The other day, one of my friends Lucy told me that he had got a video in .wlmp format but he couldn't open it or play it on his iPad. I told him that .wlmp file is an invalid video file, actually, it is a movie project file to generate the video files in Windows Live Movie Maker. The worst thing is that .wlmp project files cannot be opened or played by any media players like iPhone series, iTunes, iPod, iPad, etc.
We cannot import it to YouTube, Face book for sharing either. "What should we do then?"Lucy asked. Well, those WLMP files can be opened in Windows Live Movie Maker (provided that you are a Windows user) and be saved to be WMV video format, but the problem still exits, it doesn't allow us to play such WMV files on Mac as well. With the purpose of playing .wlmp files on Mac QuickTime, iTunes, iPad, iPod, or edit them in iMovie, Final Cut Pro, we have no other choices but to convert convert wlmp to mp4, MOV, or MP3. Lucy seemed to be a little confused, "but how to convert it?"She asked in a puzzling look. I told her to take it easy and I suggested her using a good wlmp to mp4 converter to offer help. The converter I recommended to her was the Doremisoft AVCHD Video Converter.
There are three reasons for my recommendation. 1. It is good at converting wlmp files to mp4, mov, flv and other popular formats to be played by most media players.
2. It always does the job quickly and with high quality, which's a smart choice for the people who concern about the video quality most. 3. Apart from converting wlmp to mp4, it can also help to convert AVCHD files generated by camcorders like Sony handycam to mp4 and enable the users to play the recorded avchd videos on the devices they like. For example, they can either transfer Sony handycam to mac for editing or convert videos to mp4 for kindle fire hd playback as they wish. There is no wonder why this converter is favored by lots of different groups of users.
Lucy was very happy and couldn't wait to try the converter. I asked her to download the trial version as per the link first. 1. Video Converter for Mac users: Video Converter for Mac 2. Converter for Windows users: Video
Later, I showed her the guides on how to convert the wlmp files to mp4 with this converter as below. Preparation: Create WLMP as a video file Save the recorded videos as a video file. Run the Windows Live Movie Maker, and then load the WLMP file. Then, change the WLMP to WMV video format by clicking "Save movie", in that way, we can convert WLMP to any popular video format. Step 1: Import the video files to the converter Download, install and run the video converter, then drag and drop the generated videos into the converter, or, you can import them by clicking the "Add Files" icon.
Step 2: Select the appropriate output format Press"Convert to" to choose "Common Video"> 'MPEG-4 Movie (*.mp4)" from the drop-sown list as the output format.
Step 3: Start to convert After the 2 steps, press the start button to begin converting WLMP files to MP4. A few minutes later, the conversion will be done.
Lucy did exactly as the guidelines above and finally she made it! "It is so easy and fantastic!" She cheered happily.
