I use movie maker on my Win XP desktop and movies came out very well. I got a new HD cam corder that requires a 1394 connection (tried to install on XP, but still not recognized)and I use the movie maker that came with my vista lap top. I want to use a 320x240 instead of 640x480, but the video loses clarity (didn't on the desktop) when I use the laptop moviue maker. The designations from the desktop version of movie maker are different from my laptop.

I tried saving the file as a project on the laptop and working with it on my desktop, but I get an compatibility error message.

Any suggestions on how to make a smaller version of the movie without losing clarity?

I am interested in having a movie that plays well and doesn't look youtubish with poor quality, but at the same time make it a compact file so that it doesn't take long to play in the browser.

I didn't have this problem before when I was shooting video from my digital camera that has a movie function.

Do you mean the version numbers? If so, can you let us know what they are?

I had that problem too. It took too long to download and didn't look crisp so I made a Flash video instead.
