Eugene, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/03/2014 -- Good news for Apple and other OS users, SDR has recently released a free WMV player that can instantly play any Windows related type files that are only compatible to Windows OS users and those with Windows Media Player as local media player. This is the company's way of bridging users from across the globe with unique and unifying software programs.
Delving into WMV
This video compression technology was introduced by Microsoft in the early millennium decade, specifically 2003.
Since its inception, it has been the main video format of the WMV family and the most recognized competitor to the likes of equally famous MPEG4 and RealVideo formats. Unlike one of its component, the strictly audio-only format WMA, WMV is more versatile and is actually a container file type like the AVI and MKV that can process a lot of other file types in one. It stands for Windows Media Video.
On the other hand, since most of America are users of other types of OS, not all of them are able to handle and play a WMV file in their native players such as QuickTime and Real Player.
SDR's new free WMV player solves this obvious problem so these users can play WMV files without anymore need for hefty conversions from this format into another format that will be recognized by their native media players.
WMV has also achieved international standardization by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers so it's now been adopted for HD DVD and Blu-ray disc technology physical-delivery formats.
