Can WMV Files Be Uploaded to YouTube?

The answer is yes. You can upload WMV to YouTube. Currently, WMV can be accepted by YouTube, but it’s not suggested for uploading. YouTube does not like the codecs that WMV format contains, and it will re-encode WMV files, eventually resulting in reduced video quality. Then you may wonder “How can I upload WMV to YouTube with high quality?” In that case, you’d better convert WMV files to MP4 format with AAC audio codec and H264 video codec, the best encoding format for YouTube upload. The next part is to demonstrate how to convert WMV to MP4 efficiently. Read on.
