Windows Live Media Player files in media player RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have WLMP files in movie maker, and now movie maker will only play wmv files. I can not get my movie files back because essentials and the codec is no longer available for download? How do I get my data in the movie back?

  • Hi,

    WLMP is not a movie file. It's the Project file which is only useful for re-editing in Live Movie Maker. And it cannot be played outside of Live Movie Maker.

    The .WLMP file is just a text file that records the path to all the source files and records the transitions, effects, etc... It does not include copies of the source files...(photos, video clips, audio clip).
