Convert QT to WMV 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.

Windows Media Video (WMV) is a common and widely supported video format. It compresses the file size with a codec resulting in an easy-to-manage file that maintains the quality of the video. A digital container format, called Advanced Systems Format (ASF), often encapsulates WMV files.
Most media players can open and read WMV (and ASF) files. The best player for opening a WMV file is Microsoft Windows Media Player. Microsoft developed WMV and ASF, and many videos online today are WMV files. VLC media player is another reliable option, which can play multimedia files across several platforms.
WMV is also easy to convert to other video file types. However, keep in mind that the conversion process might cause picture quality to decrease. If a conversion is needed, then HandBrake is a free and open-source tool for converting WMV files.
