How to Convert MP4 to WMV Format?
Windows Media Video (WMV) is a video compression format for several proprietary codecs developed by Microsoft. WMV is a mandatory video codec for PlaysForSure-certified online stores and devices, as well as Portable Media Center devices. The Microsoft Zune, Xbox 360, Windows Mobile-powered devices with Windows Media Player, as well as many uncertified devices, support the codec. WMV used to be the only supported video codec for the Microsoft Silverlight platform, but H.264 codec is now also supported starting with version 3. Software that can play WMV files include Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, MPlayer, The KMPlayer, Media Player Classic and VLC Media Player.
