Convert OPUS to WAV and other video formats to OPUS online, free


OPUS is an audio format that was developed for streaming audio over the internet. OPUS files are commonly used for streaming voiceovers, WhatsApp and Skype recordings. Unfortunately, very few media players recognise the OPUS format. You will need to use external applications like VLC Media Player, because neither Windows or Mac is able to open it. Primarily, the OPUS format is designed to facilitate the streaming of audio over the internet. As a result, it isn't usually found as a "file" stored in your device's folders. Instead, you may find it encoded as its "container format" like Ogg. Since Ogg is its most common container format, they're often nicknamed as 'Ogg Opus' files. This doesn't affect the OPUS compression algorithm or streaming functions.


WAV files store audio content "without" any compression. This makes them much larger than other file types. Although WAV files can take lots of space to store, they also store audio in high quality. This makes them useful for heavy-use audio storage like professional music recording. WAV files are widely used and can be opened on Windows Media Player, QuickTime Player, VLC, and many more. (The only exception is Linux). WAV files may also appear as ‘WAVE’ in your folder. They are the same file type, just spelt differently. Developed jointly by Microsoft and IBM, the WAV format stores audio data, track numbers, sample rate and bit rate. Content is stored in segments of uncompressed "chunks".
