What is WMV?
Video file based on the Microsoft Advanced Systems Format (ASF) container format and compressed with Windows Media compression; similar to an .ASF file and contains video encoded with one of Microsoft's Windows Media Video (WMV) proprietary codecs. The licensing terms of DRM protected titles are determined by the content providers and not Microsoft Corporation. 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, 640*480 or 768x432 and beyond) and the bitrate 1000 kbit/s. It is targeted towards high-definition video content, at resolutions such as 720p and 1080p. One of the uses for the codec is computer step-by-step demonstration videos. The first version of the codec was WMV 7 Screen, The second and current version, WMV 9 Screen, supports VBR encoding in addition to CBR. Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3 video game consoles can also play WMV HD. Microsoft recommends that ASF files containing non-Windows Media codecs use the generic .ASF file extension. Usage of the term WMV often refers to the Microsoft Windows Media Video codec only. This file is also found as a video/audio file on the Xbox. A number of programs capture this file extension. In the past, computer users have been known to have difficulties opening these files due to a flaw in Windows Media Player or the WMV file. These issues have since been resolved with the newer versions of Windows Media Player and other similar media players. WMV files should now open and play with ease. Since no known domestic DVD player supports this format, users of Photo Story 3 wishing to generate material capable of being played in a DVD player will first have to convert to MPEG-2 before burning a DVD (average file sizes in MPEG-2 are 5 to 6 times the .wmv file).

GIF SampleWhat is GIF?
One of the widely used formats for representing images on the Internet is CompuServe's GIF, or graphics interchange format. An image file, like any other computer file, is a collection of bits. There are a number of different data block categories, and each of the various defined blocks falls into one of these categories. In GIF terminology, a Graphics Control Extension block is a type of Graphics Control block, for instance. In like manner, Plain Text Extension blocks and the Local Image Descriptor are types of Graphic Rendering blocks. The bitmap data is an Image Data block. Comment Extension and Application Extension blocks are types of Special Purpose blocks. The vast majority of GIF files contain 16-color or 256-color near-photographic quality images. Gray-scale images, such as those produced by scanners, are also commonly stored using GIF, although monochrome graphics, such as clip art and document images, rarely are. Although the bulk of GIF files are found in the Intel-based MS-DOS environment, GIF is not associated with any particular software application. GIF also was not created for any particular software application need, although most software applications that read and write graphical image data, such as paint programs, scanner and video software, and most image file display and conversion programs, usually support GIF. GIF was instead intended to allow the easy interchange and viewing of image data stored on local or remote computer systems. GIF files do NOT store the image's scaled resolution ppi number, so scaling is necessary every time one is printed. This is of no importance for screen or web images. GIF file format was designed for CompuServe screens, and screens don't use ppi for any purpose. Our printers didn't print images in 1987, so it was useless information, and CompuServe simply didn't bother to store the printing resolution in GIF files.
