Importing iPhone MP4 Video to Windows Movie Maker
Got some iPhone MP4 videos but failed to load to Windows Movie Maker for editing. Looking around for any decent tutorials, I worked out a solution to get Windows Movie Maker import and edit iPhone mp4 video easily. Here is the iPhone video to Windows Movie Maker workflow.

The iPhone (including iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 4S, etc.) records in MPEG-4 and outputs its files as .MOV or .MP4 files (the container). Files are compressed using the h.264 codec, which is not for editing, but for delivery.

To get rid of the trouble, you just need to change the iPhone .mp4 clips to something Movie Maker could natively handle, and WMV format is usually ideal. Brorsoft Video Converter is just what you need to achieve your goal.
