Convert ASF to MOV online, for free.
Advanced Systems Format (ASF) is a proprietary Microsoft product, which serves as a container for Windows multimedia content. Microsoft designed it for streaming and to be independent of systems and protocols. It supports chapters, captions, subtitles, metadata tags, streaming, and hardware players, but does not support menus.
It is best to use Windows Media Player to open an ASF file. Alternatively, VLC media player is a good choice too. Keep in mind that ASF can contain WMA and WMV files, which might display as the file extension of the ASF file.

Apple QuickTime (MOV) is a container that can hold various types of multimedia files, including 3D and virtual reality (VR). It is known for being useful for saving multimedia files to a user’s device. One of its defining features is that it stores data in movie “atoms” and “tracks” that makes highly-specific editing of the files possible.
By default, a MOV file opens with QuickTime. If the MOV file is Version 2.0 or earlier, then it can open with Windows Media Player, but more-recent versions will not open in this player. If unable to open a MOV file with QuickTime, then use VLC media player, which works across many platforms, including mobile.
Note that two other file types also use the MOV extension. They are AutoCAD AutoFlix and ROSE Online. These file types are unrelated, with one being obsolete and the other related to an online game. Apple did not develop these technologies and they do not open in QuickTime.
