How to convert WLMP file to MP3 for successful playback? Let’s find the best answer in this article and meet the exclusive WLMP to MP3 converter here:

WLMP File Is Not a Real Video/Audio File

Recently, we heard from several members inquiring about how to convert WLMP file into MP3 audio format. In order to thoroughly settle such confusions, it is necessary to write down this tutorial to introduce how to convert WLMP to MP3 file in a right way. First of all, I have to declare that WLMP is just the proprietary movie project file created by Microsoft Windows Live Movie Maker and a WLMP project file only contains media paths, transitions, effect settings, which has not been rendered as a valid video media format in deed. In other words, it cannot be played and opened successfully by any third-party media player and editing software. The next post will show you how to open WLMP file and convert it to MP3 format.

Attention: If your WLMP file comes from someone else's computer, online download or sharing by others, since the path of the original media file has changed, it may eventually lead to a failure of WLMP file import and conversion. So the following methods will no longer work.

The Appropriate Method to Convert WLMP to MP3

The so-called WLMP to MP3 converter throughout the web is falsely misleading. The Windows Live Movie Maker is the only tool that can open WLMP files. However, it does not support directly saving it as MP3. Therefore, the whole process needs to be divided into two steps. Let’s get started!

Part-1- How to Render WLMP File to a Real Video/Audio File

Step 1. Launch the Windows Live Movie Maker, click the menu drop-down list on the top left corner, choose the “Open project” to import the WLMP file.

(Notice: Your file and settings will be loaded and you can continue the editing work or proceed to the next step if the path of each original file is not changed.)

Step 2. Return to the drop-down list of the menu, head to the “Save movie”>>> “For computer”, you can choose to convert WLMP to MP4 or WMV. You can also scroll down to the end and select the “Audio only”, then customize the output directory and file name to render WLMP as an M4A or WMA audio file.

After all is finished, you will be noticed that the conversion is completed, then you will get a real video/audio file. Next, we can get into the Part-2.

Part-2-Convert the Output File to MP3 in A Breeze

You just need a straightforward and practical converter that will facilitate transforming the exported file into MP3 format. For you, I strongly recommend WonderFox Free HD Video Converter Factory, which is a well-received free converter. Let us begin to convert the output video/audio file to MP3 with it.
