WMV file works fine on Window platform. If you want to open wmv file in Mac OS X, you need to install third party software. Here i introduce u a free software that open wmv file in Mac OS X.
FYI, WMV also known as Window Media Video file and of course wmv file can be easily open in Ms Window Media Player. If you using Mac OS X, then you need some work around to open the wmv file.
To open wmv file in Mac OS X, follow the steps below:-
- Click here to Download and install VLC Player
VLC Player is an open source media player that play almost all kind of video and audio format.
- Once you installed, you can try to open wmv file with VLC player. It should work fine by now
Here’s the alternative way to open wmv file in Mac OS X:-
- Click here to download and install Window Media Component for Quick Time (develop by Microsoft)
- Once you installed, you will be able to play wmv file in Mac thru Quick Time
Since i tried both methods, I perfer VLC player to play wmv file, the reason because it’s more stable and it’s light weight. On the other hand, Window Media Component for Quick Time is a bit heavy (due to Quick Time) and unstable at the time (few months back) i tested to open wmv file.
