Portable Windows Movie Maker Resurrects Missing Features

Windows: If you’re using Vista or Windows 7 and miss some of the features and transitions that were in earlier versions of Windows Movie Maker, this portable version brings them back.

Windows Movie Maker has changed with each release of Windows. Unfortunately, some of the best features, like the ability to capture video from external devices such as DV camcorders and web cams, hit the cutting room floor starting with the Vista version.

Based on version 2.1 of Windows Movie Maker, Portable Windows Movie Maker not only lets you use the missing features on Vista and Windows 7 systems, but it includes the missing transitions and effects from Windows XP, as well as several additional features to boot. Portable and stand-alone, you can use it when you need removed features, like analogue capture, without messing with your current version of Windows Movie Maker. Portable Windows Movie Maker is freeware, Windows only. Portable Windows Movie Maker [via Download Squad]


  • I personally would really like to use this software but noticed the warnings about trojans. I have found that a lot of “portable” versions of freely available software, eg not warez, has had malware embedded into it so I checked it with VirusTotal.com Result: Not Good

    Mods Can you please remove the download link.

    • Those antivirus errors are mostly generic warnings, which just say the file looks suspicious. Understandable, considering programs like ThinApp add compression, load small chunks of the program at a time for network streaming, and other features that you wouldn’t find in an ordinary executable.
