What is a WAV (Waveform Audio) file?

Waveform Audio (WAV) is the most-popular digital-audio format for uncompressed audio files. WAV is the result of IBM and Windows iterating a Resource Interchange File Format (RIFF). WAV files are much larger than M4A and MP3 files, making them less practical for consumer use on portable players. Their quality, however, does surpass that of M4A and MP3.

 

How to open a WAV file?

The default player for opening WAV files is Windows Media Player. Alternatively, programs such as iTunes, VLC media player, and QuickTime can also be used to open and play WAV files.

 

Due to a WAV file’s higher, uncompressed quality, they are suitable for importing into music editing, production, and manipulation programs. UltraMixer is a cross-operating-system, software program for deejaying on which WAV files work well. Elmedia Player also supports WAV files.

What is a WMV (Windows Media Video) file?

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.

 

How to open a WMV file?

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.
