WLMP is an acronym for Windows Live Movie Maker Project. This is a project file saved from a movie making project in Microsoft’s Windows Live Movie Maker, a free movie maker which is a component of Windows Essentials. However, WLMP is actually not a video file and cannot be opened or played. To overcome this problem, you will have to convert WLMP to MP4 to play on aother device. For example, you can use UniConverter.

Fortunately, there are a number of converters, both desktop and online capable of converting WLMP files to MP4 or other formats with ease. Choose the best tool and experience the best services.
