How to Convert WMV to MP4

By Emily Watson, Wednesday, Mar 25, 2015

How to convert WMV to MP4? You may ask this question if you have noticed that a wide range of videos you get from internet are in WMV format, while they cannot be played on your Apple device.

Windows Media Video (WMV), a file format developed by Microsoft, is mostly used for internet streaming and watching videos on Windows Media Player. Also, it can be played on portable media players like Xbox 360 and Creative Zen.

But for Apple customers, including Mac users and iPhone, iPad and iPod users, WMV seems to be a pesky video format. Why? Because WMV format is neither recognizable by the editing program iMovie that Mac users generally use, nor played by the daily used QuickTime Media Player or compatible with Apple devices, like iPhone, iPod, iPad.

If you have some WMV files and want to have a video converter to convert WMV to MP4 to get them work on your iPhone/iPod/iPad, or play on your PSP MP4 player, I humbly recommend FonePaw Video Converter Ultimate. This software is a professional WMV to MP4 converter, which allows you to convert WMV to MP4 easily, so that you can enjoy them on iPad, iPod, iPhone, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Xbox360, Zune, Apple TV, Sony PSP, and many other portable devices.
