What is MOV?
An MOV file is a video file in QuickTime File Format – a file container format created by Apple. The MOV file type is mainly used for playback on Apple devices. You can also play MOV videos on other devices if they support the codecs used in the file. If you’re wondering how to open an MOV file, see the list of associated programs below.
MOV files store video, audio, and text data in separate tracks. The video codecs used in MOV files are MPEG-4, H.264, MJPEG, Sorenson 1/3, AIC, ProRes, CineForm, and others. Audio codecs you can find in MOV files include AAC, AC3, MP3, and ALAC. The QuickTime File Format specification served as the basis for the MPEG-4 format.

What is WMA?
Windows Media Audio
Windows Media Audio, often referred to as WMA, is an older audio format created by Microsoft in 1999. The WMA file type provides better sound quality at lower bitrates than MP3, which results in smaller files. WMA audio tracks can be something of a headache to deal with because most media players and mobile devices no longer support playback. If you want to play WMAs on a non-Windows computer, it would be a good idea to change the file to a more common format. If you’d like to know how to open WMA files and more about the common specifications, check the table below.
Each WMA file has one audio track in one of four sub-formats: WMA, WMA Voice, WMA Lossless, or WMA Pro. WMA files are usually contained in the Advanced Systems Format, which is used for storing digital audio and video data. WMA is capable of sampling rates up to 48 kHz with a maximum number of stereo audio channels. In version 9.1 of the WMA format, the encoding latency is significantly reduced due to the use of a reduced latency method.
