How to Play WMV in iTunes
Can't play WMV in iTunes? Yeah, iTunes is not the friendly application when it comes to playing videos in formats like WMV etc. The iTunes supported video formats only include QuickTime and MPEG-4, whose files end in ".mov", ".m4v", or ".mp4". Usually, only when a video can be played in Apple own QuickTime player, it can be added to iTunes. So it’s reasonable for iTunes not to be compatible with WMV, a video format developed by Apple main rival — Microsoft.
That’s why our product Wondershare Video Converter ( Video Converter for Mac ) comes. It enables you to convert WMV to iTunes supported video formats in minutes, so that you can play WMV in iTunes without any hassle. The guide below will show you how to resolve WMV incompatibility with iTunes.
1 Add WMV files
Use any one of the three ways below to do this job:
- Hit the button to import WMV files to this app.
- Hit the "Add Files" option in this app's pane to import your wanted WMV videos to this app.
- Drag and drop WMV files you want to this app
This app supports batch conversion. You can import and convert several WMV files at a time.
2 Choose an iTunes supported format as the output format
As mentioned above, iTunes supports MPEG-4 in MOV, MP4, M4V format. Here, we take MP4 for example.
In the right side of the interface, hit the "Output Format" button to pop up the output format window. Here, you can open the format drop-down list to select MP4 under the category of "Format">"Video". Of course, you can go to “Apple” category to select any one directly-optimized output format instead.

To start WMV to iTunes conversion, just press the "Convert" button on the bottom-right corner of this app’s interface. Look, this Video Converter is converting WMV files to an iTunes friendly format. You can see the Percent Complete and remaining time. Just let this app run in the background.
When the video conversion is done, you can find the output files by hitting the "Open Folder" button. Then, you can manually drag the output files from the output folder to iTunes library. In this way, you can feel free to play WMV in iTunes!
