FAQs about editing videos on Windows
Windows 7, Windows 10, Windows 11, even Windows Vista! Unlike the Windows Movie Maker software, WeVideo does not require any app. All you need is an internet connection, which means you can do your video editing from any device, Microsoft-based or not. (Yep, even Macs are fair game here!)
No, Microsoft has discontinued Windows Movie Maker, which was a built-in video editing software available with Windows Essentials 2012.
You can still find websites offering a free download of Movie Maker, but Microsoft warns that these sites are not legitimate and instead recommends creating movies in the Photos App of Windows 10. Of course, the best Windows Movie Maker alternative we'd suggest is WeVideo!
WeVideo gives you all the editing tools to tell your story, whether you're making a Hollywood-style blockbuster or an internal comms presentation for your boss. You don't need to download the Movie Maker app or worry about updating clunky software.
Just hop into our video editor from your browser and make the magic happen. All video editing projects save automatically to our secure cloud, and depending on your plan, you can seamlessly collaborate with other users, too. Visual effects, motion titles, background music, scene transitions, voiceover — all are built in and very easy to use.
Our video editor supports the following audio files: AIF, MP3, M4A, OGG, WAV, and WMA. We also support the following video files: 3GP, 3GPP, AVI, DIVX, DV, FLV, M4V, MJPEG, MKV, MOD, MOV, MP4, MPEG, MPG, M2TS, MTS, MXF, OGV, WEBM, and WMV.
You can upload any of these files from your Windows device to start your project.
Yes! The free version of our video editor gives you all the same professional-quality editing features including voiceover, green screen, motion tiles, slo-mo, multi-track editing, and more. Please keep in mind that our free video editor does include a few limitations, like limited video publishing time and a WeVideo watermark on exported files.
To create a video without a watermark and without limitations (on Windows 10, 11, you name it), upgrade from the free version to one of our paid plans. You can always start with a free trial to give it a go!
