Convert WTV to FLAC online, for free.
Microsoft designed Windows Recorded TV Show (WTV) to store TV recordings captured by Microsoft products. WTV is a multimedia container that compresses video with MPEG-2 and MPEG-4, and audio with MPEG-1 Layer II or Dolby Digital AC-3. It supports metadata and digital rights management (DRM). In 2008, WTV replaced another Microsoft-proprietary format, DVR-MS.
It is important to know that Microsoft no longer supports WTV. Regardless, it is best to use Windows Media Player to open a WTV file. If a copyright protects the content, then it only plays on the Windows PC that was used to record it. If a copyright does not protect the content, then it can play on other platforms.
Other players that can open a WTV file include VLC media player, Cyberlink PowerDirector, Cyberlink PowerDVD, and Cyberlink PowerProducer. For additional information, read this article on Microsoft’s web site.

Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) is a file format that shrinks an audio file’s size, which, as the word “lossless” in the name implies, results in no loss in audio quality or original data. FLAC accomplishes this by using an algorithm that compresses the file to approximately 50 to 70 percent of its original size.
The default program for opening a FLAC file is VLC media player. Other details about FLAC include that it is unpatented, permits music reproduction, is compatible with Telephony Application Programming Interface (TAPI), and is not subject to digital rights management (DRM).
