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.

WebM (WEBM) is a freely-licensed file container designed for the Web. Specifically, it was designed to be compatible with HTML5, originally. It supports chapters, captions, subtitles, metadata tags, streaming, attachments, 3D codecs, 3D containers, and hardware players. WEBM compresses video streams with VP8 or VP9 codecs, and audio with Vorbis or Opus codecs.
VLC media player and MPlayer can open WEBM files on any operating system (OS). Other good choices for opening WEBM include Winamp for Microsoft Windows OS, and Elmedia for Mac OS X.
Microsoft browsers do not have built-in WebM codecs. Therefore, install the codecs separately. However, most browsers support WEBM files.
