What is a WMV file?

A WMV file is a video file based on the Microsoft Advanced Systems Format (ASF) container format and compressed with Windows Media compression. It contains video encoded with one of Microsoft's Windows Media Video (WMV) proprietary codecs and is similar to an .ASF file.

The WMV file is one of the most common files used to store video in Windows. You may see the file when downloading video from the Internet or when someone shares a video via USB device or email. You can watch video stored in WMV files with a variety of media players. Windows Video and Media Player are popular choices since they come installed with many Windows operating systems.

Microsoft Windows Media Player 9 was the last version of the Windows Media Player developed for Mac OS X. However, Mac users can use Flip4Mac WMV (also known as Microsoft Windows Media Components for QuickTime) to play WMV files.

NOTE: Windows Media Audio (WMA) files are saved with a .WMA extension.

Flip4Mac WMV Player Editor's Review

Flip4Mac is a plug-in that allows you to play Windows Media files with QuickTime player.
It comes as a new item for Mac OS X's 'Preferences Panel' under the 'Other' category. The installation is very simple, because Flip4Mac is an install package that automatically does it.
Beside the support for Windows Media formats you can use this plug-in for playing the content from the Internet using a Web browser. The Safari is not the only browser that is supported, you can use other browsers too.
The network support is good for a media plug-in. You can use MMS Real-Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP), MMS HTTP, HTTP and FTP network protocols with this plug-in.
The application has the support for these file formats: Advanced Systems Format (ASF), Advanced Stream Redirector (ASX) and Audio Video Interleaved (AVI). The plug-in can also handle Windows Media Video (WMV) containers, which have the same roots as ASF. The Microsoft's audio container, Windows Media Audio (WMA) is also supported by this plug-in.
The video codec list is quite good. You can get the support for WMV 7, 8, and 9, ISO MPEG 4 standard (versions 1.0 and 1.1), Microsoft MPEG 4 (versions 2 and 3), and Microsoft Motion JPEG.
There are many audio codecs supported too. You can get the support for WMV 9, including the Professional and Lossless versions, ISO MPEG Layer 3 (MP3), and some other Microsoft audio codecs.
The free version is limited though. You can upgrade the application to a paid version. Depending on your choice, you can use its extended functionalities. Check the producer's Website in order to get a complete list of the supported upgrades and fees.
Pluses: it has the support for a lot of files and encoding formats. The network support is good and you can use this plug-in within a Web browser.
Drawbacks / flaws: getting the support for advanced coding such as the multi-channel support is not free.
In conclusion: It is a nice way to get the support for Windows Media formats and not only.
