WAV Audio Format WAV Converter
The WAV audio file format was developed by IBM and Microsoft in 1991. WAV stands for Waveform Audio File Format, and it is still a commonly used file type. You can open WAV files with almost all media players and devices because it’s such an established format.
Unlike many other popular audio formats like MP3 or AAC, WAV files are uncompressed and ‘lossless’. This means WAV files have higher sound quality, which is why many musicians prefer to record and play music in WAV format. However, because the files aren’t compressed, the downside is that WAV files can be much bigger than other audio formats – up to 10 times the file size of an MP3. Most users choose to keep their digital music in MP3 or AAC format as they can store more music on their device. MP3 and AAC are also the default formats for many media players.
MP4 Video Format MP4 Converter
MP4, sometimes called MPEG4, is one of the most common video formats. MP4 was developed to be easily played and shared. It was originally developed by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) but has become an ISO standard, meaning that it’s now maintained by the International Organisation for Standardization. As MP4 is a standardised format, it will normally play easily on most devices and media players, including Windows Media Player, QuickTime, and VLC. MP4 is usually the preferred format for uploading videos to YouTube, Vimeo or other websites.
MP4 videos are made up of video and audio elements that are compressed separately. The video part is usually compressed with MPEG-4, and the audio is usually compressed using AAC, which is the audio format associated with iTunes. Because both file elements are compressed, MP4s normally have a smaller file size than many other video formats, but still maintain relatively high quality for sharing online.

Frequently asked questions
If you’ve got any questions about converting or compressing files with Zamzar, we’re happy to help! We’ve answered a few commonly-asked questions below, to get you started, and you can find out more information about file conversion and compression with Zamzar, in our Help centre.
The simplest way to convert a WAV to an MP4 is to use an online file conversion website, such as Zamzar. Just upload the WAV file, select MP4 as the file type to convert to, and click 'Convert Now'. This will then convert the file in real time, and you won't have had to download any software to do this.
A WAV file is an audio file that is a lossless file format. This means that the quality of the file is absolute, but also results in a large file size. An MP4 file, meanwhile, is a video format that is known as a lossy file, because it has been compressed in a way that impacts the overall quality of that file. The compression for the audio is handled separately to that of the video, and the reduced file size makes it an efficient format.
No, a WAV file is an audio file. However, it can be converted into a video format, as video files have a separate track for the audio.
You can either convert it directly via the music application on your Mac, or use an online file conversion website, such as Zamzar. To convert the file using the music app, navigate to 'Preferences' and then 'Files', and select your WAV file. Then click 'Import Settings', selecting 'MP4' when the pop-up appears.
The easiest way is to launch the Video Recorder application on Windows, which you can do by searching Windows for it. Once the application is open, click the 'Record' button and then, once the recording is complete, click the 'Stop' button. Once complete, the file will automatically be saved as an M4A file. To then convert this to a WAV file, the simplest way is to use a file conversion website, such as Zamzar, where you can convert the file without needing to download any software.
