WMV Video Format WMV Converter
The WMV format name is short for Windows Media Video file. Like the name suggests, Microsoft developed the WMV format for use with Windows. It’s been around since 1999 and is a common video format which is still the default format in Windows Media Player. WMV files can store short clips, animations, TV episodes and whole high-definition feature films. If a WMV video has been bought through the Microsoft Store, then the file might be protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM), which means it can’t be shared or copied.
In addition to Windows Media Player, you can open WMV files using Windows Movies & TV and VLC media player. You can also upload WMV files to YouTube and Vimeo, or edit them using some video editors, including Pinnacle Studio and Adobe Premiere Pro for Windows.
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.
How to convert a WMV to a MP4 file?
- 1. Choose the WMV file that you want to convert.

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.
You can convert your WMV to MP4 using the online conversion tool from Zamzar. Upload your WMV file, select MP4, and click ‘Convert Now’. Your file will then convert for you, and you will be able to download your MP4 from the same page or have it delivered to your preferred email address.
If you need a file to be efficiently exported onto a Blu-ray disc, and portability isn’t an issue, then WMV will be the better option as WMV files retain excellent quality. However, if you’re wanting to share the file and need a file that is easily opened, with compressed video and audio handled independently of one another, MP4 would be the better option for you. If you need to convert your video to another format, you can use our 3-step conversion tool to convert the file straight away.
Your WMV file may not be playing because you don’t have the correct codecs installed on your device to play the files. If you’re using Windows Media Player, for instance, older WMV files will need a special codec to get them to open and play in newer versions of the media player. You can either install the required codecs, or instead convert your file to MP4 (a more universally supported format) using a tool like Zamzar’s online converter.
To play your WMV file on Windows 10 you can use Windows Media Player. You might need to install special codecs if your WMV file is an old file and you are using a newer version of the media player. Alternatively, you can use Zamzar’s free online converter to convert the file to MP4, which is a format that can be played by most media players. Other options include using VideoLAN VLC Player, MPlayer, or KMPlayer to play your file.
If you’re having problems playing your WMV file, you can easily convert it to another format, such as MP4, using Zamzar’s online converter tool. Other solutions for playing WMV files include using Windows Media Player, or downloading a software like VideoLAN VLC Player, MPlayer, or KMPlayer.
