wmv WMV (Video)

File extension .wmv
Category Video File
Description A WMV file is commonly known by its full name - Windows Media Video. Microsoft had wanted a standard video format that could play across all their different devices and operating systems and could even be used to stream videos over the Internet. To satisfy these needs Microsoft created the WMV file which was a compressed video format that, at the time, was lightweight and efficient and met their original requirements. Although as time has progressed it has gradually become less popular as it couldn't easily be opened on any other operating systems or applications but it is still one of the formats used by Blu-ray video disks.

Technical Details WMV files is a compressed video file format that has been based on another Microsoft file format called Microsoft's Advanced Systems Format. Its compression was originally so effective that it often comes out to half the size of an MP4 whilst still retaining its quality. More recent video file formats have rivalled this compression which has led to a gradual waning in popularity.

Category Video File
Description An MP4 file is often called an MPEG4 file and it is used to store video and/or audio data. When iTunes launched in 2001 the MP4 file format saw a major boom in use. This is because it is the standard format for the majority of iTunes downloads. As well as iTunes causing a major increase in use, the Internet has also been behind its increased popularity as when a user downloads a video on the Internet it tends to be in the MP4 format. MP4 files are clever in their design in that they combine compression technologies which means they tend to be small in size which is another reason for their popularity.

Technical Details An MP4 file is often known as a container format because of the way it is structured. MP4 files were the file type of choice for Apple's iTunes mainly because of how efficient they are. In other words, they were small in size but still retained the quality of the audio and video elements. The reason for this is because the audio compression is handled differently from the video compression with the video compression being done using MPEG-4 whilst the audio compression uses AAC which actually helps to improve the audio quality. The increasing popularity of MP4 files has seen the creation of a number of MP4 players which are designed to play MP4 files.
