Microsoft’s proprietary architecture for audio and video on the PC. It’s based on a collection of codecs which can be used by the WindowsMedia Player to play files encoded in any supported format. There are 3 released of the WindowsMedia codec architecture: version 7, 8 and 9. Those codecs are natively supported by the corresponding media player version (Windows Media Player 7, Windows Media Player 8 supports WMV8, and Windows Media Player 9 supports WMV9), but you can also find codecs pack for download at microsoft.com to play such content outside the official Microsoft media player.
