Windows Media Audio File

Description

A format of audio stream coding deployed by Microsoft in 1999, it has been serving as a foundation for Windows Media. Its purpose is to store and distribute audio content. Firstly, it was considered as a real alternative for MP3, but then, when ACC appeared, WMA lost partially its significance. It differs fundamentally from MP3 by one realization, and can be installed on an equal basis with other system codecs of Windows 9x.

WMA is characterized by a good compression quality, and therefore it has been adapted later for many audio players, mobile devices, and Playstations. However, due to excessive closure, files in this format cannot be played back on other platforms with satisfactory quality. The new version allows for multi-channel coding of large audio files and coding of voice data. In addition to that, the delay in coding has been significantly diminished thanks to the technology of reduced time dilation.

Technical details

The name of WMA is being used simultaneously for the file format and the codec. There are some types of the format:

  • - WMA, a close analog for MP3;
  • - WMA Pro, high quality sound files with wide range of channels;
  • - WMA Lossless, for lossless compression;
  • - WMA Voice, for compression of voice content into low bitrate files.

According to Microsoft programmers, an audio file of 64 Kbit/s bitrate has a similar sound clarity as the tracks from the original CD. However, some of advanced users do not share such views. Most often, WMA files are generated in Advanced Systems Format which contains both audio and video content. One of the failures is the impossibility to support bitrate of more than 160Kbit/s.

Opus Audio File

File extension
.opus
File category
Description

The format has been created by IETF community for online broadcasting and is being used for lossy compression of audio data. It provides with excellent quality of sound and very good compression level due to the technology of dynamically adjusted streaming. Being a key audio codec of Skype, OPUS is based on the Skype message-transfer algorithms. As a container, they use .ogg extension.

Technical details

The format uses CELT and SILK codecs, which allow easy change of bitrate within the range of 6-510 Kbit/s. That is why it has gained prevalence in video chats and video conferences, as well as IP translations.
