Convert WTV to WAV 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.

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.
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.
Initial Release: 1991
