Since Freemake prevented the use of their older version 3, and version 4* does not work as an editor, I've had to resort to WLMM 2012, and it cannot play/edit/save the following:
I download live wildlife cams with Jaksta Media Recorder. Whether they are saved in flv or mp4, WLMM cannot handle them (sometimes I can get a pixellated view). I have tried installing K-Lite Codec, both the full and basic versions, but that's made no difference.
I realise that WLMM is no longer supported by Microsoft, but does anyone know if there's a fix? I understand that WLMM 2012 will not take plug-ins but that 6 did, however it looks as tho that version will handle only a couple of formats, like wmv, which is no good to me.
*Since they've been selling "packs" for various features of version 4, it's stopped working altogether! I was using version 3 to scan very long files, extract and join clips with fade transitions - it was brilliant, now I'm stymied.

No I haven't googled for converters, TreeTops, because that's not what I need - it would take far too long to convert first (it's not unusual for my downloaded streams to be 10 hours long), it needs to be handled by the editor, which is what Freemake used to do.
Eek I've updated my computer details, years out-of-date:
DELL XPS 9560 with 3840x2160 display
I've tried many editors, too many to remember. Problems with most of them are (1) I can't understand them (probably AdobePremiere fell in that category, I did try it a couple of years ago), (2) they do not provide a large/clear enough preview for me to pick out details, (3) they cannot scan smoothly but skip along long files. Also, every time I install a program I have to shut everything else down, including streams that I am downloading 24/7 with Jaksta.
I've bought Machete and Bandicut, neither can cope. How "ironic" (wrong word, I know) that free programs can do what they can't.
I think it was Wondershare that said they couldn't do what I needed, after I queried when trial failed.
Brorsoft opens up so tiny on my QHD screen that I can't read it so can't even try it out. DaVinciResolve and HitFilm were no good for me.
WMM is adequate for screen-captures, which I do with Bandicam and Debut in continuous one-hour clips, but it cannot handle Jaksta downloads. I am therefore surrounded by laptops, all using bandwidth and electricity, all having to accommodate WinUpdates and glitches and the disruptions they entail, when Jaksta can download many streams on one laptop... if only I could edit them!

It's not called "Story Remix", apparently, but is part of Photos, which only shows pictures that are in Libraries or OneDrive You can't call up a video from any folder on your hard drive, you have to import folders into a Library and I do not want data files cluttering up my C drive. It seems to be very far from a replacement for WMM. Do have a look, maybe you can enlighten me?
TreeTops - I do have Tipard Video Converter, which, years ago, used to make difficult VLC files much easier to navigate, but WMM doesn't like its files even tho they're mp4 It's not something I could use as routine, however good it may be, as it takes too long to convert.
It is part of photos, but it is at least code name Story Remix.
There are I think enough tutorials on youtube... I will not spend time to watch them, I'm satisfied with kdenlive, bue I saw some, and it is very easy and straight forward.
