Convert WVM to MP4 for playing/editing/uploading

July 7 2016 , Written by Bonnie Published on #convert wvm to mp4, #convert video to mp4, #best mp4 video converter

Q: “Which program to use when I need to watch WVM file?” 

Q: “How can i convert a video file from WVM to play on my iphone??” 

Q: “any wvm to mp4 converter?” 

Q: “How to convert a .wvm file?” 


Can't open a .wvm file? 

When you double-click a file to open it, Windows examines the filename extension. If Windows recognizes the filename extension, it opens the file in the program that is associated with that filename extension. When Windows does not recognize a filename extension, you receive the following message: 

Windows cannot open this file: 

example.wvm 

To open this file, Windows needs to know what program you want to use to open it... 

Can I change the extension of files? 

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. 

So you’d better convert WVM to MP4 with a professional video converter for more usages like playing on iPhone, iPad, Samsung, TV, Xbox, PS3/PS4, Plex, etc. 

Method 1. HandBrake 

Handbrake seemed on its last legs back in 2006 when the software’s initial creator, Eric Petit, dropped off the face of the Earth, but development carried on with the help of a few ambitious folk who were driven to update and revise the existing software for a changing world. The open-source video converter now boasts one of the most expansive software packages for ripping and converting video files for playback on number of popular devices such as iPods, AppleTV, and Android tablets. The interface is sleek and well-designed, yet intimidating, offering a variety of customizable, borderline-advanced features that take a bit of getting used to before you can really capitalize on their capabilities and intuitive uses. However, the HandBrake guide and forums are always available if you need help without having to spend ample time fumbling with the program. 

Handbrake also doesn’t feature any ads or bundled malware – a welcome touch – but conversion speeds can drag and the software isn’t light on system resources. Other noteworthy features include an abundance of video editing tools for splicing, adjusting framerate, and adding subtitles and assorted video effects before viewing the results in a live preview window. Experienced users can even queue multiple encodes for quicker batch processing and expedited results sans tedious manual input. 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. 

Method 2. Pavtube Video Converter
