Hi maduck,

Well, our products as advertised will only output MPEG4 if any kind of MP4 output profile is selected, however considering the mentioned info from bellow you could try choosing XVID or WMV output profile in order to be able to use Windows Movie Maker on the exported files.

Quoted


Supported formats for importing content
:
  • Video files: .asf, .avi, .wmv
  • Movie files: MPEG1, .mpeg, .mpg, .m1v, .mp2
  • Audio files: .wav, .snd, .au, .aif, .aifc, .aiff
  • Windows Media files: .asf, .wm, .wma, .wmv
  • Still images: .bmp, .jpg, .jpeg, .jpe, .jfif, .gif
  • MP3 format audio: .mp3

Although you can play a file in Microsoft Windows Media Player, you may not be able to import the file into Windows Movie Maker even though this article lists that kind of file. You may not be able to import the file if the codec that was used to encode the audio or video is not a codec that is included with Windows XP. In that case, you may be able to re-encode the video or audio by using Windows Media Encoder, and then import the video or audio.

Note The MPEG2 format has several codecs that are not supported by Windows Movie Maker. Even if you have downloaded and installed these codecs on your computer, files in the MPEG2 format may not work in Windows Movie Maker or may cause other problems. Converting the MPEG2 format to another compatible format may work for most MPEG2 files. However, some MPEG2 codecs include copy protection schemes that will prevent you from converting the file.


To download the Windows Media Encoder for free, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

  • Windows Media video files: .wmv
  • Windows Media audio files: .wma
  • DV/AVI format for video: .avi
Any success ?

If you want to convert movies for iPhone, just try Handbrake for free. It is pleasant to play iPhone videos wherever and whenever.
