Convert WMA to WAV 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 converting 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.


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".
