WMA to OGG
Convert WMA to OGG and other video formats to WMA online, free
WMA files are mainly used for streaming music on the web. But they can also be used for storing voice recordings or sound effects. The benefit of WMA files is their high quality audio compared to rivaling formats like MP3. Since it is developed by Microsoft, it can only be opened on Windows devices. Opening WMA files on Mac or Linux requires downloading third-party media players, or conversion to a different format.
It's worth noting that WMA has a number of sub-formats; like WMA Pro which typically stores high-resolution audio; WMA Voice, which is used for streaming voice recordings; and WMA Lossless, which compresses the file without reducing its quality.
OGG files store music, artist info and metadata. Audio stored in OGG usually has better sound quality than MP3. You can easily play your OGG file on most Windows and Android devices, but not as easily on MacOS or iOS. Use Microsoft Groove Music to open OGG files in Windows devices. To play your OGG file on Apple devices, use VLC Media Player or convert it to MP3 or AAC.
Developed by Xiph.org, the OGG container stores audio in the free and open-source Vorbis compression. OGG files created before 2007 may contain video, as it was once used as a multimedia container format.
