It allows them to play their respective file at resolutions surpassing 300,000 pixels (having a screen resolution as low as 528x576) with an exceptional bit rate of 1000 Kbit/s. The high definition abilities make WMV files an ideal choice for HD DVD and Blu-ray disks. WMV 9 format is the one you should be looking for, and it is also comparable to H.264 Main and High Profile. It does not support various activities, such as multiple reference frames and context-adaptive binary arithmetic coding (CABAC). Lower bit-rates can reveal the differences between WMV and its competitors.
