What is a WLMP file?

A WLMP file is a movie project file created by Windows Live Movie Maker, a program that allows users to create their own movies and slideshows. It contains movie transitions, music, and effects as well as links to digital photos or videos. WLMP files are used to create videos but they do not contain actual video.

More Information

WLMP files are used to create personal videos for sharing with friends and family. They can be exported to .WMV files, published to YouTube, and burned to DVDs.

Windows Live Movie Maker was initially released in 2000 as part of the Windows Essentials software suite. It is primarily used to create and edit videos then share them to YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, Flickr, or OneDrive. In 2012, Windows discontinued the Windows Live name and the program became known as just Windows Movie Maker.
