Got some WVM files, but Windows can't open and play it. In this article, I will present the possible ways to convert and play WVM files with ease.
WVM is a video downloaded from Google play movies and is a type of mpeg-4 video file. It is currently unable to be opened by anything other than the Google play movies app. In order to play WVM on iPhone, iPad, Samsung, TV, Xbox, PS3/PS4, Plex, etc easily, we need to convert WVM to MP4 or any other common video format first. Here are two main solutions for you.
Searching online, we found some guys have the confusion: Can I simply change the extension of WVM files? Well, based on our experience, changing the filename extension of a file is not a good idea. When you change a file's extension, you change the way programs on your computer read the file. The problem is, changing the file extension does not change the file format. Media player, portable devices still can't handle. An ultimate solution is to convert WVM to MP4 with a professional video converter for more usages freely.
Solution 1. Handbrake
Handbrake has been around for over ten years and remains one of the best applications out there for transcoding video files from one format to another. Handbrake is open source and completely free of any attached strings or shady offers; you only get what you download, nothing else.
How to Convert WVM to MP4 Using Handbrake
1. The first thing we do then is select our source. Click the “Source” button and choose “Open File” from the dropdown choices. Browse your file system to where the troublesome file is located, select it, and click “Open.”
2. For this operation, we’re making no adjustments to anything in the Output Settings. This is a straight conversion from .WVM to .MP4, so we’ll leave the container setting as is.
3. Click “Browse” for our file Destination, choose a location for our new file, as well as give it a fitting name. We’ll go ahead and save the file in the same location as our source and click “Save.”
4. Back on Handbrake’s main window, we give our transcoding job one more look and click “Start.”
Depending now upon your computer’s speed and the size of the file, this operation could take a few minutes or a few hours. You can note Handbrake’s progress at the bottom of the application window. When our file is done, you can play this file on virtually any video player, phone, tablet, and, of course, cast it to our big screen TV in the living room!
Editor's Note: Handbrake simply can’t be topped when converting files to MP4 or MKV format, but it also isn’t for beginners unwilling to learn the software.
