Getting video hosting provider information from the Internet
This page indicates the progress of downloading video hosting provider information from the Web. During this time, information such as the video hosting providers available for your country or region, the video hosting providers name, and the server address for where movies are uploaded to are included in a file and downloaded to your computer.
The file that contains the video hosting provider information is named FTPinfo.dat, and it is located on your hard disk at \Documents and Settings\UserAccountName\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Movie Maker. For example, if the Windows operating system is installed on drive C, and your account name is John, the video hosting provider information file is located in C:\Documents and Settings\John\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Movie Maker\FTPinfo.dat. This file is stored for each user account on the computer.
- Windows Movie Maker communicates with Microsoft.com to download a current listing of providers available in your geographic country or region. This list is based on your current Regional and Language settings in Control Panel and will be stored in your Local Settings folder. For more information about privacy, see the Windows Movie Maker privacy statement at the Microsoft Web site.
