Opening WLMP files

Did your computer fail to open a WLMP file? We explain what WLMP files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your WLMP files.

What is a WLMP file?

WLMP is an acronym for Windows Live Movie Project. Files that contain the .wlmp file extension are files that have been created by Microsoft's Windows Live Movie Maker computer application.

The Windows Movie Maker software allows a user to create slide shows and movies. The WLMP files that are created by this software are often saved to WMV format so that the the created media can be burned to DVD or published on social media sites like YouTube. However, as the file project is in progress the file is saved with the .wlmp file extension until the edits have been finalized.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
