Microsoft Digital Video Recording (DVR-MS) is the multimedia container file format that results when a Stream Buffer Engine (SBE) records television (TV) content. DVR-MS is proprietary to Microsoft, which designed it to store TV recordings captured by Microsoft products. In 2008 (with Windows 7), the Windows Recorded TV Show (WTV) format replaced DVR-MS.
Microsoft Windows 7, 8, and 10 still support DVR-MS files. Therefore, a DVR-MS file opens with Windows Media Player. If an application requires DVR-MS, then Microsoft recommends using the following utility to convert WTV to DVR-MS: \Windows\ehome\WTVConverter.exe.
Other players that can open a DVR-MS file include VLC media player, Cyberlink PowerDirector, Cyberlink PowerDVD, and Cyberlink PowerProducer.

Microsoft initially developed the Windows Media Audio (WMA) file format to compete with the MP3 file format. WMA is both an audio codec and an audio format. WMA has evolved since its inception in 1999, with several updated versions: WMA Pro, WMA Lossless, and WMA Voice. It is a key component of Windows Media, which Microsoft discontinued.
As a key component of Windows Media, Windows Media Player supports WMA files and is usually the default program for opening these. Because of their relative ubiquity, however, many other players and programs support the file type. WMA files are also frequently used in online streaming.
Other programs that can open WMA files include VLC media player and UltraMixer. For mobile devices, try OverDrive Media Console, which has separate versions for Apple iOS, Google Android, and Windows Phone/Windows 10 Mobile.
