What is a WTV (Windows Recorded TV Show) file?

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.

 

How to open a WTV file?

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.

What is a WEBM (WebM) file?

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.

 

How to open a WEBM file?

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.
