Edit MS-DVR in Windows Movie Maker

By default MS-DVR files are not editable through Windows Movie Maker 2.1.

A little tweak that has been around for several years just caught my attention. I don’t know the original source, however, know that I am not.

Import the following into the registry and reboot.
