If you are new on Mac and if you have switched from Windows, one of the problem that you will face is the vie formats. On Windows, WMV was like the super easy format that was accepted by all applications. So, naturally you may have a collection of WMV files. When you switch to Mac, you will have trouble with those same WMV files that were once really easy to use. Mac does not support WMV files by default. QuickTime media player does not support this format. So, if you want to work with WMV files, you have to look for other options.

There are a number of options available for working with WMV files on Mac. Let us explore the options one by one.

1.If you want to play WMV files on Mac, then VLC media player is a great solution. VLC media player is an open source freeware developed by Project VideoLan. With this media player installed on your Mac, you can play not only WMV files but other video formats as well which are unsupported by Mac.

2.Alternately you can use Windows Media Player 9 for Mac. It is also a freeware. With this you can play both online streaming WMV files and offline files. But Microsoft is not going to upgrade it further, so there might be problems with the upgraded versions of Mac.

3.You can use Flip4mac WMV Components. With these components, you can play WMV files using QuickTime media player. They are a collection of video components which, when installed can use QuickTime media player to play WMV files on Mac.

4.The best option for using WMV on Mac is to convert WMV files to QuickTime formats. There are three QuickTime formats which are MP4, MOV and M4V. You can convert WMV files to any of those video formats and you will not face any more problems.

To convert WMV files you will require a good video converter. Video Converter for Mac by iSkysoft is a great converter that you can use. It has a long list of supporting video formats. With a list that long, you can convert between video format to make them appropriate for any applications or devices.

The great thing about this converter is that it is very much user friendly. The user interface is designed for amateurs. You do not need to be a tech savvy person to operate this tool. But if you are one, then you also have a lot of options to tweak.

When you convert your videos, you get a lot of options in your hand. You can play it, you can edit it, and you can use it in other applications as well. It opens a lot of doors for you. You got be careful about the video quality though. Some video converters lower the video quality during the conversion process. Such is not the case for Video Converter for mac by iSkysoft. It keeps the quality as it is.

If you intend only to play the WMV files, then any of the first three options will do. But if you want to do more than that, converting the WMV format to one of the QuickTime format is the best options.
