    I am trying to save my Windows Movie Maker project to a Movie File and it has been saving my movie file since last night with over 1 MILLION minutes remaining at 0% completed. Does this ever actually get to a point where it will start to save it or should I cancel out and then select a different type of file to save other then the recommended "best for computer playback" option. Please help!!!!

    I don't know what's wrong with it. All I know is,, it's NOT normal that the remianing time is 1 million minutes over night. No! I'd def. cancel it once. Then, I'd save the project, restart the comp, open the saved project, and give just one more try with the same output setting, but I'd only wait for 30 seconds to 1 minute at longest to see if the remainig time starts going down. If that doesn't work, i'd cancel, and change the output setting. maybe you don't have a codec necessary to encode whatever output format you chose. If you change the output, then, it may work..

    That must be one HEY LONG MOVIE you got there. 1 million minutes over night isn't equal to each other. 1 million minutes isn't near the 1440 minutes we run in a 24 hour period. So I figure the movie would be saved sometime next June. (Just kidding.) nyc is right. Try it again. Jazz
