A WMA file is an audio file that uses a proprietary format developed by Microsoft similar to the .MP3 format. It is compressed with Windows Media compression and can be converted to other more standardized formats. The file is often used for playing music from the Web.
Microsoft Windows Media Player 9 was the last version of the Windows Media Player developed for Mac OS X. However, Mac users can use Flip4Mac WMV (also known as Microsoft Windows Media Components for QuickTime) to play WMA files. Windows Media video files use a .WMV extension.
