Your Guide to WMA

Windows Media Audio (WMA) LogoWMA, which is short for Windows Media Audio, typically refers to a codec created by Microsoft as a competitor to the popular MP3 codec. WMA can be used to compress audio and music, with the resulting file being only a fraction of the size of the original, uncompressed audio file. Such a reduction in file size is important for portable media devices with limited storage capacity, and for streaming media over a slow internet connection.

WMA media files can be played by a number of popular media players, including the Windows Media Player, Winamp and VLC.
