Add network videos and pictures to Windows Live Movie Maker
If you have a small hard drive, you probably don’t store all of your pictures and videos on it, but instead put it on a network drive. The only problem is, well, Windows Live Movie Maker doesn’t allow that. And I’m sure you don’t want to copy it over to your computer. So, thanks to the WithinWindows blog, I will show you how to add networked video to Windows Live Movie Maker.
Error you get for adding networked videos or pictures to Movie Maker
Now it’s time for the fun part: Getting those videos into Movie Maker. What your about to do is going to be really hard, but I’ll try to make it as easy as possible.
Next, click “Movie Maker” on the side of the window if you haven’t already, then right-click any blank spot, and choose “New” > “DWORD Value (your computer type) Value”. If you don’t know what “bit” your computer is, just choose “32”. “64 bit” if you have more than 4GB of RAM.
Have fun making movies!
