Convert ASF to AIFF
ASF to AIFF Converter converts ASF files to
AIFF. The converter focuses on AIFF file that supports almost all codecs
in AIFF specification, for example, pcm 8-bit, pcm 16-bit, pcm 24-bit, pcm 32-bit,
pcm 32-bit float, pcm 64-bit float, a-Law, mu-Law, IEEE 754 float, ima4, gsm,
dwvw, and so on. The software also supports common file format such as M4B (MPEG-4 audiobook), AAC, MMF, M4R (iPhone ringtone), MKA, OGG, WAV, AMR,
etc. It could convert MKA to MMF, MP4 to AAC, VID to MPA, ADTS to MMF, M4R to AMR, DTS to MPA, and so on.
The 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 ASF?
Advanced Systems Format (formerly Advanced Streaming Format, Active Streaming
Format) is Microsoft's proprietary digital audio/digital video container format,
especially meant for streaming media. ASF is part of the Windows Media framework.
ASF is based on serialized objects which are essentially byte sequences identified
by a GUID marker.
The format does not specify how (i.e. with which codec) the video or audio
should be encoded; it just specifies the structure of the video/audio stream.
This is similar to the function performed by the QuickTime, AVI, or Ogg container
formats. One of the objectives of ASF was to support playback from digital media
servers, HTTP servers, and local storage devices such as hard disk drives.
The most common filetypes contained within an ASF file are Windows Media Audio
(WMA) and Windows Media Video (WMV). Note that the file extension abbreviations
are different from the codecs which have the same name. Files containing only
WMA audio can be named using a .WMA extension, and files of audio and video content
may have the extension .WMV. Both may use the .ASF extension if desired.
ASF files can also contain objects representing metadata, such as the artist,
title, album and genre for an audio track, or the director of a video track, much
like the ID3 tags of MP3 files. It supports scalable media types and stream prioritization;
as such, it is a format optimized for streaming.
The ASF container provides the framework for digital rights management in Windows
Media Audio and Windows Media Video. An analysis of an older scheme used in WMA
reveals that it is using a combination of elliptic curve cryptography key exchange,
DES block cipher, a custom block cipher, RC4 stream cipher and the SHA-1 hashing
ASF container-based media is usually streamed on the internet either through
the MMS protocol or the RTSP protocol.
What is AIFF?
Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF) is an audio file format standard used for
storing sound data for personal computers and other electronic audio devices.
The format was co-developed by Apple Computer in 1988 based on Electronic Arts'
Interchange File Format (IFF, widely used on Amiga systems) and is most commonly
used on Apple Macintosh computer systems. AIFF is also used by Silicon Graphics
Incorporated. The audio data in a standard AIFF file is uncompressed big-endian
pulse-code modulation (PCM). There is also a compressed variant of AIFF known
as AIFF-C or AIFC, with various defined compression codecs.
Standard AIFF is a leading format (along with SDII and WAV) used by professional-level
audio and video applications, and unlike the better-known lossy MP3 format, it
is non-compressed (which aids rapid streaming of multiple audio files from disk
to the application), and lossless. Like any non-compressed, lossless format, it
uses much more disk space than MP3¡ªabout 10MB for one minute of stereo
audio at a sample rate of 44.1 kHz and a sample size of 16 bits. In addition to
audio data, AIFF can include loop point data and the musical note of a sample,
for use by hardware samplers and musical applications.
The file extension for the standard AIFF format is .aiff or .aif. For the compressed
variants it is supposed to be .aifc, but .aiff or .aif are accepted as well by
audio applications supporting the format.
