WMV for Mac - Read before Opening or Playing WMV on Mac

By Wang Alice Subscribe to RSS | February 20th 2012 | Views:

You will be very comfortable to use WMV files on Windows OS (operating System). The reason is, WMV is a default video format in that platform. Windows Media Player, Windows Movie Maker and other applications all support this format. So everything just happens smoothly without causing any trouble. However, if you try those same WMV files on Mac, the result will be entirely different.

Mac, by default does not support WMV files. Mac supports QuickTime video formats. There are three QuickTime video formats that Mac uses widely. The formats are MOV, MP4 and M4V. But, WMV is not a format that Mac supports.

If you are a Mac user who happens to have some WMV files that need playing or editing, you will require alternate methods to follow. There are a number of options that you can use. Let us explore the alternatives.

1.QuickTime media player will not play WMV files, so you can try other media players. VLC media player is an excellent media player that supports all popular video formats and many other not so popular video formats. VLC media player is a freeware by Project VideoLan. You can download it for free. They have different versions for different OS, so you will not have any trouble finding a Mac version. However, with this player you can only play the WMV files. You cannot edit them.

2.If you do not want to use a different media player, then there is another option. You may want the default QuickTime media player to play those WMV files. But QuickTime does not support WMV files. So, you need Flip4Mac QuickTime Component to make QuickTime media player play WMV files.

3.The best way to work with WMV on Mac is to adjust WMV for Mac. How do you adjust WMV files for Mac? You have to convert WMV format to one of the QuickTime video format. When you do so, you will see that everything is going smooth as butter. You can play and edit and work with the video files just the way you want. To convert WMV for Mac, you will need a good video converter.

Many may feel that video converting is a very hard job. Many may feel that there are technical tasks required that only the professionals can perform. That is not true. You can convert between your desired formats with just a few clicks. You do not need to know any technical detail. You do not need to be professional. iSkysoft Video Converter for Mac is designed as such that both professionals and non-professionals can comfortably work with it.

It is a great converter which features a lot of cool options. Besides the user friendly interface, it supports a wide range of video format. You can just take your pick and convert the videos. It also strictly maintains the video quality.

A video converter is best if you plan to edit your videos. Otherwise you can just use the other two options. But video converters give you much more control.
