File Extension WMV

Information about WMV files and how to open them

A WMV - Windows Media Video File is a file format that is based on the ASF file format. ASF can be described as a video file "container" because it is often used as a temporary format in which to record or store a file before final compression. Both formats are owned by Microsoft. A WMV - Windows Media Video File is encoded using proprietary Windows Media technology. Every modern computer that runs Windows can play back a WMV file using the built in Windows Media Player. Official support for Apple Mac computers was discontinued after Windows Media Player 9, but there are free third party solutions that will enable playback on those devices.
