    Hello All,

    When I publish my movie and view for the first time only part of the video
    work. The audio is fine and plays through the whole movie. The first few
    minutes of the video works than it goes to a black screen.

    My timeline shows all the movie clips when I play it on the movie maker.
    All the clips I used were imported at the same time and they are from
    different home movie's, but as I said before they will play the first few
    minutes, but not at the end.

    I tried deleting all the files in the imported media section and than
    putting them back on. That didn't work. Only the same clips played when I
    published the movie.

    As I said the clips and all the transitions play when I view it on WMM, but
    its only when I publish it that it acts up. I don't know what to do. If
    someone could please help me I would REALLY appreciate it.

    You may have some incompatibility issues
    with your source files. Have a look at the
    following article:

    I am having the same issue. All my files are .avi which are supported,
    so why am I having this issue?

    My video is 7 minutes long and when i get to 2:40 it just stops playing
    the video portion. I can play each clip individually outside of windows
    movie maker. I have tried checking my video filters and that is not the
    issue. Can someone please help?

    There are many types of .avi files...DV-AVI
    is the one that is fully supported.

    The following free utility will help you identify
    the codec you need for your .avi file.
