Are you worried about the same issue? If it’s so, you need to know more about WLMP file format first.
WLMP files are not actually videos. That’s why you can’t watch the output file using some media player like VLC, QuickTime. WLMP stands for Windows Live Movie Project, which is just a movie project file created by Windows Live Movie Maker. It contains movie transitions, music, and effects as well as links to digital photos and videos.
To play WLMP files you make on iPhone, iPad and iPod at anytime anywhere and share them with your friends at your fingertips, you can follow the simple steps below. This is one of the most effective way to convert WLMP to MP4 formats as well as directly transfer it to portable devices like iPhone, iPad and iPod.
Part I: Save WLMP project as a video
This method is applicable for Windows 7/Vista users only. Follow these steps:
Step 1 – First, you’ll import your WLMP file into Windows Live Movie Maker.
Step 2 – Select File > Save Movie. You can then choose to save it as WMV.
Tips: You can save WLMP project file as MP4 directly if you are using Windows Live Movie Maker 2012.
