Convert mp3 audio to mp4 video using Windows Movie Maker?

Can anyone please tell me how I can convert mp3 audio files to mp4 video files using Windows Movie Maker? I understand that it's possible to create mp4 audio files, but I need mp4 video files. Thanks for any help.

I don't see how.

MP3 only has audio so it would not have video to be a MP4. Maybe you read an article but didn't share that article?

I was told this by someone who never steered me wrong before

I guy I spoke to at another online forum said he imported an mp3 audio file and an image file into Express Animate (from NCH Software) and saved it as a wmv video file, and then converted it to an mp4 video file. He said I could do the same with Windows Movie Maker.

That's not what you wrote in your first post.

Now that you added an animated image, you changed your question in a fundamental way.

Have them show you how to use such or ask what web site they got this from.

Why not use Express Animate?

Also, if a static image will do, there are dozens of slide show software titles that take an image then your mp3 is the sound track.

No, a static image.

>Have them show you how to use such...

Do you mean that I should ask there, not here?

>...or ask what web site they got this from.

Do you mean where did they download Express Animate from? That I don't know.

>Why not use Express Animate?

I can if I have to, but he said I could use Windows Movie Maker, which he knows I already have.

>Also, if a static image will do, there are dozens of slide show software titles that take an image then your mp3 is the sound track.

Will they produce a video file in a standard video format such as wmv or mp4 that will play on a website of my own? Or do you mean something like a Powerpoint presentation, which WON'T play on websites such as Facebook or Blogger?

Once again I should retype the answer...

The forum still stop me from giving the link though the moderator help me give it in my last post.
I should say it doesn't make sense to create .mp4 file from .mp3 audio files. If you need .mp4 video files, you can just add pictures to movie maker and save them as .mp4 video files.Note that audios are not allowed in movie maker unless you upload a video into it at first. If you insist on convert mp3 audio files to mp4 video files, try VideoGrabber and it does work.

But it is still interesting to...

find out why they use mp4 or mpg audio when one can just use mp3. Also I wonder if a mp3 player plays mp4 audio.
