Windows Media Video (WMV) is a video compression format for several proprietary codecs developed by Microsoft. Accordingly, WMV videos are well supported by Windows platform, including PC, Xbox, Windows Phone 7, etc. As a competitor, Apple’s Mac OS X does not originally support WMV playback without the external codec tool (like Perian), neither does iOS. Thus, it’s not available to play WMV movies directly on iPhone 4S or other iOS devices. We need some tool to transfer them to iOS-supported formats, such as MOV or MP4. Foxreal Video Converter for Mac is an ideal choice for converting a WMV video.
There are only a few steps for the task(illustrated on Mac OS X Lion):
1. Install and open Foxreal Video Converter for Mac. Click the Add video icon to import the source file.
2. Click Settings and choose the preset of iPhone 4 H.264. Any video size would be all right. Click OK once you finished.
3. Select output directory and click convert button to start conversion.
4. Once finished, add the converted video file to iTunes library and sync with the iPhone 4S. Then start to enjoy the movie.
