1.If you plan on using music from iTunes you HAVE to convert it to WMA or MP3(to strip the DRM\Copy protection) in order keep all kinds of crazy unpredictable shit\crashing from happening with the final video output of Live Movie maker.
2. If you want to post in 720p\1080p on youtube you have to convert the WMA files to an MP4(H.264). Live Movie maker only outputs in WMV video format
3. I use Audials Tunebite to convert(and strip DRM from iTunes music) itunes music files to WMA(Windows media audio) and convert the final rendered video to MP4(H.264) so it's HD youtube friendly.
4. DO NOT use your computer AT ALL while the movie rendering\converting is in process for either Live Movie Maker or Tunebite, this will cause weird shit with you final video, like speeding up slowing down video sound\music sync issues.
Tubebite is well worth paying the 30$ for such a useful tool to EASILY deal with audio\video transcodeing and conversions and it can be easily installed on 2+ computers like my laptop and desktop(I don't condone pirating cheap software)
Their is multiple free solutions out there to convert the audio and video but many are unreliable and a PITA to install\use.
If you saw the version I posted on facebook today you can easily see these problems a I was trying to work and render\convert\compress video at the same time....bad idea.
I'm uploading the final stable, synced, non jankey version to youtube right now, will post when when it's done uploading here in about an hour.
