What is a wmv file?

A WMV (Windows Media Video) file is a video file compressed using a codec developed by Microsoft. The WMV format was originally developed for streaming video over the Internet, as a way for Microsoft to compete against the RealNetworks media streaming formats. WMV files may be stored and distributed via a container file format. WMV files may also be distributed via containers capable of digital rights management encryption. WMV files are supported by many media viewers on the PC platform, and by QuickTime on the Mac OS. WMV v.9 and higher can be distributed in physical form, including Blue-Ray DVD.  Examples of other video formats include MOV, M4V and AVI.
