What is WMV

WMV is short for Windows Media Video, and it a file format developed by Microsoft to store video content in a compressed format so that movies and other video programs can be viewed on a computer. The WMV format incorporates a codec, or encoder/decoder pair that is used to initially compress the file during creation and decompress it on the fly while being worked on a computer.

Applications of WMV

WMV files can be played on all the latest versions of Windows. WMV files can also be played on the Glossary Link Mac OS X through Windows Media Player for the Mac. Currently, a 3rd party plug-in called Flip4Mac WMV is the most preferred method used by Macintosh users to view WMV files on the QuickTime player. The WMV standard also supports Digital Rights Management or Glossary Link DRM which enables the creators or distributors of video content to protect their programs so that only paid subscribers could watch their content.
