How to Transfer WMV to MP4 Format (or MP4 to WMV)
WMV (Windows Media Video) format supports a lossless video compression to keep file size small and maintain high-quality playback result. However, WMV videos don't work with video programs on Mac computers. the QuickTime player can't recognize your WMV files and you are unable to organize WMV in iTunes, or even edit them in iMovie, Final Cut Pro, iDVD etc. So if you would like to watch your favorite movies on your iPhone, iPad or use with Mac OS and iOS , you need to convert WMV to MP4 for Mac to create a total compatible format.
