According to my own experience importing H.264/MPEG-4 AVC files into Windows Movie Maker, I often run into the same issue like half-way stop due to the format input restriction of this software. Or worse, Windows Movie maker sometimes fails in synchronizing video and audio. Windows XP Movie Maker only accepts video formats AVI, WMV, ASF. So, if you want to import unsupported files to Windows Movie Maker, you should use EarthSoft Video Converter software to help you.

Professional movie makers make movies using a specific procedure. You can follow the same procedure when you are going to make your own movie.
  • Import a video, photos and music for your movie in Movie Maker.
  • Remove some parts, which you don't want to use
  • Order the left material.
  • Add some perfect things such as videos, photos, titles, special effects, etc.
  • Publish the finished movie to DVD.
