me, but when I try and play the video in the preview pane it's just blank, therefor I can't make any edits. I presume I need to convert the files? Has anybody else run across this before?

    WMM isn't much of a program and WMP isn't much of a player. Try VLC for playback. If that doesn't work, then MediaInfo to see what format the videos really are.

    For editing, it depends on what format the videos are.

    WMM may not be much, but it's what I've got. VLC plays the videos fine. The Nokia 521 takes 720P MP4 video @ 29FPS.

    The audio stream is AAC, but from what I've read, WMM should be compatible with this file type.

    Ah, I fixed it. I was running Essentials 2011 and upgraded to 2012 and the videos are working now. I guess all the information I found was about 2012. Thanks for the help.
