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.
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.
