Opening WMDB files

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

What is a WMDB file?

Files that contain the .wmdb file extension are most commonly associated with the Microsoft Windows Media Player. The WMDB files that are used by this media player contain a library of media files that are used by the application.

These WMDB files do not contain any actual media data, but instead contain a list of references to the actual audio and video files that are referenced by the WMBD so that the Microsoft Windows Media Player can locate the media files that a user wants to play on their computer.

These files can only be used with the Windows Media Player and is not compatible with other media playback software applications.

Software that will open, convert or fix WMDB files

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.
