WMV files can be facilitated by a variety of Operating Systems such as Mac as well as the PC. A few WMV files also have the digits right management (DRM) protection, so unauthorized can't make copies of the recordings, basically the ones purchased from an online store.
Technical details
The exclusive codecs developed by Microsoft can be obtained while a WMV file is compressed. Users can use Windows Media Video 9 Professional. 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.

It is a RAW format which you can later flip and separate based on needed data tracks.
Technical details
Whether it is video, audio, subtitle, or image, every file will be stored in a separate data line. It is a lot similar to the MP4 or AVI format, although when users are packaging an MKV file, they rarely bundle all the tracks within the file. Various media players don't even support the MKV video format; therefore, the users need to use specialized media players who can help the MKV format, such as VLC media player.
