Convert WMV to FLAC
WMV to FLAC Conversion Software converts WMV
files to FLAC and keeps ID3 tag. The converter offers many
useful features. For example, automatically normalizes volume of WMV and FLAC
so that all output files have the same volume; skips the first X milliseconds
of WMV and FLAC files when converting; only converts X milliseconds of WMV
and FLAC files; joins multiple files to one file. The converter also convert files
to popular formats such as WAV, AC3, AU, M4A (MPEG-4 audio), AAC, M4R (iPhone ringtone), AWB, VOC, etc. It could convert MKV to M4B (MPEG-4 audiobook), VOB to AC3, M2TS to OGG, SHN to AAC, VOB to MMF, MPC to M4B (MPEG-4 audiobook), and
The software is very easy to use and supports batch conversion.
It is full compatible with Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/2000 including both 32-bit
and 64-bit editions.
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 FLAC?
Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) is a file format for lossless audio data compression.
Being lossless, FLAC does not remove information from the audio stream, as lossy
compression formats such as MP3, AAC, and Vorbis do. FLAC's primary author is
Josh Coalson. FLAC reduces bandwidth and storage requirements without sacrificing
the integrity of the audio source. A digital audio recording (such as a CD track)
encoded to FLAC can be decompressed into an identical copy of the audio data.
Audio sources encoded to FLAC are typically reduced in size 40 to 50 percent (46%
according to their own comparison). FLAC is suitable for everyday audio playback
and archival, with support for tagging, cover art and fast seeking. FLAC's free
and open source royalty-free nature makes it well-supported by many software applications,
but FLAC playback support in portable audio devices and dedicated audio systems
is limited at this time.
