What is WMV?
Windows Media (WMV) is a file type which can contain video in one of several video
compression formats developed by Microsoft. The original video format, known as
WMV, was originally designed for Internet streaming applications, as a competitor
to RealVideo. The other formats, such as WMV Screen and WMV Image, cater for specialized
content. Through standardization from the Society of Motion Picture and Television
Engineers (SMPTE), WMV 9 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. The audio format 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 format. Microsoft recommends that ASF files
containing non-Windows Media formats use the generic .ASF file extension.
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
format only. Its main competitors are MPEG-4 AVC, AVS, RealVideo, and MPEG-4 ASP.
The first version of the format, 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 format, 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 MP3?
MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III, more commonly referred to as MP3, is an audio
coding format for digital audio which uses a form of lossy data compression. It
is a common audio format for consumer audio streaming or storage, as well as a
de facto standard of digital audio compression for the transfer and playback of
music on most digital audio players.
MP3 is an audio-specific format that was designed by the Moving Picture Experts
Group (MPEG) as part of its MPEG-1 standard and later extended in the MPEG-2 standard.
The first MPEG subgroup - Audio group was formed by several teams of engineers
at Fraunhofer IIS, University of Hannover, AT&T-Bell Labs, Thomson-Brandt,
CCETT, and others. MPEG-1 Audio (MPEG-1 Part 3), which included MPEG-1 Audio Layer
I, II and III was approved as a committee draft of ISO/IEC standard in 1991, finalised
in 1992 and published in 1993 (ISO/IEC 11172-3:1993). Backwards compatible MPEG-2
Audio (MPEG-2 Part 3) with additional bit rates and sample rates was published
in 1995 (ISO/IEC 13818-3:1995).
The use in MP3 of a lossy compression algorithm is designed to greatly reduce
the amount of data required to represent the audio recording and still sound like
a faithful reproduction of the original uncompressed audio for most listeners.
An MP3 file that is created using the setting of 128 kbit/s will result in a file
that is about 1/11 the size of the CD file created from the original audio source.
An MP3 file can also be constructed at higher or lower bit rates, with higher
or lower resulting quality.
