What is WMV?
WMV is short for Windows Media Video. This video format was developed by
Microsoft upon non-standard version of MPEG-4. But as WMV was standardized
as an independent SMPTE standard and is considered to be a unique format
now. Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3 video game consoles
can also play WMV HD. Microsoft recommends that ASF files containing non-Windows
Media codecs use the generic .ASF file extension. This file is also found
as a video/audio file on the Xbox. A number of programs capture this file
extension. One of the uses for the codec is computer step-by-step demonstration
videos. The first version of the codec was WMV 7 Screen, The second and
current version, WMV 9 Screen, supports VBR encoding in addition to CBR.
WMV used to be the only supported video codec for the Microsoft Silverlight
platform, but H.264 codec is now also supported starting with version 3.
Software that can play WMV files include Windows Media Player, RealPlayer,
MPlayer, The KMPlayer, Media Player Classic and VLC Media Player. The Microsoft
Zune media management software supports the WMV codec, but uses a Zune-specific
variation of Windows Media DRM which is used by PlaysForSure. Many third-party
players exist for various platforms such as Linux that use the FFmpeg implementation
of the WMV codecs. File format based in ASF (Advanced Systems Format) that
wraps a video bitstream. This web site documents versions of the format
that contain bitstreams encoded by Windows Media Video 9, which is also
known as VC-9. Some WMV files may also employ Windows Media Video 7 and
8 codecs. Windows Media Video HD can be encoded with a variety of programs
such as Windows Media Encoder, Windows Movie Maker, and Microsoft Expression
What is MOV?
MOV is a file extension used by the QuickTime-wrapped files. The format
was created by Apple Computer to work with multimedia files. MOV video
file is common multimedia format often used for saving movies and other
video files, uses a proprietary compression algorithm developed by Apple
Computer, compatible with both Macintosh and Windows platforms.The format
specifies a multimedia container file that contains one or more tracks,
each of which stores a particular type of data: audio, video, effects,
or text (e.g. for subtitles). However, MOV files can become very large,
as they contain video, audio, text, effects and other information that
make the media engaging. It is a proprietary format, but playable on both
Apple and Windows-based computers. Apple provides a version of QuickTime
for free (and is automatically installed with the latest versions of iTunes)
that can easily handle the MOV video files. Tracks are maintained in a
hierarchical data structure consisting of objects called atoms. An atom
can be a parent to other atoms or it can contain media or edit data, but
it cannot do both. As a multimedia stardand, QuickTime is not purely linear.
It could contain interactivity and causes problems when converting to other
video formats. A more recent version, QuickTime X, is currently available
on Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Lion, and Mountain Lion. These files will also
play on video iPods, such as the iPod Touch. If you're emailing a clip
or simply need more storage space, set the preferences for files that use
the MOV extension to make the most efficient use of your storage space.
QuickTime enables file compression by modifying video, effects and audio
