What is WMV?
A WMV file is the name commonly used for Windows Media Video files, which
are developed by Microsoft and compatible with all Windows operating systems.
This file is also found as a video/audio file on the Xbox. A number of
programs capture this file extension. While none of the WMV codecs themselves
contain any digital rights management facilities, the ASF container format,
in which a WMV stream may be encapsulated, can. Windows Media DRM, which
can be used in conjunction with WMV, supports time-limited subscription
video services such as those offered by CinemaNow. Windows Media DRM, a
component of PlaysForSure and Windows Media Connect, is supported on many
modern portable video devices and streaming media clients such as the Xbox
360. The first version of the codec, WMV 7, was introduced in 1999, and
was built upon Microsoft's implementation of MPEG-4 Part 2. Continued proprietary
development led to newer versions of the codec, but the bit stream syntax
was not frozen until WMV 9. In the past, computer users have been known
to have difficulties opening these files due to a flaw in Windows Media
Player or the WMV file. These issues have since been resolved with the
newer versions of Windows Media Player and other similar media players.
WMV files should now open and play with ease. Its main competitors are
MPEG-4 AVC, AVS, RealVideo, and MPEG-4 ASP. Usage of the term WMV often
refers to the Microsoft Windows Media Video codec only. The ASF container
can optionally support digital rights management using a combination of
elliptic curve cryptography key exchange, DES block cipher, a custom block
cipher, RC4 stream cipher and the SHA-1 hashing function.
What is Android?
Android is a Linux-based mobile phone operating system developed by Google.
Android is unique because Google is actively developing the platform but
giving it away for free to hardware manufacturers and phone carriers who
want to use Android on their devices. An Android phone, sometimes called
a Droid phone, is a mobile telephone that uses the Google-developed Android
operating system. This operating system has become a popular option in
recent years for so-called "smart phones," because developers
and manufacturers may freely customize it to their specific needs. In contrast
to desktop Linux distributions, Android device owners are not given root
access to the operating system and sensitive partitions such as /system
are read-only. However, root access can be obtained by exploiting security
flaws in Android, which is used frequently by the open source community
to enhance the capabilities of their devices, but also by malicious parties
to install viruses and malware. Some comparable devices using other operating
systems are governed by strict proprietary rules. Developers interested
in writing applications for the iPhone, for example, may not be permitted
to create programs that closely mirror applications owned by Apple, such
as iTunes. Google formed a group of hardware, software, and telecommunication
companies called the Open Handset Alliance with the goal of contributing
to Android development. Most members also have the goal of making money
from Android, either by selling phones, phone service, or mobile applications.
Android is a mobile operating system or OS, which is basically the software
that runs on a number of mobile devices -- generally mobile phones and
tablets. The Android operating system is developed by Google and a collaboration
of companies called the Open Handset Alliance (OHA).
