What is File Extension WMV

WMV (Windows Media Video) is a compressed video file format for several proprietary codecs developed by Microsoft. Although WMV is generally packed into the ASF container format, it can also be put into the AVI or Matroska container format. The resulting files claim the .AVI, or .MKV file extensions, respectively.

WMV can be stored in an AVI file when using the WMV 9 Video Compression Manager (VCM) codec implementation. Another common way to store WMV in an AVI file is to use the VirtualDub encoder.

Some WMV files may have digital rights management (DRM) protection. This protection uses PlayForSure standard developed by Microsoft Corporation.

Some WMV files may also require plug-ins, which are components that add functionality to Windows Media Player 9 Series or later. You may not be able to install plug-ins in earlier versions of the Player.
