6. About WMV

WMV is a very popular video format developed by Microsoft. However, for Mac users, it's a little bit head-scratching to play WMV with QuickTime, edit WMV files with iMovie or to import to iTunes because its compatibility with Mac system is not very satisfying. However, you can convert WMV to MOV (QuickTime) in order to play the Windows' default format WMV on Mac with QuickTime player. Here is the entire progress.

Knowledge Sharing on QuickTime:

QuickTime Player compatible video formats:

  • QuickTime Movie (.mov), MPEG-4 (.QuickTime, .m4v), MPEG-1, 3GPP, 3GPP2, AVI, DV

QuickTime-supportable audio files:

  • iTunes Audio (.m4a, .m4b, .m4p), MP3, Core Audio (.caf), AIFF, AU, SD2, WAV, SND, AMR

To play QuickTime uncompatible files, you can extent QuickTime by using codec components so that you can import or play a variety of additional media formats such as WMV. But this way works very complicated, and it would charge you $29.00. In this way, although you can watch WMV files in QuickTime, you can’t play WMV for other uses, such on edit in iMovie or Final Cut Pro, no organization with iTunes, even no sync to iPhone etc. So the best way is to convert the file format.

Sorry for the inconvenience. To see the first image in the step 2, you can either click the format icon to the right side of each added WMV file, or go to File > Encode Settings. Then you can open the format drop down list to select MOV in the Common Video category.
