Convert Windows Movie Maker (.MSWMM) file to WMV, AVI, MP3, MP4, MPG, 3GP with ease

Many users have wondered why they could not upload Windows Movie
Maker file (*.MSWMM) to YouTube/Facebook/iPod and more.  What's more,
even most of the MSWMM Converters seem powerless to convert MSWMM to
MP4, WMV, AVI, MPG, MP3, 3GP and more. So what is the matter on earth? 
And how can we successfully convert MSWMM to WMV, MP4, AVI, MP3, MPEG, MOV and more to import to YouTube/Facebook/iPod/iPhone/iPad/Android phone/BlackBerry/Nokia...

Upload MSWMM to YouTubeThis article will solve the above question in two parts.
Part 1
Why YouTube/FaceBook/media players/potable devices refuse to upload or play MSWMM?

The main reason is that MSWMM is a Windows Movie Maker project file,
not regular video file. This project contains the arrangement and timing
information of audio and video clips, video transitions, video effects,
and titles you have added to the storyboard/timeline. A saved project
file in Windows Movie Maker has an .MSWMM file name extension. By saving
your projects, you can open the project file later and begin editing it
in Windows Movie Maker from where you last saved, but you can not play
it on media players (like Windows Media Player) or web browsers ( like
Youtube) let alone potable devices (like MP4 Player, iPad).
