|Description||🔵 Like the MKV file extension, the WEBM royalty-free extension is developed by various online parties such as Google. It is a freeware offering streaming of online video content. It was first developed in 2010. By using the HTML5 version of YouTube, one can watch videos encoded in WEBM.|
|Technical details||🔵 Encoding and decoding in open-source WEBM video format are possible while using the ffvp8 software or libvpx from the Google support. When it comes to the Android, support a version of 2.3 (Gingerbread) and above, allowing playback of WEBM format can be used for encoding and decoding. Back in 2001, using Rockchip, a full hardware implementation of 1080p VO8 encoding was made possible. The video element of the file is encoded using VP8 video codec, and the audio component of the file is encoded using the Vorbis audio codec. It provides open video compression for HTML5 videos, and most major web browsers support WebM as a part of HTML5 video delivery. However, some programs like Quicktime and browsers like Internet Explorer and Safari do not have native WebM support. Fortunately, the Google WebM Project Team released plugins for Internet Explorer and Safari in 2011 to allow WebM files' playback through the standard HTML5 video tag.|

WAV is the simplest audio format developed in the early 1990s by Microsoft and IBM. It is a lossless formula which often means large file size.
WAV files sound better than MP3s because they are lossless and uncompressed, providing uncompromised audio quality ideal for broadcast CD music, TV and radio. They are designed to store audio bit stream on CD and tend to be larger than most audio file formats. WAV files aren’t compressed and retain all elements of the original sound, making them perfect for sound processing in DAWs

How to create and how to open an WAV file
There are many ways to create a WAV and virtually all digital audio workstations used by beat and music composers record and save using the WAV format. You can also convert other audio files to WAV and vice versa. To create a Wav file, simply open the audio in any program that supports the format and save. Recording tools and apps also render in WAV.
Virtually all players that support MP3s also support WAV, so opening a WAV audio file should be effortless. Windows and Mac users can open WAV files using VLC, local media players, audio editors, online converters and players, DAWs and more. You can also play WAV files using the native player that comes with your Android and iOS smartphone.
Which other formats WAV can be converted into and why
As the simplest audio file format, WAV can be converted to almost any audio format. You can also convert other audio files to WAV. Here are the common conversions.
WAV to MP3 conversions are the most popular among portable device users and streamers. WAV files are uncompressed and lossless, so they tend to be very large, making them impractical for streaming and carrying in portable devices with limited storage. As such, most people convert WAV to MP3 files, which are up to 10 times smaller.
As lossless file formats, WAVs offer the best sound quality and retain all elements, including reverbs, guitar sounds and transients. They are the perfect format for music composers, producers and sound designers. They are also supported by many platforms and programs, so you won’t have to convert to another format. However, you’ll probably need to compress them when sending, streaming to save space and bandwidth.
