Convert WMV to WAV and other videos to WAV online, free


WMV is a popular video format designed primarily for Windows devices. You can upload WMV files to Facebook and YouTube, but not to mobile-based social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok. WMV files can be opened on Windows Media Player or any other native video player on a Windows operating system. It is a popular storage format for third-party programs storing short animations. Windows Media Video (WMV) files are not compatible with Apple devices like iPhones. All WMV files must be converted before they can be played on Apple's QuickTime Player.


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".
