OK, I made a video in Muvizu, next I clicked on Make video button and selected 1280 x 720, and the program did it'a thing and developed a Muvizu file.

When I try to play it in windows media player it won't work. What I'm I doing wrong ?

If your scene lasted much more than one minute, it will not render correctly and all you'll get is a blank screen. Either split the rendering into more than one piece and render them individually and then later splice them together with Muvizu Join or in a video editor. Your other option is to save the render as targa files and use a video editor to put them together and re-render them as a complete scene.

Yep, the file limit is 2GB - if it's larger than that then either split it up for best results or use a different codec.
For the best results, try out the image sequence output since that doesn't have the limits of a video file and doesn't require codecs.

You can run the file through vdub64. It will rebuild the indexes. Then save avi as, using the same video codec as the original. This seems to keep the same quality.

I rendered a 5+ minute scene to avi to test your method for long video scenes. I ran it through vdub64 and the resulting video was only about 1 minute (in the middle of the scene) and it ignored the rest because it had problems throughout the video.
The best way to render long scenes is to either split it up into about 1 minute chunks and recombine them later or to use the targa output files which is much faster and eliminates errors in rendering altogether. You can also use any of the frames as a high quality picture. You just need a video editor that will put all the frames together and then you can add the audio.
Using this technique, I have found that I have to adjust the length of the audio file to match the length of the video file. I think it has to do with the width of the individual frames brought in. If anyone can help me, I would like to know if I can adjust Vegas so that when it brings in the Targa files it will be the same length as the audio file that goes with it without having to adjust its length.

Muvizu exports at 25fps so you have to make sure your video editor is importing them at 25fps in the settings. This way the audio should be exactly (or very close to) the right length
