6. About WMV

WMV is a very popular video format developed by Microsoft. However, for Mac users, it's a little bit head-scratching for them to play, edit WMV files and to import them to iTunes because its compatibility with Mac system is not very satisfying. For example, you can't play WMV with QuickTime; you can't edit WMV with iMovie or Final Cut Pro; you can't share WMV to video sharing sites that don't support WMV. WMV is not a welcome video format on Mac. Fortunately, a WMV converter for Mac can fix all these problems. With a common video converter software, you can convert WMV to MOV, M4V or MP4 format which is well supported on Mac. Here I would like to recommend a better WMV Video Converter on Mac (El Capitan, Yosemite, Mavericks, Mountain Lion, Lion and Snow Leopard included) that not only converts WMV file to common video formats, but also changes WMV to iMovie, Final Cut Pro and Mac-friendly format so you can play, edit and share WMV files on Mac without any hassle.

Tips: What is WMV?

Windows Media Video (WMV) is a compressed video file format for several proprietary codecs developed by Microsoft. The original codec, known as WMV, was originally designed for Internet streaming applications, as a competitor to RealVideo. The other codecs, such as WMV Screen and WMV Image, cater for specialized content. Through standardization from the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), WMV has gained adoption for physical-delivery formats such as HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc. It doesn't necessarily define the technology what it uses -- since version 7 (WMV7) Microsoft has used its own flavour of MPEG-4 video encoding technology (not very surprising, it's not compatible with other MPEG-4 technologies). DivX video format is originally based on hacked WMV codec. Since WMV is mainly used on Windows, to use WMV on Mac, you'd better to convert WMV files to a Mac-friendly format using a WMV converter for Mac.
