WMV to AC3 Conversion Software converts WMV
files to AC3 fast. The converter is a multiple channels encoder. The software
supports 2.1, 4.0, 4.1, 5.1, 6.1, and 7.1 channels encoding for AAC, AC3, AIFF,
AU, FLAC, OGG, and WAV files. The software also supports common file format such
as M4A (MPEG-4 audio), AAC for iPod/iPhone/iPad/iTunes/DSi, M4R (iPhone ringtone), OGG, MPA, MP3, AAC, MP2, etc. It could convert MPGA to AU, MP4 to OGG, W64 to MPA, FLV to AAC, MP2 to AAC for iPod/iPhone/iPad/iTunes/DSi, MLP to FLAC, and so on.
The WMV to AC3 Conversion Software is very easy
to use and supports batch conversion. It is full compatible
with 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/2000.
What is WMV?
Windows Media Video (WMV) is a compressed video file format for several proprietary
codecs developed by Microsoft. The original codec, known as WMV, was originally
designed for Internet streaming applications, as a competitor to RealVideo. The
other codecs, such as WMV Screen and WMV Image, cater for specialized content.
Through standardization from the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers
(SMPTE), WMV has gained adoption for physical-delivery formats such as HD DVD
and Blu-ray Disc.
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. The audio codec used in conjunction with
Windows Media Video is typically some version of Windows Media Audio, or in rarer
cases, the deprecated Sipro ACELP.net audio codec. Microsoft recommends that ASF
files containing non-Windows Media codecs use the generic .ASF file extension.
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.
Although WMV is generally packed into the ASF container format, it can also
be put into the AVI or Matroska container format. The resulting files have the
.AVI and .MKV file extensions, respectively. WMV can be stored in an AVI file
when using the WMV 9 Video Compression Manager (VCM) codec implementation. Another
common way to store WMV in an AVI file is to use the VirtualDub encoder.
Windows Media Video (WMV) is the most recognized video format within the WMV
family. Usage of the term WMV often refers to the Microsoft Windows Media Video
codec only. Its main competitors are MPEG-4 AVC, AVS, RealVideo, DivX, and Xvid.
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. While all versions of WMV support variable bit rate, average bit rate,
and constant bit rate, WMV 9 introduced several important features including native
support for interlaced video, non-square pixels, and frame interpolation. 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, 640x480 or 768x432 and beyond) and the bitrate 1000 kbit/s. It
is targeted towards high-definition video content, at resolutions such as 720p
What is AC3?
Dolby Digital, or AC-3, is the common version containing up to six discrete channels
of sound. The most elaborate mode in common usage involves five channels for normal-range
speakers (20 Hz - 20,000 Hz) (right front, center, left front, right rear and
left rear) and one channel (20 Hz - 120 Hz) for the subwoofer driven low-frequency
effects. Mono and stereo modes are also supported. AC-3 supports audio sample-rates
up to 48kHz. Batman Returns was the first film to use Dolby Digital technology
when it premiered in theaters in Summer 1992. The LaserDisc version of Clear and
Present Danger featured the first Home theater Dolby Digital mix in 1995.
