WLMP, an acronym for Windows Live Movie Project, is a file type associated with Microsoft’s Windows Movie Maker program on Windows 7 and Vista. WLMP is not a valid video file but a project file used to save movie transitions, music, video effects, as well as links to digital photos or video clips if people create videos in Windows Live Movie Maker.
