Convert WMV to ALAC
WMV to ALAC Conversion Software converts WMV
files to ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec). With a simple and use-to-use
interface, the conversion from WMV to ALAC is as easy as 1-2-3. You don't
need to know professional knowledge of WMV and ALAC. The converter also support
common formats such as AMR, MP2, MMF, WMA, AU, FLAC, MPA, M4A (MPEG-4 audio), etc. It could convert FLAC to AMR, VOB to M4R (iPhone ringtone), M4V to M4B (MPEG-4 audiobook), 3GP to MMF, M4B to AWB, AVI to AMR, and so
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 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 ALAC?
Apple Lossless (also known as Apple Lossless Encoder, ALE,
or Apple Lossless Audio Codec, ALAC) is an audio codec developed by Apple
Inc. for lossless data compression of digital music.
Apple Lossless data is stored within an MP4 container with the filename extension
.m4a. It is not a variant of AAC, but uses linear prediction similar to other
lossless codecs such as FLAC and Shorten. iPod players with a dock connector (not
the Shuffle) and recent firmware can play Apple Lossless-encoded files. It does
not utilize any digital rights management (DRM) scheme, but by the nature of the
container, it is thought that DRM can be applied to ALAC much the same way it
can with other files in QuickTime containers.
