By Wang Alice Subscribe to RSS | February 21st 2012 | Views:

WMV video format is a great format if you are a Windows user. You will see that everything goes really smooth for this format. All the media players on Windows, the video editors and other applications support this format by default. There are no difficulties or obstacles that you have to face with this file. However, that is completely untrue if you try WMV files on Mac. The scenario will be entirely different. Mac does not support WMV files by default. Therefore you will face a number of difficulties while trying to work with WMV files on Mac.

QuickTime video format for Mac is just like WMV for Windows. There are three formats of QuickTime. They are MP4, MOV and M4V. With these three formats, you will find that everything is going just the way it is supposed to be. But you will again face the same difficulties if you try QuickTime videos on Windows. These two video formats are mutually exclusive on Mac and Windows. So, what do you do to use WMV on Mac?

There are several ways of using WMV files on Mac. You will not have them freshly ready for you. You will have to get some works done to get this done. Let us see the ways.

1.You can download and use the Flip4mac QuickTime Components which is developed by Telestream. Flip4Mac WMV components contain all the options for playing WMV files on mac. With this components package you can play WMV files using QuickTime media player.

2.You can use a Mac based media player that supports WMV format. For that purpose you can use VLC media player. Again, this is a free and open source media player. This media player is developed by Project VideoLan. They have different versions for Windows and Mac. It supports a lot of video formats including WMV. You can use it to play other unsupported video formats on both OS as well. Again, with this media player you can only play the WMV files, you cannot work with them.

3.The third option is to convert WMV to QuickTime Mac. This is by far the best option available to you if you want to use your files with full liberty. If you convert your files to QuickTime, then you can utilize your files fully on Mac. You can play your files and you can use your files in video editors and other applications for whatever purposes you want.

You got to choose a good video converter for the conversion process, otherwise you may get disappointed. What you want is the same video quality, same video, just a different format. But many video formats lower the video quality while converting the format. To avoid such phenomena, you should use the best video converter that is available. Video Converter for Mac by iSkysoft is the most reputed converter that preserves the video quality and provides a lot of video format options for you to use.

If you intend only to play the videos and nothing more, then you can go for any of the first two options. But if you intend to do more than that, you have to use a video converter.
