    Update: sorry.It doesn’t work on windows XP and I made the above comment by mistake.

  8. can I take videos on this ??

  9. yes, you can make movies from your videos. It is basically a movie maker and editor. If you meant whether you can capture a video, you will need a webcam to do it from your computer.

  10. Hi,

    I am looking for Windows Movie Maker that can run on XP.

    I tried what Rajesh suggested on a similar request on April 13, that WMM 2.6 works with XP.
    I tried to download but the download aborted stating that it only works on Vista.
    Do you have any suggestions?



  11. I updated my comment. It was my mistake. Don’t you have version 2.1 on windows XP? You might have probably disabled it.
