What's a .vpb File?

A file with .vpb extension stands for Video Project Backup. As the name suggests, it's a project file created by Microsoft Photos' built-in Video Editor (formerly Story Remix) for editing backup purpose. In other words, the VPB file is used to back up your project and quickly restore your last unfinished video editing work in Video Editor app.

Therefore, Video Editor app is the only program to open and convert VPB files, any alleged VPB to MP4 converter is totally FAKE. In view of a fact that some people have no idea about the operation procedure. Next, I'll demonstrate how to convert VPB to MP4 step by step.

How to Convert VPB to MP4 in Video Editor App?

Video Editor is the successor to the discontinued Windows Movie Maker and has built into the Microsoft Photos app. Unlike other video editors' project files that only record the references to media files and editing settings, Video Editor puts this project and all the media you've added to it into a single .vpb file so that you can use it on another PC without worrying about "source file missing" or "corrupt project" issue.

Step 1 - Open Video Editor App

Type "Video Editor" into the "Search Bar" next to the "Start Menu" and select the Video Editor tile to launch the app.


Step 2 - Import VPB File to Video Editor App

Here is the point, many people don't seem to know how to open the VPB file. Simply click the "three-dots" icon and select "Import backup" option, locate and select the VPB file. Then click "Open" to import it.


Step 3 - Restore Last Editing State

Video Editor will load VPB file and restore all your previous editing state, depending the file size, it may take a while. Next, you are able to continue your unfinished editing work, such as split and merge video files, add filter and effects, add watermark to video, add background music and so forth. When everything is all set, it's time to export VPB to MP4 video.


Step 4 - Start to Convert VPB to MP4

Press "Finish video" button in the top-right corner. By default, it has selected the recommended 1080p resolution. Click "Export" button and specify an output folder. Finally, hit "Export" to start the VPB to MP4 conversion.


Step 5 - Wait for the Conversion

With hardware acceleration enabled, the conversion is supposed to be faster if the project size is not so large. Just be patient, Video Editor will automatically play the rendered MP4 video when the conversion is complete.


Final Words...

That's the full workflow about how to convert VPB file to MP4 video. A handful of people complained that they got an error message "We couldn't restore this project. Here's the error code, in case you need it: 0x80131501." This case sometimes may happen if the VPB is corrupted while exporting or transferring, and another possibility is that the Video Editor app needs to be updated.
