Opening WM files

Did your computer fail to open a WM file? We explain what WM files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your WM files.

What is a WM file?

Files that contain the .wm file extension are most commonly associated with Windows Media Player files. Windows Media Player is a media playback software that allows users to play movies and music on their computer hard drive.

The WM files that are associated with the Windows Media Player are container files that store video or audio data, or sometimes a combination of both. These files are formatted using the Windows Media Player codec.

The .wma and .wmv file extensions can also be used in place of the .wm extension. The file formats for these file extensions are relatively the same.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
