Convert QT to WMA online, for free.
Apple QuickTime Movie (QT) is a file format that Apple developed for movie clips. It is very similar to MOV in that it is a container that can hold various types of multimedia files, including 3D and virtual reality (VR). It is an older format, whereas MOV is newer.
By default, a QT file opens with QuickTime. If the QT 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 QT file with QuickTime, then use VLC media player, which works across many platforms, including mobile.

Microsoft initially developed the Windows Media Audio (WMA) file format to compete with the MP3 file format. WMA is both an audio codec and 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.
