WMV is a common video file format developed by Microsoft and designed to store or transfer video data. It takes its name from the abbreviation of the name of the Windows Media Video technology itself, with which the file is encoded. Codecs for WMV format are installed automatically along with any version of the Windows operating system. Playing WMV files is possible on almost any media player. Such files may contain both Windows Media Video video data and Windows Media Audio audio data. The format also supports the use of DRM protections to prevent copying.
WebM is an open multimedia file format developed by Google's IT giant. It was first introduced by the developer on May 19, 2010 at the Google I / O conference. Typically, WebM files store video with compression using VP8 technology, as well as audio with compression using Ogg Vorbis compression. The initial developer of VP8 technology is ON2, which Google later acquired. WebM format provides efficient compression and high quality video. The format is supported by Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera. When installing the necessary codecs in Windows, this format is also supported in Internet Explorer.
