“Need help! I created a birthday greeting video for my little brother with Windows Movie Maker tool. The question is that I can't play this video on my phone. My phone prompts me: can't open the WLMP. Only I have encountered this situation? How you guys solved this problem?”
Can’t play the WLMP on the Windows Media Player, QuickTime player, or mobile phones? Don’t know what WLMP is. Keep reading the following article, and you will know more information about WLMP files and the details for playing WLMP on different devices.
The WLMP is a project file created by Windows (Live) Movie Maker which contains movie transitions, music, effects, etc. but it doesn’t contain an actual video. It’s not a movie file but a text file that you could edit it in Windows Live Movie Maker, and you couldn’t play it directly on your PC or open them on your mobile phone. In other words, it is a special project file for Windows Movie Maker.
But don’t worry. Here, we’ll teach you how to play WLMP files on a mobile phone or other devices in 2 simple steps.
Generally speaking, the Windows Movie Maker can support exporting WLMP project file as WMV format. This step is easy to complete.
1. Simply launch the Windows Movie Maker, and then go to File category.
2. You will see the option of Open project. Then click it to load the WLMP file or directly drag it into the page.
3. In the File menu, click Save movie category and choose to save it as WMV.
If the WMV format can be played on your device, then you don't have to continue reading the following parts.
If the WMV format can't be supported by your device, such as an Apple phone. At the same time, the video format that Windows Movie maker can export is only WMV. So what should we do?
I recommend you to convert WMV to a format that is compatible with your devices. For example, MP4 is one of the most widely used formats for its high compression levels and low-quality loss. An MP4 format video can be played on almost any desktop or portable device. Now, let’s see how to do it.
