It's easy to post your Windows Live Movie Maker Project files, or WLMPs, on your Facebook timeline, because Movie Maker provides a sharing feature that you can use to link your Windows Live account to your Facebook profile. This means that you don't have to use any third-party converters, because after you link the two accounts, you can share your WLMP videos directly from Movie Maker's interface.

Step 1

Double-click the WLMP file to open your project inside Windows Movie Maker.

Step 2

Click the Facebook logo in the "Share" section of the menu bar.

Step 3

Select the desired resolution for your movie. A higher resolution means a higher quality for your movie, but also means you have to wait longer for it to upload when sharing it on your Facebook timeline.

Step 4

Enter your Windows Live username and password when prompted to do so, and then press "Sign In" to log in to Windows Live.

Step 5

Press "Connect with Facebook." Type your Facebook email address and password, and then press "Log In" to link your social network and Windows Live accounts.

Step 6

Click "Publish" to share your video on your timeline, and then wait for the message confirming the upload.
