WMV is developed by Microsoft and is short for Windows Media Video. It’s a video container format as well as a codec. Files with the extension .wmv are called WMV videos, which can be played on Windows natively. Apple devices seldom support WMV format since WMV comes from Microsoft. Therefore, a WMV converter is essential to play WMV videos on devices that don’t support WMV.
