How to Convert MOV to WMV
There are dozens of media codecs and containers out there, because every technology company wants to create the next standard file format for video and audio compression. As a result, incompatibility between files and playback software or devices is a widespread problem, not just for movie fans and video bloggers but for regular users as well.
The MOV video format, which was developed by Apple for its QuickTime Player, sometimes comes into conflict with Windows-based PCs and devices if the required codecs are not installed. The easiest solution is to convert MOV files into WMV (Windows Media Video) format, which was designed by Microsoft. To do this, all you need is Movavi Video Converter, which converts files from MOV to WMV and WMV to MOV plus many other formats as well. The software supports most file types and codecs, so you can forget about problems with incompatibility.
