Windows Media Video (WMV) is a compressed video file format for several proprietary codecs developed by Microsoft. A WMV file is in most circumstances encapsulated in the Advanced Systems Format (ASF) container format. The file extension .WMV typically describes ASF files that use Windows Media Video codecs.
However, for Mac users, it’s a little bit head-scratching for them to play WMV files on iPhone because the compatibility of iPhone video supported is not very satisfying. Not every video file can be played on iPhone. i.e.,
iPhone video specifications from Apple's website:
H.264 video: up to 1.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Low-Complexity version of the H.264 Baseline Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats
H.264 video: up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Baseline Profile up to Level 3.0 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats
MPEG-4 video: up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats
As you can see, the iPhone will play back videos encoded using either MPEG-4 or H.264 codecs. So the next question came up: How to convert WMV to iPhone on Mac? Is there any professional Mac WMV to iPhone converter to solve this problem?
