Do you want to convert WMV to MP3? If the answer is Yes, you can check my article.
The WMV (Windows Media Video) is a series of video codecs and their corresponding video coding formats developed by Microsoft.
The MP3 is an audio coding format for digital audio. MP3 uses audio compression technology to compress sound into a smaller file with a compression ratio of 1:10 or even 1:12, which can maintain good sound quality.
The WMA is the audio compression file format developed by Microsoft too.
1). At the same bitrate, such as 128Kbps, the sound value of WMA is slightly better than MP3.
2). At low data rates, WMA sound quality is much higher than MP3. For example, at 64Kbps-WMA provides almost the same audio effect as at 128Kbps, while MP3 has an obvious difference. At 32Kbps, WMA is still audible while MP3 is absolutely inaudible.
3). WMA is less popular than MP3 on mobile devices. MP3 can be compatible with computer, Android phone, iPhone, iPad…
In summary, WMA mainly improves the playback of high frequency signals at very low data rates. However, when the data rate is greater than 128Kbps, WMA has no advantage compared with MP3, and the high frequency distortion is more serious.
But the choice is in your hands, you can also choose to convert WMV to WMA according to your needs.
