Did you meet such problems if you are an iPhone (iPhone 3GS, iPhone4) user? Your friends sent you a .wmv video via Email to your iphone 4, and you can’t play it with your iphone. Or you purchased some .wma music or .wmv movies on Amazon, WMP, Zune market, Wal-Mart etc., they are not allowed to play on your iphone. Or you have many music and movies on your laptop or your blackberry or Zune, you can’t play them on your iphone.


For these problems , there are several solutions to solve this problem. For example you can download an iPhone compatible media player which can play wma/wmv files, such as Oplayer. And you can also use some online converting programs or free video conversion applications to convert wma/wmv files to iPhone-friendly video format. Nevertheless, if the wma/wmv files are protected by DRM, the two methods above can do nothing with them. You need a third DRM removal software to free these DRMed wma/wmv files before coverting them for iPhone.


We highly recommed the Audials Tunebite 8 Platinum, which is the best one among five of our tested DRM conversion programs. It remove DRM protection from wma/wmv files by re-recording them at the highest possible quality level to create completely legal, unprotected copies. and also it can help to convert wma/wmv to iphone supported formats. In addition, Audials Tunebite 8 Platinum is quite easy to use and you just need several steps.


1. Check out the Audials Tunebite 8 Platinum review, or Free Download ImTOO DVD Ripper Ultimate directly.

2. Click “add” button to choose wma/wmv files.

3. Select output format and output path supported by iphone.

4. Ok! Click “ start” button.




If your WMV WMA files are not protected by DRM, you can choose two free ways below to play WMV WMA on iPhone.


Method 1. Download and install the Oplayer to your iPhone, this media player supports the WMV/WMA files very well.



Method 2. Ultilize some free video conversion program to convert wmv/wma for iPhone


‘Koyote Free mp3 wma converter’ is a free media converter. Its conversion speed is very fast but its conversion quality is not very high, and output formats are not so many, just ogg, ape, mp3, wav and flav. But you can edit music and video files’ album, artist and title, ect.


Another one is an online video converter. This is a link of free online converter: http://freefileconvert.com/. There you can directly add your music or video files on the website, choose an output formats you want, and then you need to download your converted files from the website. It’s a free way to convert your files if you have much time, cause the conversion speed and download speed are so low and I have never used it again since I tried it once, even its quality is above the standard.
