WMV, acronym for Windows Media Video, is regarded as a streaming media format introduced by Microsoft in 1999. Although WMV most often refers to a container file, it typically can refer to both a container file and a video codec. That means when you're seeing a WMV file, actually an audio file, a video file and the container file (the WMV) are in use. So audio and video codecs are being used but any video player plays a WMV file will be able to play the file.

WMV has many advantages in spite of being an older file format. The size of WMV file tends to be quite same considering the same video quality, so it’s suitable for playback and transmission online.
