WMA Audio Format WMA Converter
The full name for the WMA format is Windows Media Audio. As the name suggests, it’s an audio format specifically for Windows devices. Microsoft introduced WMA files in 1999 following the popularity of the MP3 format, and two years after the launch of the AAC format for digital music. However, WMA is not as widely used as these two formats.
WMA files generally use lossy compression to make the files smaller. This can mean the audio quality isn’t as high as with some other formats, although lossless versions of WMA are possible if you install newer codecs. Because WMA is a proprietary format, it’s not always compatible with non-Microsoft players or operating systems. However, you can play WMA files with Windows Media Player, Nullsoft Winamp, MPlayer and VLC. You can also use some of these programs, or online tools like Zamzar, to convert WMA files into formats like MP3 or AAC.
AAC Audio Format AAC Converter
AAC is one of the most common formats for digital music, in a large part because it is the default format for Apple devices and the iTunes program, as well as some Sony and Nintendo devices. AAC is short for Advanced Audio Coding. It was developed in 1997 and is now an open standard recognised by ISO, the International Organization for Standardization.
Like MP3, the AAC file format uses lossy compression. With both formats there is some loss of audio quality to create smaller file sizes that let users to store and share music more easily. However, with both MP3 and AAC, most listeners cannot hear this loss of quality. AAC also generally produces higher quality sound than MP3. As AAC is a widely used open standard format for digital music, you can play AAC audio tracks with almost all media players, including Apple Music, Windows Media Player, VLC, and Adobe Audition.
