WLMP (Windows Live Movie Project) is a file type found in the Windows Movie Maker app on Windows 7/Vista OS. It comes with the .wlmp extension and resembles a video file, despite not being a valid video file. Sadly, only the Windows Movie Maker app can open WLMP project files. So to use it on Windows 10/8, Mac, Android, or iOS devices, you must convert WLMP to WMV format. In this post, I’ll be introducing you the best tips and tricks to convert WLMP to WMV easily and quickly easily.

Part 3. 5 Windows Movie Maker Tips and Tricks

If you happen to be still using the all-time popular Windows 7 or Vista, Windows Movie Maker is a tool to be exploited. Not only because it’s a freeware but because it’s feature-laden than even most professional desktop converter apps. Below are some tips & trick on how to get the most out of this powerful app:


The three key divisions

The Windows Movie Maker’s home window is divided into three vital sections, namely – the panes, preview monitor, and storyboard. For starters, the panes provide enough working space, which includes contents, collections, and task sections. The storyboard, on the other hand, allows for creating and editing of projects. Lastly, the preview monitor is for reviewing and analyzing movie making progress.


Trim videos

We already know that Windows Movie Maker can convert WLMP files to other traditional formats. But additionally, it can trim videos and images. To do that, select a video and then click “Open”. Navigate to the edit tab under the “Video” tools section. Now drag the slider to set a starting and ending point of your movie.


Split videos in two

Another exciting feature on the Windows Movie Maker is the ability to cut videos into smaller segments, just like the UniConverter. After opening your video, play with the playback indicator until you reach a point that you wish to split.


Extract audio from video

Surprisingly, this app can make audio files from video clips. To do that, load your clip to the storyboard section and then click “File” > “Select Movie” > “Audio Only” from the adjacent pane. Last but not least, hit the “Extract the audio” button and the give your file a befitting name. Simple!


Upload videos on the internet

Lastly, Windows Movie Maker also doubles up as a file uploader from YouTube, Dailymotion, or whichever site you like. Start by saving the video file on your PC and then click “Publish Movie” > “YouTube” on the app. Honestly, I have never imagined that this could be possible with Windows Movie Maker until I tried it out myself.

In conclusion, the Windows Movie Maker is an excellent alternative to the iSkysoft WLMP to WMV converter. But if you want an extended output format collection, intuitive UI, and many other features, I suggest UniConverter. Also, keep OS compatibility in mind when choosing between these two apps.
