The following videos are a 9 part series on how to use Windows Live Movie Maker. Live Movie Maker is a proprietary video editing software application which allows Windows operating system users to edit their own videos. This version of Movie Maker is compatible with Windows 7 or more recent operating systems. It is not compatible with earlier versions of Windows OS like Windows XP.

There are nine videos in this series although you can only see one player. The single player hosts all nine videos (thank you YouTube playlist). The series starts with Part 1: General Overview. To access the other eight videos, you must click on the text that says “Playlist” located at the top left of the player. You can then choose from the selection of other videos.

Note: This video educast series covers the later version of Windows Movie Maker, not the earliest version. If you are interested in learning the first version that comes with Windows XP and earlier Windows operating systems, click here.
