What is WMV?
Windows Media Video, or WMV files, is a type of video that can be played
on your computer and portable media players. Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's
PlayStation 3 video game consoles can also play WMV HD. A WMV file is in
most circumstances encapsulated in the Advanced Systems Format (ASF) container
format. This file is also found as a video/audio file on the Xbox. A number
of programs capture this file extension. WMV HD is not a standalone video
codec nor a special modification of the WMV9 codec. As of April 2006, all
existing WMV HD titles are encoded using the VC-1 compliant Windows Media
Video 9 (FourCC: WMV3) codec conforming to VC-1 Main Profile @ High Level
specification. Since no known domestic DVD player supports this format,
users of Photo Story 3 wishing to generate material capable of being played
in a DVD player will first have to convert to MPEG-2 before burning a DVD
(average file sizes in MPEG-2 are 5 to 6 times the .wmv file). WMV 9 also
introduced a new profile titled Windows Media Video 9 Professional, which
is activated automatically whenever the video resolution exceeds 300,000
pixels (e.g., 528x576, 640*480 or 768x432 and beyond) and the bitrate 1000
kbit/s. It is targeted towards high-definition video content, at resolutions
such as 720p and 1080p. The loss of the ability to restore licenses for
WMV files in the Windows Media Player 11 was not positively received. In
addition, the Microsoft Zune does not support the standard Windows Media
DRM system, rendering protected WMV files unplayable. WMV has been the
subject of numerous complaints from users and the press. Users dislike
the digital rights management system which is sometimes attached to WMV
What is 3GP?
Audio and video container format developed by the 3rd Generation Partnership
Project (3GPP). The MP4 and the AVC file format specifications described
usage of MPEG-4 content in the ISO base media file format. Some newer/higher-end
phones without 3G capabilities may also playback and record in this format
(again, with said limitations). The Macintosh type is: 3GPP. The 3GP file
format stores video streams as MPEG-4 Part 2 or H.263 or MPEG-4 Part 10
(AVC/H.264), and audio streams as AMR-NB, AMR-WB, AMR-WB+, AAC-LC, HE-AAC
v1 or Enhanced aacPlus (HE-AAC v2). It stores video streams as MPEG-4 Part
2 or H.263 or MPEG-4 Part 10 (AVC/H.264), and audio streams as AMR-NB,
AMR-WB, AMR-WB+, AAC-LC or HE-AAC. Most 3G capable mobile phones support
the playback and recording of video in 3GP format (memory, maximum filesize
for playback and recording, and resolution limits exist and vary). 3GPP
is based on the MPEG-4 standard which was derived from Apple's QuickTime.
Some cell phones use the .mp4 extension for 3GP video. Audio imported from
CD onto a PlayStation 3 when it is set to encode to the MPEG-4 AAC codec
will copy onto USB devices in the 3GP format. These extensions were registered
by the registration authority for code-points in ISO base media file format
("MP4 Family" files). QuickTime 6.5 includes support for key
components of the 3GPP and 3GPP2 specifications. Designed as a multimedia
format for transmitting audio and video files between 3G cell phones and
over the Internet; commonly used by mobile phones that support video capture.
3GP is defined in the ETSI 3GPP technical specification. The 3GP is structurally
based on the ISO base media file format defined in ISO/IEC 14496-12 - MPEG-4
Part 12, but older versions of the 3GP file format did not use some of
