What are MP4 and WMV?
MP4
Developed by Moving Picture Experts Group. MP4 is a shortened name for MPEG-4. And it is a method of defining compression of audio and visual (AV) digital data. Also, it’s the most commonly used to store digital video and digital audio streams, as well as other data such as subtitles and still images.

WMV
Developed by Microsoft. WMV is a shortened name for Windows Media Video, which is a derivative of the MPEG-4 format and aims to duplicate and improve its functionality for users of Microsoft software and hardware. WMV provide is a good way for saving video format with great quality.

Pros for both video formats
MP4:
Better in video quality than WMV;
Supported by almost all OS, players & mobile devices;
Commonly used for sharing video files online;
WMV:
Smaller in file size than MP4;
Well compatible with any Windows PC;

That’s Why We Need a Video Converter!
WMV is not compatible with Mac or iMovie can not import MP4 files for some reasons. FonePaw Video Converter Ultimate may be your needed one to help you convert videos between all popular video formats.
