Windows Movie Maker Won't Publish My Videos Correctly!

Hey guys. Anyways I'm publishing a 15 Minute-long video and movie maker plays through it fine, but after it's published and I watch the video file it freezes at the same picture (the media player doesn't freeze, it continues playing through, the video just came out wrong) and all audio stops, then the screen blacks out entirely for the remainder of the video. Does anyone have a solution to this? I'd really appreciate any and all help. Thank you

Hi Mike Vargas27,


1) Did you try publishing another file to check if the issue is with that particular file or to do with the Windows Movie Maker?
2) What is the format of the file, from which you are trying to publish a movie?
3) Do you remember making any changes to the computer prior the issue?
Refer the method mentioned below and check if it helps.
