Convert WMV to MP3 online, for free.
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.

MPEG-1 Audio Layer III or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III (MP3) is a digital, audio-coding format used to compress a sound sequence into a very small file to enable digital storage and transmission. MP3 files are the most widely-used audio file for consumers. Due to small size and acceptable quality, MP3 files are accessible to a wide audience, as well as easy to store and share.
Because MP3 files are so prevalent, most major audio playback programs support them. Simply clicking on the file will open it in iTunes or Windows Media Player, depending on your preferred platform. Users can also preview MP3 files.
Another program that can open MP3 files is VLC media player. Keep in mind that two other file types use the MP3 extension. They are Masterpoint green points data, which is obsolete; and TeslaCrypt 3.0 ransomware encrypted file, which is malware that demanded ransom in bitcoins, but is thankfully now deactivated and no longer a threat.
Initial Release: 1993
