WMV on iTunes

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
In Windows, I found that any wmv music file was automatically converted to aac. However, my Mac's iTunes doesn't seem to register I've tried to open a wmv file at all. Are the programs different?

Yes they are different. iTunes on Apple doesn't convert WMA files. iTunes on Windows does.

iTunes on Mac OS X has no WMA support of its own. You could install QuickTime components to read WindowsMedia files, such as Flip4Mac, and then you could use the files in iTunes and/or convert them.

Thanks for the suggestion. I just found a wma file that I've been searching for for weeks (why do people not enjoy Celtic music more than the top 40?) and can't listen to it yet, lol. I'll get on that right away!

Edit:

Okay, downloaded and installed, great! Is there a way to play it on iTunes? When I open it it opens with Quicktime. *fiddles*

If QuickTime Player can play it, so can iTunes. Just add it.
