Window movie maker will also do this. It is probably already on your PC.

The output is a wmv file which will play on almost all PC`s using windows media player.

rdave13: I would imagine that Photobucket have a maximum file size or length for videos. Do you know what it is?.

Standard PB accepts video up to 5 mins.
PB Pro ( to which I subscribe) accepts up to 9 mins 59 secs.
Pro costs about a tenner a year I think. It also gives you a storage of 5gb.

I have about 1300 photos/videos and only used 12% so far.
I find it excellent.

As I recall, YouTube allow a maximum video play time of 10 mins.

I have one of mine on there that plays for 10mins-15secs.
